Heads Up People


Have you heard of The Shack? If not, you need to consider buying a copy immediately. It is a fiction book by William P. Young and has been the most thought provoking and moving christian fiction book I have ever read. It is incredible.


I've read it once, loaned it to my mom and reminded her a million times to bring it back so I could reread it... a little over-eager, perhaps? I read it through, but I want to really read it, really digest it and really learn from it and think about it. I need a highlighter:)


My friend, Doni, has summarized it and blogged on it here . I'm hoping that you will read her post and be intrigued and moved enough to buy the book and read it - I guess I'm thinking, why summarize it and try to persuade you when she has already done such a wonderful job:)


So the heads up is this: I'm going to start rereading it next week after I'm finished withSex God by Rob Bell. And I'm going to blog on it and want you to join me. I want to have a blogging book discussion. I'll take it slowly - but lets read or reread through it together. I want to give you time to buy a copy... They're $15 at B&N or Borders, but I've heard they're $7-$8 at Cosco. Buy one, please!
Is summer a good time for this? Or would school year be better? Please post a comment if you're planning to join in.

Jana-
I think that we (Pastor Jul & Dr. Timmermans from TCC) are going to sponsor the author to come in the spring to do a 1 day conference! How cool! I'll be sure to get you the details when/if it happens.

Count me in - let me know through an email when you are going to do this, please. Also, I say don't just buy one copy but buy two to pass along to others. I am about half way done with Sex. God. very good. And mommy brain, was is the other book because I am looking for a next read! Jana - if she let's you know her new title, please forward it to me:)
