I read The Shack years ago, literally. I can't remember exactly how I heard about it but I ordered it from an obscure website and I was told it was being shipped from someone's "garage" to me. At first I didn't know what to think but the website (later I discovered it was a friend of Paul's who posted it) promoted the book as something "fresh" and enlightening with new perspectives on life, God and spirituality. So, I ordered it. Fast forward to a few days ago when FINALLY I had the opportunity to hear Paul speak live @ Trinity College (where I teach one class as an Adjunct). There were many things about the talk that were moving, encouraging and challenging….even so, THIS STORY that I am embedding in this post is worth every minute of your time. I'm not going to say any more about it with the exeption that there wasn't many dry eyes after its telling…enjoy!
