Book Review of The Shack

The Shack
The Shack
Author: William P. Young
Genre: Religion & Spirituality
Book Type: Paperback

This book has forever changed my perception of God and the Trinity (for the better). Like many others, I found Chapter 4 too painful to read. However, skipping the chapter did not impair my understanding of the story line. The writing style is sophomoric, i.e. excessive adverbs, overuse of thesaurus. Yet I found numerous passages inspirational. That being said, I also felt like the author was on a soap box spouting his self-made theology.
I would recommend the book to a friend, with a reminder that the book is fiction.
