Is THE SHACK Biblical?

What I mean by the question:

The Bible presents a particular Character (variously named Yahweh or Elohim or what have you, and later expressed in Jesus, his Abba, and the Holy Spirit) who is worshipped by the ancient Israelites and later by Christians.

Are Papa, Jesus, and Sarayu a faithful depiction of this character from the Bible?

My answer is YES.

I would say that the relationship is very accurate. Also the attitudes are very accurate. What we need to remember though is that it is incomplete. There is no way that the fullness of God can be described by us.

It's like the 3 blind men who felt an elephant. One felt his side and said he was like a house. Another felt his leg and said he was like a tree. The third man felt his trunk and said he was like a snake.

And the elephant not knowing or caring in what way or form he was conceived to be... simply enjoyed being touched in these three endearing ways"
