the shack

the_park_infrared_by_dingodave

I finally finished reading The Shack. I really enjoyed it and am not sure why I put it down for a month and a half. Anyway, I highly recommend it. Especially if you’re someone who, like me, is a big fan of God but not of Religion.  Written by Wm. Paul Young, it contains little pearls of wisdom.  I did a lot of underlining. I think I’ll post a quote every now and then. I had a hard time choosing one to start with, but finally settled on this one:

“The will to power and independence has become so ubiquitous that it is now considered normal….It is the human paradigm…so prevalent that it goes unseen and unquestioned. It is the matrix; a diabolical scheme in which you are hopelessly trapped even while completely unaware of its existence.”

  1. That’s an interesting way of putting it. “A big fan of God, but not of religion.” That is me!! I’ll have to check this one out…eventually 🙂

  2. I still have this book sitting on my shelf, it was a gift. I’ll eventually get to it once I finish the books I’m reading now.

  3. This is kind of a weird comment…something like my other ones. But I was at Barnes and Nobles today and happened to turn around and see this book (The Shack) on the bestsellers shelf. I picked it up and noticed another bestseller called Sundays at TIFFANY’s. I just went ahead and bought both books. LOL. I have no idea when I will be able to read them 🙂
