Less than a week ago, I began a journey. It was a journey to listen to the audio version of “The Shack.” Months ago I purchased the audiobook in iTunes. It had been recommended to me enough that I figured I better give it a read/listen. I had started it a few times, but never managed to finish. It did grab my attention, but I wasn’t ready for the journey.
Last Wednesday evening, I was challenged to read it again. I mean really read it. It was a clear enough of a challenge that I decided to dive in and finally finish. I committed to the “task.” I can honestly say that every free moment during the last few days, I have listened. Not once did I want to push pause. I cringed a few times when phone calls interrupted my journey. I have also replayed certain portions. I even fell asleep at night a few times enjoying the story only to try to remember where I left off.
I am writing this post today to highly recommend a reading or listen of “The Shack.” Whether you are a committed Christ follower or a desperately seeking person, this book will serve you well. Listen. Read. Both will be incredibly engaging. I promise!
It will require a second listen/read before I share my take of “The Shack” on this blog. Know this, the first listen was life-changing for me!
