The Shack- Book Recommendation
I used to be a reader. And then I had two kids in 4 years. Now I rarely have time to read. So if I read a book AND take the time blog about it. It has to be good.
I haven't really done any book reviews since college and I don't really like writing them, so we won't call this a book review, but a book recommendation. If you want to know more about the synopsis of the story you can google The Shack or visit The Shack Website
I just wanted to say that this is one of the BEST books I've read in a long time!! It is a fiction story that is almost a modern day parable that describes God's love in simplicity and profoundness. It was a little difficult to get through at times, just because it hit some deep emotions with me... but it took me on a spiritual journey that was incredibly worth it. I found myself laughing, crying, and even worshipping at times. I can not recommend this book enough. It is written for anyone and everyone who has ever had a problem forgiving, letting go, trusting God, or feeling unworthy of God's love. (Ummm... so that's pretty much ALL of US unless you're in some serious denial!!!)
Even if you aren't a big fan of God or church or religious stuff.... I STILL encourage you to read it. It's a N.Y. Times #1 best seller and this is an amazing story. I haven't been this engaged in a story in a long time and it felt good to escape for a while and get lost in this story. If you don't think it was worth the time, you can send me nasty hate mail.
This author is brilliant. I just loved this book.
