    Has anyone read “the Shack” by Wm. Paul Young?
    A friend at work gave me a copy to read and it was a very emotional read. I thought it was a very good story about finding a relationship with God. I really don’t want to tell you more if you haven’t read it – but if you have – I’d like to hear what you thought of the book.

    Talk about being on the same wavelength, Jeannie. I read it last week, realized it would take more than one reading to truly digest that middle section and began it again today. Cannot understand why I hadn’t heard of it before. It’s an engrossing read.

    My friend at work gave me the book to read about 4 weeks ago. I read the forward and then had 3 crazy work days and then Moni came home for a 10 day visit and then we started remodeling the kitchen and Yesterday(Saturday) I picked it up again – started over and could not hardly put it down. It is very engrossing reading indeed. It really pulls my beliefs in God, Jesus, organized religion and spirituality all together – don’t you think?

    Aha! It’s available as an audiobook from our Library… I’ll have Bea pick it up! Thanks for the tip!

    Well, I finished reading The Shack over the weekend — whoa, what can I say? Now that I’ve been through it once, I think I need to go back and take notes! So many “A-ha!” moments, so thought-provoking, and oh, SO quotable!

    Thanks for bringing it to our attention, Jeannie!

    p.s. I was already “casting” people (in my mind!) for certain roles, but something tells me Hollywood probably would not be interested. :(

    Isn’t it amazing. It makes you want to go discuss it with someone. I kept thinking about it for days and days.

    Jeannie,
    I had to read it twice. It’s a lot to digest, so many new ways of thinking about things. I have to return it to the friend who loaned it to me, but I will be getting it for myself. It’s definitely a keeper.

    I need to return the one I read to the friend to loaned it to me. I was hoping Bill would read it too. I may have to re-read it too. I was thinking about giving them as Christmas gifts this year.:hearts:

    There is a discussion book about The Shack called “Finding God in The Shack” by Randal Rauser. I’ve just started reading it but it’s a good way to help better understand the book after you’ve read it!

    I got this as an audiobook loan and the wait was incredible but well worth it. The reader (Roger Mueller) does an awesome job with it. It’s an amazing tale and definitely one to share (thanks, Jeannie). I’m sure I’ll be rereading it again, soon.

    Indeedy… it’s definitely a more-than-once reader.
