YOU JUST GOTTA READ. . .
. . . “The Shack,” by William P. Young
No matter what, get your hands on a copy of this book and read it! I was loaned one and I read all 248 pages of it in one day! The book is mesmerizing and will take you on a journey into the very heart of God our Father, or as Mack, the main character in the book learns to call him, “Papa.”
Mr. Young weaves his story and plot so successfully that at times I would have to remind myself to breathe, as I became so riveted by the word pictures he painted. I was drawn so deeply into a world, which by the author’s admission is a work of fiction, yet I walked away feeling that Mr. Young so accurately captured the very essence of the three-person Trinity of God the Father, Jesus the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Somehow, Mr. Young’s story makes perfect sense, and he brought me a step closer toward understanding that God is “especially fond of” each and every one of His created children.
God bless and enjoy the ride!
