The Shack

I heard from a few people that I should read The Shack by Wm. Paul Young.
I finally broke down and went to the library to get it because I didn't want to spend money on a book that for all I knew would be something I really didn't care for.

So as I said I borrowed it and didn't read it. I left it on my desk for a few days and said okay I got this book for a Christmas read so I better get to it.

What I read was a compelling story of a man who learned that there is no love greater than God's. To forgive is a process not done just in an instant. That even if there had only been one person in this world Christ would have still come to die just for their sins. He learned that lying for the sake of not hurting someone usually meant that that was just a cover up to keep from experiencing their own emotions.

There are some people who have said that this book has too many discrepancies. To that I say, this book shows God's grace. It shows that its all about the relationship. Not just the one we have with God but also the ones we have with one another.

I am so over joyed to have read this book that I plan to buy it.

There is a quote in this book that I would like to share.
"Faith does not grow in the house of certainty."

Thank you Wm. Paul Young for writing this book, God truly spoke through you.

God is love~Jessica
