Changing your perception of God

This past week, I finished reading The Shack by William P. Young, and I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it ever since I put it down.

I’ve never read a book that paints a more “real-life” portrait of God than this one. Not just the God-who-reigns-over-all portrait, but the God-who-asks-“Hey-Jill-what’s-on-your-mind?” portrait. There’s a big difference.

If you’re someone who grew up in a church were God rained down fire and brimstone upon all—everyday, all day—then this book is for you.

If you grew up thinking God is some sort of being that floats around in the sky and skips about clouds, then this book is for you.

If you’ve ever wondered if God can really be your father, then this book is for you.

If your own father never really treated you like you’ve always thought a father should treat his child, then this book is for you.

If you’ve ever judged the person next to you on the bus, the person ahead of you in the checkout line or the person whispering behind you in church, then this book is for you.

And lastly, if you’ve ever had something so horribly bad happen in your life that you’re just not sure how you’re ever going to be able to move past it, then this book is absolutely for you.

It really is. But don’t take my word for it. Go read it yourself.
