My great friend, who is also a literature lover, passed The Shack on to me this past weekend. I couldn’t put it down. I read it in two days.
Amazing story about forgiveness and mercy. It challenges how I view the Trinity,what a personal relationship with the Lord looks like and tough questions most people wrestle with deep inside. Certainly it is fiction and none of my personal theology has been altered by it… but it has helped me make sense and sort through some things.
I highly, highly recommend it. It is a great read for people that consider themselves Christ followers or for skeptics. Beautifully written and painfully candid. And yes, I think a fairly quick read as well. I foresee giving it to quite a few loved ones as a gift. It is just that good. Check it out!
