I just finished reading the book, THE SHACK, by William P. Young. I highly recommend this read for anyone.
I have to admit, however, this wasn't an easy read for me. I tend to be a skimmer reader, quickly reading a book. This is not one of those books. You do want to find out what happens in the end, but you have to read carefully. I even found myself having to re-read things I had just read. Also, at first, I didn't really like the story and was ready to put it down...it was kind of..well, strange. I didn't even know if I should be reading it. But as I read further, I was really interested and I'm glad I read it to the end.
The book is about a man and father who experiences a great tragedy in his life, and in dealing with this he is able to meet, confront, and talk to God. It's a really good story and incredible message. I don't want to give more away than that. If you do find yourself reading it, don't put it down if you get the same feeling I had in the beginning. Read it in it's entirety.
I'd love to hear any comments from anyone that reads it OR has already read it. What do you think about it?
