Great book. Wonderful series but very surprising conclusion. Was not expecting that at all. Still recovering from that ending. Excited to see what Roth does next. Always loved the Divergent books way more than THG.

John Green

John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Joyce Carol Oates
“I never change, I simply become more myself.”
Joyce Carol Oates, Solstice

Wm. Paul Young
“Remember, the people who know me are the ones who are free to live and love without any agenda."

Is that what it means to be a Christian?" It sounded kind of stupid as Mack said it, but it was how he was trying to sum everything up in his mind.

Who said anything about being a Christian? I'm not a Christian."

The idea struck Mack as odd and unexpected and he couldn't keep himself from grinning. "No, I suppose you aren't."

They arrived at the door of the workshop. Again Jesus stopped. "Those who love me come from every system that exists. They were Buddhists or Mormons, Baptists or Muslim, Democrats, Republicans, and many who don't vote or are not part of any Sunday morning religious institutions. I have followers who were murderers and many who were self-righteous. Some were bankers and bookies, Americans and Iraquis, Jews and Palistinians. I have no desire to make them Christian, but I do want to join them in their transformation into sons and daughters of my Papa, into my brothers and sisters, into my Beloved."

Does that mean," asked Mack, "that all roads will lead to you?"

Not at all," smiled Jesus as he reached for the door handle to the shop. "Most roads don't lead anywhere. What it does mean is that I will travel any road to find you.”
Wm. Paul Young, The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity
