Have you read the book "The Shack", by William P. Young?

I did, but I'm re-reading it, and so glad I am. Such an incredible imagery of our loving, living God.

  • Yes read it, met the author and also heard him speak on how he came up with the different stuff . I think there is a podcast on my church's podcast page when he spoke.
    I absolutely loved the book.. it is fiction with a bit of truth mixed in. Excellent writing!

  • I also had a problem with the personifications but I also knew the reasoning behind it...I never finished the book.

  • I have. I had a problem with the personifications, but the end and the overall idea is lasting.

  • Yes, and this one I loved....I loved the imagery of the Holy Spirit, plus that they broke bread and had Eucharist...

    Most of the people I know who didn't like the book, didn't like it because of the personifications. They had a little freak-out when God was portrayed as a black woman. Guess they think they can keep God inside their little box.
