The Shack

I'm in Lyon for the 13th Conference of European Churches Assembly focusing on 'Called to One Hope in Christ'. The flight over was choppy but not quite as choppy as one rugby international flight over Dublin with Ryanair. I won't bore you with the story.

Late on Thursday night I enjoyed the company and the blessing of some new friends at Churches Together in Britain and Ireland Stewardship Conference in Newport. I was told that I really should read The Shack by Wm Paul Young. I duly obeyed and got a copy from WH Smith in Bristol Airport.

Normally, I prefer reports to other sorts of books. Reports provide me with information and detail. To be honest, I struggle with other sorts of books. Not this one however!

Between Bristol and Lyon, I had read half a book and not found the need to retain all the details. For tired, worn out or just very hurt Christians, The Shack is a must read book. Honestly, go and buy it now and read it straight away. It may very well change the way in which you see God.

Many,many thanks to Wm Paul Young and to my new friends who told me to read a book. I should also add that non-Christians will also enjoy this read.
