I finished a book yesterday that was quite compelling, to say the least. Perhaps you've read it...The Shack. Has anyone else read it? After reading the back cover and seeing that it was about a little girl that was kidnapped and murdered, I said "this book is NOT for me!"
Well, a good friend of mine convinced me to read it and I'm glad I did. The bulk of the story is about the father's spiritual trip toward recovering from losing his little girl. The little girl herself plays a part in her father's recovery, as does God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit, only in "human" form, so to speak. It's very very deep and quite moving, but worth reading. So if you're like me, unwilling to read stories of this kind, give this book a try.
Just out of curiosity, how do you choose a book? Is it by the author, the genre, the colors on the cover? I admit, there are times that I use the colors or the picture on the cover!
Happy Friday everyone…and enjoy your weekend.
