I just finished readin THE SHACK and getting ready to read Tommy Tenney's book THE ROAD HOME. I don't often read as much but I'm in St. Louis and it's too nasty cold to do anything else.

Rereading "The Shack", the author is going to be at our church in Feb, I am going to join a study group beginning Jan. 11. We are going to discuss "The Shack".

I still believe this book opens many questions that a great number of believers deal with, I am looking forward to some lively discussion.

I may start a thread on some of the discussion.

Crakjak, did you like "The Shack"? I can't say that I did. It was the kind of book I couldn't stop reading, but not because I enjoyed it and certainly not because I agreed with it. Our pastor is telling everyone to avoid it like the plague. My Emmaus Share Group, however, has all loved the book.

I'd be interested in your perspective on it.

The Shack is one of those books that you either love or hate. I, for one, loved it.

The biggest issue that the "hate it" crowd seems to have are theological in nature. (i.e. that it doesn't fit into their theological box).

The "love it" crowd, usually point out that it is fiction and somewhat of a parable, and is intended to provoke discussion and make one think, not to teach matters of doctrine.

Well, I'm different. (Shock!) I neither loved it nor hated it. Here's my review:

OK, so I mostly hated it. :lol
