inspired me to return to the Bible and learnfind the closeness with God described in The Shack and to see what God s Word said regarding his triune relationship NEVER should anyone replace the Bible with a book that is claimed to be fiction by it s own author but 5 stars to the man who can make your heart yearn to knowabout the Lord through a fiction tale.The book at times moves you to laugh, to cry and to dig deeper foron my review visit www.christinaklas.comSo that s my review As of late people, in the Christian circle, have been discussing whether or not it is right to read a book Since when has it been wrong to read anything I would really LOVE to read the Koran But I want to READ it Not BELIEVE in it If your faith is not strong enough to discern between fact and fiction than, really there areimportant things to worry about And you know what The Shack is an extremely popular book right now So, people are going to talk about it There are even non christians reading it and asking questions I have no idea what they are talking about if I have not read it Now, the Bible can answer all of their questions I just might not understand the context.Some reviews by Christians, of whom their opinion is valued, have even gone so far as to call the act of putting the Holy Spirit and God the Father in human form sinful That is dangerous ground in my opinion The author is admittedly a Christian A God fearing, deity of Christ believing man And, his work is admittedly fiction Is it not just as dangerous to portray God in animal form As a lion perhaps But we don t question the validity of CS Lewis works And have you read The Last Battle Not exactly correct theology there yet fundamentalist Christian churches across the globe don t hesitate to teach sermon after sermon on the symbolism of the redemption story.Have you reviewed The Shack without reading it Or, have you put words in the authors mouth without asking him his intentions I hope I never write a book I am as sinful as it gets And, I know that if I write a piece of work I too will deserve to be called sinful BECAUSE I AM and you know what So are you Let authors have their creative freedom Let people read what they want to and help them to discern the truth from it If we want people to grow to maturity shouldn t we let them question their faith a little And stop scaring people away from having honest questions It s time to get off the milk like babes and learn to eat solid food We do that through questioning and then affirming the truth I know, I know Everyone loves this book No fewer than forty three people asked me Have you read The Shack yet Invariably, they responded to my negative response with something along the lines of You have to It changed my life I was full of questions, and life stunk, and then I read the book, and God made sense to me, I understood quantum physics effortlessly, and all of a sudden I could spin flax into gold So, what I m about to say is going to make a lot of people pretty angry.The Shack I know, I know Everyone loves this book No fewer than forty three people asked me Have you read The Shack yet Invariably, they responded to my

physics effortlessly, and all of a sudden I could spin flax into gold So, what I m about to say is going to make a lot of people pretty angry.The Shack appears to me to be an ex hippie s best attempt at amalgamating God, Dr Phil, and Oprah The writing is bad, the story is cheesy, the format is formulaic and cliche, and the theology is spotty and poorly explained at best, and downright heretical at worst I was not impressed If it makes a lot of people think hard thoughts about God that they d rather avoid, then I suppose that s fine I m just not sure hard thinking should be done at the expense of clear thinking And I m certain bad writing is no way to advance good theology even if this were Having had such high hopes for this book, I was sadly disappointed about its content, being for the most part simply unbiblical Yes, there were poignant scenes and emotional moments that moved me to tears but that does not tip the scales against all of the errors slipped in and truths that were twisted Being protective especially of new Christians, I strongly caution anyone about reading it This book should be read with much discernment.Please read the Bible and learn about the Way, the Trut

book should be read with much discernment.Please read the Bible and learn about the Way, the Truth, and the Life There is nothing good about this book that the Lord can t teach you without it.I d like to write athorough review when I have time For now, here is a good one to read Update Friends, I still do not recommend this book Here are a fewarticles that may help you understand why Reply to It s just fiction comments.http www.challies.com archives gene07 26 17 UPDATE Hi guys I ve meant to come back to this review, especially since the movie came out, but I haven t had the time or energy Yes, OF COURSE God can use anything to reach people Nothing is impossible with Him Years ago, He used the first few chapters of a book to remind me of His love for me and bring me back to Him I stopped reading it once I realized it was a prosperity gospel book, but it had served its purpose I wouldn t recommend reading that book to anyone, and I don t recommend anyone read this book either Why Because it preaches yes, preaches a different gospel and does not line up with the Word of God A close family member of mine was one of the first people to read this book She and the author talked back and forth at length about the theology of it He wrote it to share his views and theology with his children and it got around and became a book My family member gave it to our whole family and told us what a life changing book it had been for her She highlighted it and scribbled in the margins like a Bible This was a pivotal and instrumental book in her life I ll just say I have seen what the fruit of Universalism is Live like hell and go to heaven, even murderers are God s children , it was all forgiven at the cross without repentance If Jesus doesn t judge me, then who the f do you think you are No, I m sorry to say this is not just a book of fiction This book has led many away from the true Gospel So many are aching to know God To know and FEEL the love of God God is love But God is also righteous, just, and holy Universalism is not the Good News The Good News is that God loved the world so much He sent His only Son, Jesus Christ, to take the sin of the world upon Himself and sacrifice His perfect, sinless life and body for us to make atonement for our sins and rescue us from the penalty of sin, hell but we must believe in Him, choose Him, repent of our sins, and submit to His loving authority For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life John 3 16 Then He opened their minds to understand the Scriptures, and said to them, Thus it is written, that the Christ should suffer and on the third day rise from the dead, and that repentance for the forgiveness of sins should be proclaimed in His name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem You are witnesses of these things Luke 24 45 48 If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is LORD and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved Romans 10 9 He must be our Savior AND Lord And He said to all, If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow Me For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it Luke 9 23 24 As an aside, the disrespectful way Jesus was portrayed drove me nuts He was God in the flesh, not a mere clumsy human I cannot go into all of the errors in this book today I don t have the time It reminded me of when Jesus was tempted in the desert and satan twisted scripture at every turn Jesus, as the Word of God, wasthan able to contradict the enemy s lies and silence him with scripture In response to why I delete some comments Way back when I opened my private Goodreads account, I thought my reviews were only for my private Goodreads friendsonly had two negative reviews of this book at the time I read it before it really took off so I figured I d put this out there for my close friends I was taken aback when people started posting on my reviewmany were furious with me and slammed me for being judgmental and bigoted People who didn t know me in real life The hilarity of calling me of all people judgmental and bigoted would have made me laugh if it hadn t make me so mad Ha Some members would friend me only to send me awful messages and I had to request Goodreads to block one particularly vicious member So yes, if someone is condescending or rude, I delete their comment If they are so off the wall, I don t have time to reply, I delete their comment Frankly, I find venomous comments ironic considering what the book teaches They can spew hate on their own review Thankfully, I have the authority to delete comments on mine If you want to post about how your religious degrees and pedigrees or experiences give you the right to belittle me or people like me, do it on your own review None of that will change my narrow mind God has given me peace and discernment about this book I have four kids and little time or patience for anonymous disrespect and online arguments I understand how attached we become to our books especially the ones special to our hearts I can see how this would be that special book to some However, I stand by my original review God bless you all and guide you to Himself Pure drivel This book read like a Betty Crocker

spilled a whole bottle of red wine on his new suit
