I've had many people suggest that I read The Shack. I'm about 3/4 into it and am not too excited about it. It's about a little girl who got abducted. Her father blames himself and can't get over it. He gets a message to go to the shack where they found her bloody clothes. He goes and it's changed into "heaven" with Papa (God) the son and holy ghost. Kind of dumb if you ask me.

My book club read The Shack last month. I didn't find it as life changing as everyone says it is. THought it had some interesting points, like God's opinions on organized religion, etc. But in general, I don't read too many books on religion.

I've seen lots of recommendations to read this one, but I can tell by the description that it's not for me. From your reactions I believe I was right. I guess I'm not easily transformed or swayed religiously. And I think I'm difficult too, because if Oprah says I must read something, nothing on this earth is going to make me read it. LOL

I just finished reading this book last week and all I have to say is "its okay". I think its meant for someone who doesn't know God at all. I consider myself spiritual, but not overly religious. But my beliefs are already pretty solid, so hearing someone else's views on religion isn't really the high point of my day. I CAN say it was a real "easy" read. It took me all of three days. And I did like some of the points it made....it didn't go AGAINST anything I already believe....but it's not a book I would enjoy rereading.
