I am impressed

Post by David » Sun Jul 08, 2018 7:58 pm

My daughter bought me a novel she had read as a gift for me on Amazon. Amazon sent me The Shack by mistake. As pretty much of a lifelong agnostic, when I opened the package and perused the cover, it occurred to me this was an atypical book for her to choose for me. I called her to inquire as to why she had chosen it for me only to learn that this was not the book she purchased, and she would contact Amazon to have the correct book sent. I am a voracious reader, so meanwhile, I decided to read The Shack. I found it contains some of the best discussions of God I've ever read or heard. I intend to reread the book and more deeply analyze it in light of my own perceptions of Biblical teachings as they are familiar to me.

David, I'm glad that you are open to the ideas of God as presented in The Shack. Amazon might have made a mistake but God didn't. 😀

Hi David, nice to "meet you"! I had to laugh as I was reading your post, as that is pretty much what happened with me too! Do come back and let us know what you think once you have reread it.
