The Shack The Shack by William P. Young

My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I'm very glad I read this book.

There are many good "truth nuggets" that I will probably go back and re-read, perhaps even highlight.

I think this book affects each person differently based upon happenings in her life and where she is at this point in her life. I found reading this slow for me -- not because of the writing or the story -- but because of the depth of information I was finding. I couldn't take in too much at any one time.

In the latter part of the book -- don't worry, no spoilers -- I found myself reading a few pages and crying a lot. Not happy tears, but not bad tears either. The kind that wet your whole face. Then I'd have to put the book up until the next night because I didn't feel I could emotionally take anymore, or needed to think of this nightly truth nugget, or was just too tired to go on.

As for any controversy, I chose not to read the details before I read this book and still haven't, I don't find any unless people have a problem with the way the Trinity is presented.

If you don't want to read it, or you don't think it appropriate, remember in the forward the writer says then it isn't for you.
