1.0 out of 5 stars Don't worry...be happy!, December 30, 2009
Love it or hate it...this book elicits an extreme reaction...no doubt about it. There are almost 4000 reviews of The Shack on amazon.com. By far and away most readers rave about it and give it 5 stars. Count me among the small minority who give it 1 reluctant star.

Many times I felt like screaming, "Get on with it man!" The narrative style, if you can call it that, is Tedious and awkward. The opening scene of Mack's walk to the mailbox is a perfect example, and, unfortunately, there are many, many others. It was only because the book was a gift from relatives who praised it that i persisted to the end. For me, "The Great Sadness" became having to finish this book. Indeed, there is so much weeping and sappy, overwrought language it nearly becomes a parody.

Annoyingly bad writing aside, it is, of course, the content that matters. Here is where I really part company with the positive reviewers. The author bows at the altar of contemporary political correctness and presents the God of all creation as "a large black woman" who giggles and bakes scones. He then has the profound (?) insight, "Why had he naturally assumed that God would be white?" Maybe it's just me, but I never think of GOD as having any gender, color or form...more like an entity completely and utterly beyond human comprehension.

The book also engages in considerable male-bashing...unfortunately so prevalent in contemporary culture. Mack ponders, "Males seem to be the cause of so much of the pain in the world. They account for most of the crimes. And many of those are perpetrated against women, and - he paused [dramatically], children." (In fact, crime statistics show that, by far, most children who are murdered by a parent are killed by their mothers. Hundreds of recent studies also prove that domestic violence is just as likely to be initiated by the female partner as the male.) Then "Jesus" - after skipping a stone across a pond - concurs, stating, "The world in many ways would be a much calmer and gentler place if women ruled. There would have been far fewer children sacrificed to the gods of greed and power." Oh please, grow up! This blatant gender bias is insulting and ignorant.

In humanizing the Trinity, the author trivializes and politicizes a profound mystery. This is an offensive and grotesque dumbing down of Christian theology. The theme of this book could be summarized as "Don't worry, be happy" theology. God does not expect anything of us...there are no rules. On page 205 (paperback edition) we read, "In Jesus you are not under any law. All things are lawful." God is a hippy anarchist! Who knew? Later, on the same page, Mack responds, "Are you telling me that responsibility and expectation are just another form of rules that we are no longer under? Did I hear you right? 'Yup', Papa affirmed." Later (page 208), just in case you did not get it the first time, Sarayu (the Holy Spirit) tells Mack, "Responsibilities and expectations are the basis of guilt and shame and judgment." Then Papa adds, "Honey, I've never placed an expectation on you or anybody else...And, beyond that, because I have no expectations, you never disappoint me." If it feels good do it! No wonder this book is so popular.

The Shack is truly vacuous and shallow stuff. If you really want to understand more about the nature of evil in the world and man's relationship to God, try reading C.S. Lewis's "Mere Christianity" or Thomas Aquinas or, maybe, as many other reviewers have suggested, the Bible itself.

4.0 out of 5 stars rugged, cool watch, November 18, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
When I saw the cool red color of this watch i had to buy it...everyone should have at least one watch that is unique and stands out from the dreary black/white world of normal everyday watches...these G-Shock Casios (I have a few) are so rugged, extremely well built and reliable they will probably outlive us all. The only reason this gets 4 stars from me instead of 5 is that the initial set up is somewhat complicated and time consuming...whatever you do, DO NOT LOSE THE OWNER'S MANUAL!...you will need it!
