I've read this book. I think it is very interesting though controversial. It is a novel so I think you can enjoy it even if you don't completely agree with it theologically. It certainly is a popular book right now.

Ginger, let us know what you think of the book. I am always looking for devotionals and this one looks interesting.

God bless.

I haven't heard about it. You will have to let me know what you thought...

Hi Ginger,
I read it and enjoyed it very much. As your reading it keep in mind that it is a dream and it is a novel. I would highly recommend it to a Christian that was grieving. Our book club read it and we had some interesting conversation to say the least.
It will make you think.
PS I found you on Charlotte's blog. I hope you don't mind my 2cents :)

Hi Ginger,
I passed an award on to you today. You can see it on my blog.
Have a great day!

I look at your interesting blog everyday. However, it's apparent you don't look at mine. (Just teasing. I realize you have better things to do). Monday, Feb.18, I wrote "A Book Worth Reading." I like the Shack but I do think that some will find it confusing and maybe even disturbing. Others will love it and benefit from it--especially those who are struggling with some loss.

Happy Birthday! I sent you guys a card but I think I put the wrong zip code on it. So maybe you'll get it some day.

Hi Ginger!

First let me say your banner is just lovely! You have such a warm and inviting place here...lovely indeed. About the Shack, It is a new one for me too and is getting great reviews! I do plan to purchase it soon! You have a wonderful rest of the week!

Hi Ginger!

I was going to pose a similar question on my own blog. Hmm. Great minds?

I thought the book was very thought provoking and comforting. Like Charlotte said, it's a novel--fiction. There were some parts that were a little hard to accept theologically, but the author was making a point to shake up our concept of God in many ways. I've thought about it alot since reading it.

BTW, welcome to the Company Girls! (A belated welcome)
