Okay all you bloggy book clubers (all three of you - if there are more speak up!) It's time for our first review of the year The Shack, by William P. Young.
It seems this book is quite controversial and I do understand why. However, I decided not to look at it from every angle of how it's facts/scripture are wrong and focus on one thing - God's Love.
This book really opened my eyes again. I know it's fiction - but it did remind me at how much God loves and cares for us. And even though it's a very interesting take the Holy Trinity, I did like the visions it brought to my mind.
My favorite part was when Mack was in the garden with the Holy Spirit and he said the garden was a mess. I loved it when the Holy Spirit described the garden as Mack - and she said "it's a mess, but it's a beautiful mess."
I also found it intersting that when Mack was camping and then searching for his daughter the two friends he was with on the campground were named Jessee and Sara - did anyone else see a link to Jesus and Sarayu?
I really don't want this to get into a heated debate on what is wrong and what is right about this book so I leave you with a few questions:
1.) What was your favorite part of the book?
2.) Would you recommend this book and why?
3.) What /how did this book make you feel?
