The Shack


What is it about this new (well not too new) book called "The Shack"? I see it everywhere. I see a lot of people reading it. A lady in my office read it and said that it was a wonderful book. A radio personality in Christian radio devoted a few (not one but a few) programs on the book. I don't get it. I have not read the book yet. I've got a nightstand full of books that I'm reading so the last thing I need to do is put another on the stack. What I would like to know is this book worth it? Should I stop reading these other books and dive into this one? You tell me.

DON'T read it. It isn't worth your time. Mike, I read it and it is blasphemy and heresy. I actually got a physical stomach-ache from reading it because the Holy Spirit living inside of me was so grieved. Check out these links and reviews from Focus on the Family. They explain a lot.
