The Wm. Paul Young~

I tend to read for enlightenment, although I do occasionally read just for the fun of it. As a child in need of escaping the world around me, I read voraciously. I devoured book after book after book.

This weekend I read a book recommended by my counselor: The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. What an incredible book it is! Mack, the main character, encounters God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit for a weekend that ultimately provides much needed healing, answers to many of his questions, and changes him for life.

My favorite line from the book? "Rights are where surviors go, so they won't have to work out relationships."

This book does not shove religion down the readers throat, in fact, it does quite the opposite.

Religious critics who bash this book have missed the message and attack the messenger. That is unfortunate, as their bashing may cause some hurting soul to miss the thrust and life changing information woven into the story.

This is a MUST-Read!

I liked THE SHACK . . . even if I thought the author took some creative liberties with the theology . . . great message of God's grace.
