Millions have found their spiritual hunger satisfied by William P. Young’s #1 New York Times bestseller, The Shack–the story of a man lifted from the depths of despair through his life-altering encounter with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. Now C. Baxter Kruger’s THE SHACK REVISITED guides readers into a deeper understanding of these three persons to help readers have a more profound connection with the core message of The Shack–that God is love.
An early fan of The Shack and a close friend to its author, Kruger shows why the novel has been enthusiastically embraced by so many Christians worldwide. In the words of William P. Young from the foreword to THE SHACK REVISITED, “Baxter Kruger will stun readers with his unique cross of intellectual brilliance and creative genius as he takes them deeper into the wonder, worship, and possibility that is the world of The Shack.”
I must first preface my review by saying that when I read “The Shack”, I saw it as a good piece of fiction, but I did not see it as a major spiritual awakening for me. I could see where some people might identify with the main character who was experiencing his own spiritual transformation. I appreciated it for the fiction that it is and personally I think that evaluating it even further takes from the original text. Ok, with that being said, the was a good reflection on the topics presented in the original text. The author of this book takes a thorough examination of the Trinity as presented in the earlier text. It gives new meaning to the original concepts and makes us think further into the being of God. I do agree that this author did an almost complete examination of the Trinity. I say almost, as we all are not perfect in our thoughts of God. As the Bible tells us, “Our way are not His ways and our thoughts are not His thoughts.” If you enjoyed reading The Shack and want to explore the thoughts presented more in depth, then this would be a good book for you to read and study.
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book for review from the publisher. I was not obligated to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are my own.
