You ask I will answer!


So in my quest to see what you have been reading this summer someone asked about The Shack. Well I hadn't heard of this book yet. I am not sure why as it seems to have caused quite a stir in the Christian community. So I have ordered it online. I will not get this book until mid September as it is combined in an order of 2 other books I want that are not even out yet. I pre-ordered Devil Bones and Death Swatch. They are both books by authors and in series I really enjoy. I did not want to pay more shipping to have The Shack come in it's own order so I have to wait. BUT I will read it and I will let you all know what I think of this book.

My sister has it, so I plan to borrow it from her and check it out. :)

I am interested to hear what you think about it. I haven't read it, but I've heard that it's really blasphemous and not very Biblical. I like you're idea of doing a book review every week. I'm looking forward to it!

I have read it and I would just like to say that I think people are taking it a bit too seriously. It's not a theology book, it is fiction. Fiction, fiction, fiction. Written by a man who loves God and had a creative idea about a fictional story about God and a man. I call it beautiful allegory and certainly not blasphemy.

Sorry, I didn't mean to stir anything up! Like I said, I haven't read it myself, I've just read reviews. I'm looking forward to your review of it!
