The Shack by William P. Young

Someone at Naznet recommended "The Shack" by William P. Young some weeks ago and it sounded intriguing, so I requested that my public library purchase it for me and they did! All the reviews (here is a particularly informative review) I've read entice me and I can't wait to get started on it. I will post again once I've read the book or sooner if so inclined.

The back cover of the book says:

"If anything matters then everything matters. Because you are important, everything you do is important. Every time you forgive, the universe changes; every time you reach out and touch a heart or a life, the world changes; with every kindness and service, seen or unseen, my purposes are accomplished and nothing will ever be the same again."

~ William P. Young in The Shack

Hi, Robin. I just hopped over from Ashley's blog which I found from Randy Alcorn's.

I love, love, love to read, and many of the authors you've listed are some of my favorites.

I write too, and I'd love to have you review one of my books sometime.

Blessings!

Hi Marla,

Just wanted to say I'd be interested in knowing what you have written. Do you have a blog or website?

Merry Christmas!

I greatly enjoyed and appreciate this book - I put it on hold until after Christmas because we had a lot going on - also because I didn't want to be finished with it. I wanted "Mack" to remain where he was in my mind for a while as I processed some of what Mr. Young was sharing in his book.

I have to say that "The Shack" by William P. Young was a very thought provoking read.

After reading the book, I was left pondering several things about it – which is a true testament to the book's worth. I had several questions on the validity of some of the descriptions of God but I had to humbly admit that there may be no answers this side of heaven for how God presents Himself to each individual.

I posted a more in-depth review of this book on my own blog www.tracysbooknook.com.
