  • The Shack

    Ok so I cannot for the life of me find a place to discuss books, so I have decided to do it hear.
    With that I was wondering who has read the book "The Shack" ?
    If you have I was hoping for what you thought of it. I read it and thought it was the most wonderful book I have read in a while. Truly great stories about Gods love for us.
    If you have not I am hoping that this discussion might interest you in reading it.

    And discuss….lol

    I read it. It has a powerful message of spirituality and faith for the central character, who as you know suffered the loss of his child through other than natural means which would be horrible enough on it's own.

    I can't think of a trial of faith that would be more shattering than to lose your child through rape and murder. The guilt that parent feels, in their mind and soul, for failing to protect their child and the natural order be turned upside down.

    I nearly lost my one and only child at birth, to e-coli and pneumonia, and was the closest I've ever been to insanity during the three weeks he was in PICU. I've never prayed so hard in my life and will be eternally grateful that he survived it. Not sure what would have happened otherwise.

      I read it a while ago. I enjoyed it, but I think it was a little deliberate when pulling at the heart strings.

      I think Lovely Bones, while not focused on spiritual growth, did a great job showing how tragedy impacts a family.

      Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal is another favorite...on the surface it looks like farce, and there are some funny bits...it packs a serious, spiritual one-two punch.

        Christopher Moore is one of my favorite authors. Great book.

          I read it back in May. Great book, really re-worked my relationship with God. When I first read it, I was rolling my eyes over all this talk of faith and God. Wehn I was done it gave me a whole new outlook on religion.
