I know we have talked about this book before, but The Shack is definitely one of the greatest books I have ever read. I believe this story touches on many of the ways of how God operates and feels about ALL of His children. It is definitely a must read, in my opinion, for all followers of Christ. I know for me, The Shack has brought a new and refreshed motivation for seeking the Lord, and a new desire pursue of love.

THE SHACK touches on so many areas of life and faith. I could talk about many, but one is the idea that God doesn't really have "expectations" of us... or at least they are not the starting point in our relationship with him. Since reading the book, I've been trying an experiment of having no (it's probably not fully possible) expectations of my wife. I told her that she doesn't need to feel like she needs to do anything for me, I just want to love her and serve her with no expectations in return - and see what that looks like. It's actually deepened an already very strong marriage. We seem to serve each other even more than before. Very cool!! Can God really be like that? Or does he lay a bunch of expectations on us? Does his love transform us and compell us to love and serve others? Or does our fear of disappointing him or not living up to his expectations drive us to good works?


I just recommended this book today, to my writer's group. None of the seven that attended today have read it. I describe it as Life changing. I look at God so differently now and the book has brought me a peace like I have never known. God spoke to me so powerfully through that book.
