Chris Chris said: " Due to being a crazy person working three jobs and the general insanity of the holidays, I am way behind on my book reviews so now I'm stuck playing catch-up. That being said, I finished reading this about a month ago so I'm fuzzy on the details but ...more "

I wish there was a 2.5 star option. It's not like the book was horrible, but it wasn't especially memorable either. It contributes a bit to the Divergent world, but only in snippets, certainly not enough to justify this entire other book. The reason ...more

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

Alan Rickman
“When I'm 80 years old and sitting in my rocking chair, I'll be reading Harry Potter. And my family will say to me, 'After all this time?' And I will say, 'Always.”
Alan Rickman

Wm. Paul Young
“You don't play a game or color a picture with a child to show your superiority. Rather, you choose to limit yourself so as to facilitate and honor that relationship.”
Wm. Paul Young, The Shack

C.S. Lewis
“Let's pray that the human race never escapes Earth to spread its iniquity elsewhere.”
C.S. Lewis

Wm. Paul Young
“...humans are not defined by their limitations, but by the intentions that I have for them; not by what they seem to be, but by everything it means to be created in my image.”
Wm. Paul Young, The Shack
