The Shack

Ladies and gentleman,

Introducing one of my favorite reads by far! #1 New York Times Best Seller since June 2008....

“The Shack” by William Paul Young is simply incredible!

The title of the book is a metaphor for “the house you build out of your own pain”, as Young himself explained. Places you get stuck, you get hurt, you get damaged, the thing where shame or hurt is centered"

The book is best described as a journey of questioning and discovery. I was so blessed by this intelligently written novel that addressed various issues we so often struggle with in our world of pain and suffering.

It is a very engaging book! I was so engrossed even as I started on the first chapter and was so determined to finish it the same day or else cannot sleep!

I particularly loved how the author has such remarkable revelations. It gets you out of a rut delivering beautiful insights from a perspective which we many times fail to see on our own. It’s a must read!

Dear friends, its absolutely worthwhile! So you should look our for it and consider getting a copy! :)

Amongst the many things that really strike me as I was reading through the book, here are some I jotted down to share:

  • Pain has a way of clipping our wings and keeping us from being able to fly.
  • The past is only for a visit not an extended stay. Where do you spend most of your time in your mind?
  • The Great Sadness reduces the range of color down to monotones and flat greys and blacks.
  • Just because God work incredible good out of unspeakable tragedies doesn’t mean He orchestrate the tragedies
  • Grace doesn’t depend on suffering to exist, but where there is suffering you will find grace in many facets and colors.
  • Imagination is a powerful ability. But without wisdom, imagination is a cruel task master
So sit back, relax and unwind to a great book that will be a read without regrets! Would love to hear what you think about it.
