Not done reading yet

Post by catholicwifeandmom » Mon Apr 10, 2017 6:10 pm

Well as stated I've just started reading the book. I'll wait to see the movie until I'm finished. So far the theology is pretty sound. As a Catholic I may look at Faith through a slightly different lens but I do know that God is Love.

I'm intrigued by how the Trinity is portrayed. Since I'm not very far into the book I don't have much to add here. But I'm always excited to share my faith.

God bless you,
catholicwifeandmom

Welcome catholicwifeandmom!

The Shack is somewhat unique in the way it presents a God of love and one that wants to be engaged with us!

Blessings,
Papalovesyou
May we all come to know Papa as we are known... and see ourselves as He sees us!

Okay, seriously, as much as I like calling people by their names, your screen name is just way too long, LOL!! So, wife and mom, welcome to the forum! I will be waiting with baited breath to see what you think as you get into the book!

I found this book in Barnes and Noble, I sat reading while having a little lunch and could not put the book down. I ended up buying it, when I got home , I went on iTunes to check something and saw the music for the shack, which by the way is amazing and then while watching the Grammy awards Octavia Spencer mentioned the book and when I mentioned it to my friend she told me about the movie coming out. So I am now at chapter 10 and can not put this book down at al, and I am most definitely going to see the movie to. this book is amazing. To me this is not coincidental right, I don't think I found the book, I think the book found me. Oh also wanted to mention, I love the review James Ryle gave for your book.

Coincidence is just Papa's way of remaining anonymous. :mrgreen:

Try replacing the word "coincidence" with "Godincidence" :)
