The Shack

I have been meaning to read this book for quite some time. I heard so many people singing its praises, and equally as many people ready to ban and burn it. Having read this book, and working on my second time through, I can understand why people have truly appreciated and learned and grown from this book, and also why some people think it is blasphemous.

The author makes some very good points about forgiveness and love. The author also has some unusual beliefs about salvation and incarnation. Overall, the book was worth reading, but worth reading with ones eyes wide open.

I have read it twice. Enjoyed it both times. But folks need to remember it is fiction and to put on their glasses of discernment. Reminded me of the DiVince Code that came out a few years ago.
