Obsession with words
Obsession with words rated it 6 months ago
I read this book several years ago but I couldn't remember much about it. I came across another copy so I read it again. I remember hearing other people talk about it and it seemed there were three camps. There are those that loved it, those that hated it, and those were afraid to say what they thou...

This is about a man who spends some time with God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. I think many, many people with love it. For me, I struggled often because I felt like it was a really long Sunday School lesson sometimes. Other times, I got into what was happening quite a bit, but it was maybe too dee...

"If anything matters, then every thing matters". The author said that line twice within the book. The first time he said it, I did not know what he meant.

Read in 2011 (from August 8 to 22) It's kinda hard to rate this book. I liked it when I read it for the firs time but there are a lot of flaws in contrast to the nice message the book sends. The message is religious, it calls for belief in God but it is also a little pathetic and cheesy. The st...

Mack, a man whose daughter had been kidnapped and murdered, receives a letter in his mailbox inviting him to spend a weekend at the very shack where his world fell apart four years earlier. It is at that very shack where Mack comes face to face with God and learns to heal.

First and foremost, I have to say that I really enjoyed reading this book. Obviously we all have our own beliefs about God, so some of the ideas may hit us each differently. Did I agree with the way every idea and assumption about God was presented? No, but I also found some new insights and did app...

While the message is good, at times it felt a bit chessey. Overall though, the message makes up for the negatives.
