THE SHACK



I just finished reading The Shack and recommend it to EVERYONE. What an AMAZING book full of hope and working through the challenges that life and grief bring. I'm not an avid reader at all, but it is a goal of mine. However, when I find a book that I like, I will read it cover to cover as quickly as I can, as I did this book.

This book is not written for Christians. It is written for everyone no matter of their religious preference or level of faith they do or do not have. Please give yourself an amazing gift in 2009 and read this book! I would lend you my copy, but I am not letting it go. When you read it - which is very soon I hope - be sure to read the foreword. It will make the book fit together like the beautiful puzzle that it is.

The past two nights of reading "The Shack" have reformed my mind, my relationships, and my outlook on life. I feel a sense of purpose, comfort, purpose, and (*gulp* dare I say it?) . . . hope . . . that I haven't felt in a long time.

This post made me weepy; I'm glad you found hope again- You are in my daily prayers. Know that.

Thank you for the recommendation! I almost bought this in the airport the other day but picked Eat, Pray, Love instead. I think both suit my needs at this moment as well.
Thank you for sharing so openly your feelings and your struggles.
I hope that 2009 brings you blessings!

I love love love this book also! I read it last summer and I am looking forward to reading it again. Good suggestion. What was your favorite chapter? I think mine was the one titled "God on the dock"
