Highly Recommended: The Shack

I must say by The Shack by William P. Young is one of the best book I’ve ever read this year. Not only does it bring to greater light God’s love for mankind, it also presents sound answers to most of our questions regarding good and evil, life and death, and many other ‘theologically-related’ issues. There are so many ideas in this book which will make you stop reading and do thorough introspection. It is very thought-provoking and very moving at the same time.

What I like about the book is how the Trinity is being represented. You may be shocked or repulsed by it, but the characterization in my opinion is very appropriate and serves well the author’s very purpose: to portray God as a very loving, very forgiving, very joyful and very gracious ‘Papa’.

The story centers on a man named Mack who lost his daughter during a camping trip and instead finds God in a shack. You will be moved to tears in every chapter as we join Mack in his rediscovery of the goodness of an infinitely loving God, whose only desire to smack us right into the middle of His LOVE!

I am told that the ‘ideas’ presented in this book comprises the bulk of our Statement of Beliefs in church (WCG). I am very happy and proud to know that these are what we as a church believe in. Read this book. I highly recommend it!
