The Shack

Over the past month I keep stumbling on conversations with people who are reading, have read or want to read “The Shack”.  Those who’ve read it kind of smile a mysterious smile and say, “Oh, The Shack, yes, very interesting….” in a kind of creepy way.  A few friends are reading now and say, “yeah, I can’t put it down.”  or “…it’s totally freaking me out.” 

Okay – I’m intrigued.  Rob ordered the book for me from and it arrived yesterday.  I tried to start it last night, but after reading the 3rd paragraph 20 times I realized I’d been falling asleep.  Now, I truly don’t think it’s because of the book’s content – I was just exhausted.  I’m looking forward to seeing what all the fuss is about.

If you’ve read it, please don’t give anything away, but let me know if you:

  1. Loved it
  2. Hated it
  3. Tolerated it
  4. Laughed at it
  5. Would recommend it
  6. Would never read it

I’ll keep you posted on my thoughts…..

    I am hosting a “discussion club” on it this summer…we’re gonna read it and then gather to hash it out and I’ll be posting people’s thoughts at my site. I can’t wait!

    I am soliciting a “book club” group just for this read! We could really get a diverse group together and I’m curious to see what other believers think about this.
