The Shack

At Catalyst, Ernie Johnson (of TNT basketball coverage) interviewed William Paul Young, the author of the Christian novel, The Shack. I had never heard of Mr. Young nor his book. And to be honest, not having read the book, I couldn't follow the interview too well.

In fact, after the interview was over, I really had no clue to what the book was about, other than it was a Christian novel that Mr. Young had written for his soon-to-be-adult children. What got me, though, was how Ernie Johnson was so moved by the book. Having seen Ernie on TV a lot, this surprised me. So, I got the book.

With Amy and the kids out of town this past weekend, I read The Shack. It is best book that I have ever read that describes God's love for us (all of us) besides the bible. Now I understand why Ernie had a hard time describing it. It is a book that you experience. I highly recommend it.
