Annotation:

In this five-session video Bible study (DVD/downloads sold separately), bestselling author Bob Goff shares some of the stories from his life that have helped him understand what it truly means to love everybody the way Jesus loved them–without fear, insecurity, or restriction. This begins by loving people right where you are through serving and helping the neighbors God has placed into your world. It means loving people when they mess up and helping them move past the place of shame to acceptance. It continues by being courageous and following where God leads one step at a time–even if you fell you are flying blind. Above all, it means not just agreeing with Jesus but actually stepping out and doing what Jesus said.

Following Christ means more than just putting a toe in the water when it comes to loving others. It means grabbing your knees and doing a cannonball! And, as Jesus revealed, it means loving the difficult ones. Everybody, Always will provide practical steps to help you take that journey.

The Everybody, Always Study Guide includes video discussion questions, Bible exploration, and personal study and reflection materials for in-between sessions.

Sessions include:

  1. Love People Where You Are
  2. Catch People on the Bounce
  3. Don’t Play It Safe
  4. Look at What’s in Your Bucket
  5. Love Even the Difficult People

Designed for use with the Everybody, Always Video Study (9780310095361), sold separately.

Goff—founder of Love Does, an NGO that provides educational services to children in conflict zones—laces together lively accounts of his casual and intimate interactions with people all over the world in this primer on becoming the essence of love. To Goff, "becoming love" is a central principle that directs his actions and service toward others. "People who are becoming love see the beauty in others even when their off-putting behavior makes for a pretty weird mask," he says. Goff writes of his neighbor Carol, who, after she developed cancer, started chatting with him on a walkie-talkie each day to help her cope with her fears; an airport employee (Goff is also a pilot) whom he has helped with adoptions; and the Yazidi children he teaches in Northern Iraq. Readers will laugh at Goff's antics and musings amid his tireless work on behalf of others ("We agreed if Sweet Maria ever decides to leave me, she has to take me with her," he writes of his wife while describing the rocky start to their marriage), and skydiving trips with his son between welcome parties for refugees whom he helps to settle within the U.S. The remarkable breadth of Goff's experiences and humility of his approach will help his call for becoming love resonate with readers.
