So where's the snow?

Muddling through in Austria; God, life and a small black dog

The Shack

5 Comments

I came across this book in the local library and downloaded it onto my Kindle as I felt I’d lose a lot in trying it in German!  I wont say much about the plot etc as you need to read this book yourself.  It’s a novel, it’s not a real experience, but it’s simple story of a damaged man spending a weekend with God and it had me mesmerised. Shame it’s called a shack, which sounds unpleasant but it fits the story, I’d rather it was a hut, as in the German translation!

It’s not the Bible, it’s a man’s agenda, but what God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit do in this tale gives a possibility, an imagining, of how this three-way bond could be.  I didn’t agree with all it said, but there is so much love there, so much of what I believe as a non denominational Christian, and which I’ve heard taught by Joyce Meyer, Andrew Wommack, Hillsong, Willow Creek, that there is a huge credence to it. 

It set my vision of God free, to  feel his love and touches of the spiritual world, the bigger picture, the more important picture.  Its set something free in me.  I’ve felt closer to tears and closer to God for it.  Read it and judge for yourself.

Of course, I had to research it  and saw the Pharisees and Sadducees on the modern formal American church condemned it – they would.  People who read it appreciate it! I guess the end timers won’t like it either as there’s no panic there, just peace. And there has been a law suit with  bickering  over the profits, so human and so of the devil to want to wreck (by the way, he had no appearance in the book). There’s also the Missy project wich asks people to promote the book, hence my bit  above!

Read it and decide for yourself!

  2. I loved The Shack. It’s beautifully dark. The relationship with God in all three forms is unique. But God is. God is greater than all we know. Why do we limit Him to our dictates? Just wondering. And another question, does He worry about our dictates? I think mostly He just grins at our innocence

  3. I read this book as well. And recommended it to family and friends. I felt like the demonstration of love and community outweighed by far the comments made by some. Glad you liked it!
