The Shack

It was an awesome Book Club. Cindy thank you, I could barely see you in your gossamer floaty attire!

I was amazed at the depth and breadth of reactions to the story. That is the beauty of this book! So many real and diverse feelings. I think it was one of our longest discussions. Good job Chapter Chatters!

Tip: Start at Video #4 would make sense to read the book first and then listen.
Here is some info on Paul Young. It is a series of You Tube videos. He tells his dramatic life story and what brought him to writing “The Shack” I can't recommend them highly enough. There is no way I could do justice to his biography when facilitating! Also, did anyone else picture Della Reese as Paul Young's "God" and Sayid from "Lost" as the Jesus character?

Della Reese is perfect...when the movie comes out it would be disappointing to see anyone else! As for Jesus - I've never seen lost, but I can't imagine anyone minding a hug from that hunk!

I'm not sure where to add this, but a book I loved and don't believe the group has read (though I could be wrong) is John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany. It was made into a decent movie retitled Simon Birch.

Lisa says "Sayid" is too cute, she pictures the Jesus character as the brown correspondant on the Daily Show.

A Prayer for Owen Meany was one of our First books, and in my top 10 of all time reads. Switching the no arm basketball shooting, to under water swimming was disappointing but kept it a family movie! Go Armadillos!
