The Shack
« on: April 04, 2009, 04:29:48 AM »
This book has literally changed my life.  I am not one to go on and on about something and I am not a religous person... I was raised with that ugly Catholic school guilt and turned my back on church as soon as they let me out of my Catholic high school 19 years ago.
It is a short work of fiction (less than 250 pages), written by William P. Young.
It addresses the question... WHERE IS GOD IN A WORLD SO FILLED WITH UNSPEAKABLE PAIN?  Deep stuff!  Yet written so beautifully and simply in a story that I could not put it down.  I cried and I laughed and found myself rereading it the day after I finished it... something I have never done.
I still have no plans to go back to church and I am no holy roller, but after reading this book I now crave a relationship with God and have actually started to pray.  Maybe it is the answer to the terrible emptiness I feel inside since I was diagnosed HIV+.
I hope you will take the time to read this book and respond to my post if you do.
