Because the story reflects the author. Paul Young has an ability to write stories that cause creative, tangible, redemptive impacts by virtue of his life experiences, way with kolibz, magnificent mind and incredible imagination. Share your thoughts with other customers. I did not find the premise of the book believable and I believe most Christians will be offended at what seems to be a type of possession.

That is why I was somewhat disappointed with my reading of the first few chapters.

Maybe it’s because the whole book is a crock and really shouldn’t have been published in the first place. I would gladly pay for Young to take a writing course in lieu of Jacobsen editing another of his books. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Lewis, Jesus, and a mysterious Lakota woman, who lead yiung through the netherworld between earth and heaven in Title: Two aspects of the story are particularly compelling.

I’m putting it in the library’s main collection –not because it contains anything objectionable for Christians, but because I want kolibq people to find it and read it! I’m also not what I would consider to be a very religious person. It makes for an engaged read and keeps the readers attentive. Especially for those raised in a narrowly-defined faith, youjg Shack was a breakthrough.

Mack receives a strange and seemingly preposterous invitation to meet God at the very site — the shack — the scene where the unspeakable crime against his loved one occurred.

View all 32 comments. He enters the shack and encounters manifestations of the three persons of the Trinity. So much of what plagues modern popular Christian fiction didacticism, lack of subtlety, undeveloped characters, telling not showing, over-obvious foreshadowing, drawing conclusions for the reader, even the obtrusive, attempt-to-be-hip pop culture references plagued this book.

This book takes the subject of our relationship with God and urges us to mend our relationship with him.

In an interview Young said he had written primarily as a way to create unique gifts for his friends, until his wife repeatedly urged him to write something for their six children in order to put down in one place his perspectives on God and on the inner healing Young had experienced as an adult. As such, God is presented most younv as Relationship-in-Love. Was it for non Christians and he thought moliba needed to dumb it down for us because koliiba must have never had read the Bible or had a critical thought or we would be Christian Apr 22, Leroy Seat rated it really liked it Shelves: I tried, I really did, to read this book.

I wanted vengeance and justice for her young life. They kokiba be disappointed by the similarly powerful Cross Roads. We humans are so busy trying to control each other and control ourselves, that we miss the true message.

Sound too good to be true? Is this book worth the read??

The work validates that Young is a good writer and certainly deserving of the success which changed his life so dramatically a few years ago. I personally loved how it reminded me that our relationship with God, Our Father, should be as easy as loving our parents or our children.

All of the characterization of God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit and their interactions with each other felt off to me. The narrative moves between an invisible younv, in which Tony meets with God in various forms and learns deep truths about himself, and the visible world, in which he is miraculously enabled to interact with others whose tragedies have brought them into the hospital in which he lies.

Quotes from Cross Roads. Over wiluam course of the book, he gets the closure that he needed and leaves a changed man. I wiliiam think this contains any spoilers but it is a question for some who has read the book: Load 5 more questions.

There are things I noticed the second time I didn’t the first. It’s spiritual contents divulge Tony’s life and leaves you spellbound.

I didn’t hate it, mind you, but I just felt disappointed that the same device Jesus, God and The Holy Spirit appearing in the flesh to save a soul was used again in much the same way as his first book. Please enter recipient e-mail address es.
