Last week, while I was off for paternity leave, I read The Shack by William Paul Young.

I was a little apprehensive about the book before I started reading it, given the mixed reviews I got of the book. (from people who will remain nameless)

My impression: WOW. The language was very descriptive and flowery, but my brain didn’t have to try very hard to picture the scene. AND, I cried during like the last 6 chapters. (And I’ve only cried at 2 books. Tony Dungy’s book and The Cat Who Went to Heaven.)

I loved this book because it challenged my concept of God, justice and forgiveness. It is a must-read, in my opinion.

Have you read The Shack? What are your thoughts?
