Hi moms! I'm new here ( but I do recognize some moms from other communities:). Could someone fill me in on the book for the month of May? I have a visual bookshelf on FB if anyone is interested...

I quite enjoyed "The Shack" - it was a nice, refreshing story. I wouldn't base any doctrine on it though. I heard somewhere that the author doesn't believe that Jesus' death was substitutionary, or something along those lines.



So that was the book for April. What's up for May?!

I have the paperback of this book. Is it only the hard cover that has the study at the end?

I read this one awhile back but I will go through the study at the back. It was a great book, I even got my 18 yr. old to read it and she loved it.

I just tried looking this book up at our local library. They have 13 copies of it. All are checked out and there are 20 holds waiting for it! I checked the library in my Mom's county and they have 70 copies of the book and only 4 are available so I'm sending her tomorrow to pick it up for me. :-)

I finished it again, speedily, again! I struggle to go slow and really study it, maybe it's some inner rebellion against varisty memories! Two things that really caught my eye:

1. The scene where the Papa characher listens to hiphop music by non-saved artists and says that he is especially fond of them etc...we tend to forget that ALL mankind are God's children and He loves all, even the unsaved ones - they just need to accept Him.

2. Also the judgement scene where has to choose which of his children are going to hell and which to heaven...boils down to same principle...God really wants all of us saved and with Him, He does not want to loose people to hell.

I am now (speedily again) reading "Finding God in The Shack" and finds it really interesting./ Didn't even think about possible theological debates regarding the Trinity, God depicted as female etc, but apparantly that is a huge problem for c

ritics of The Shack.

Anne,

I have to say this is one of my all time favorite books...I tell everyone if they choose to read it they need to make sure they have a full box of tissue...I was moved thru the entire book...Not just on what happen but the way things kinda fell into place all along the way...And the only comment I will make at this time is "What a wonderfully messy garden I have

Hi, I did read the book "The Shack". At first I had trouble with it because I was trying to figure out how his reason for writing the book matched the plot line. When I stopped doing that and just read the book it started to make a lot more sense to me. I was also able to relate Spiritual things in my own life to Nan's. I loved the name  Nan had for God. In my own life my father was a wonderful man and great father. All 3 of my sisters and I called him Daddy even into our adulthood. Because of this I often refer  to  God as Abba  Daddy. I have a few more thoughts on the book but I do not want to spoil the book for anyone who has not read it yet.

The book I referred to in a previous post is "Finding God in The Shack" by Randal Rauser. Am re-reading The Shack now and would like to follow up with that one.

Michelle,



  If you feel like you are being lead to comment while you are reading it then great, if you want to wait until your finished reading it again thats great to.  This web sight belongs to you ladies what ever your heart leads you to do then feel free to comment at any time I just started it so we would all have some place to come and discuss the books, thats why I have ask for suggestions on reading materials.  I don't want to be a dictator I just want to be able to open a place that woudn't get lost in other threads...

Thisbook changed my life! My prayer life has changed and the way I treat others has changed. I need to read it again just to freshen up on it. How are we doing this? One chapter at a time or the whole book?

Quoting Jennifer:

Great! I haven't yet gotten to read this nor do I have it. But who is this. I remember the book and remember several people talking about it so I wanna make sure I get the right one!

Also how long do you plan on staying on one book????



Jennifer the author is William P. Young and you can get used copies on line at christian book store.com and they are pretty reasonalbe.  As far as how long we are going to discuss it will depend on te book that is choosen.  Like this time even though it's a small book I think that a month will be good so everyone has a chance to get it and really read it!!!

I read this book about a month ago and I loved it. I never did the study at the back though, so maybe I will do that to refresh my memory.

Great book.  I've speed read it and wanted to really study it second time round.  I noticed a guide to The Shack by a pastor in the bookshop yesterday, can't remember the author now.
