Story about Mackenzie's daughter being abducted and murdered - received letter from "papa" to meet at the shack four years later - meets and spends and weekend with Father, Son and Holy Spirit - very thought provoking - more thinking outside of the box rather than inspriational

message 1: by Ray (new) - rated it 3 stars

Ray Young presents a refreshing aspect of God which could heal many who deem Him as an old, insensative, judgmental, mean tyrant with a big stick-divorced from our pain and in some cases, causing it. Despite some awkward sentences and obvious theological loopholes, the work is riveting. I love the message of forgiveness which I believe is a universal problem with most people-save and unsaved alike. It is FICTION- so that covers the many Biblical misinterpretations- and is vastly creative. Young really kicks down our sacred cows in this work. A work of equal value is "A Step Into Deliverance" by Toni Pugh. Its autobiographical content about a pastor's spiritual journey with God is a real page-turner!
