The Shack

Have you read The Shack?  I’m in the process of reading it right now, and I must say, it has given me a great deal to think about.  It has challenged my perception of God and the Church.  For starters, the Father as a big black woman?  You’ll just have to read the book to find out what I mean.

Anyway, this book was given to Andrew and I as a wedding gift, and I finally opened it up yesterday.  I’m already about three-fourths of the way through and can’t wait to get to the end.  The first few chapters were a little tough to get through, just because of the overwhelming loss of the main character.  But, oh my, the rest of the book is overwhelmingly redemptive.  Now I wish that God would take me to a shack for the weekend so we could have a face to face.
