So, I must add another blog entry for today... before I go to bed (I am sleepy).
I picked up the book 'The Shack' the other day and started reading it as a fiction book that I could read in between all of my studies. Buckhead/NorthPoint Churh has graciously given me a lot of books to read about their practices, management, etc which I have been reading and are throughly enjoying however I can only read so many in a row before I want to read a 'for-fun' kinda book. Which is why I picked up 'The Shack.' I thought it would be a fun, Christian book I could read quickly and then go back to the study books.
I was sooooo wrong. I have heard mixed reviews from people on the book. Maybe I am just very young in my faith, my relationship, my trust. However, this book is speaking to me. So much so that I have turned it into a study book. I am taking furious notes. Its amazing. Its packaging up so many of the lessons that I have learned recently and adding a pretty little bow to them. However I think my head is going to explode with all this new information. I want to remember it all, but know its not possible. This is definitely a re-readerer.
If you haven't read it yet (even though I am only on chapter 10 -- about 1/2 way) I would recommend it. Even if I hated the rest I have learned a lot!
