FEATUREBOOKMARKThe Shackby Wm Paul YoungIf you are looking for a good read I canrecommend The Shack by Wm PaulYoung. A good friend recently lent methis book saying she would beinterested in my comments on it.Although a church-goer herself she isnot a Catholic and we often havespirited discussions about faith, Godand all things religious.The Shack is a novel, but a novel with atwist. Its main character, Mack, is livingthrough a personal tragedy which herefers to as ‘The Great Sadness’ andwhich has affected his life and thosearound him to an immeasurable degree.An invitation to meet with God at thescene of the tragedy changes his lifeforever.Jacky Chong (pictured)suggests a good readMack asks God, in the form of theTrinity, some of those awkward questionsyou or I would ask, given theopportunity. He rants at Him about theinjustice in life, ‘You may not causethese things, but you certainly don’t stopthem’. He is chided by God, ‘Mack, foryou to forgive this man is for you torelease him to me and allow me toredeem him.’The relationships between Mack, God theFather, Jesus and the Holy Spirit are alesson to us all and are sometimes anuncomfortable insight into how werelate to one another, and to God. Mackis a champion for us all, his sadness andanger allow him to put into words thequestions we often think but rarelyvoice. The answers he gets are the oneswe know in our hearts, but forget orignore in our busy lives as we rush andbustle about.This book really is a little gem and amust for every bookshelf. I have alreadyordered my own personal copy as theone I was lent needs to be returned andI know I shall want to read it again, andagain, and again!Wm Paul Young was born a Canadian and raised among a stone-age tribe byhis missionary parents in the highlands of what was New Guinea. He sufferedgreat loss as a child and young adult, and now enjoys the ‘wastefulness ofgrace’ with his family in the Pacific Northwest.
