It’s been on the “Best Seller” list for the New York times now for weeks. It’s forbidden to be read by Mark Driscoll (my fundy-hero). It’s a modern-day “Pilgrim’s Progress” …
What do you think about it? Have you heard about it? I’m interested to get some feedback on it. Read the USA Today article. If you’re dealing with Christianity, you’ll be asked about it, I’ll bet.
All the controversy is caused by this crazy little book, “The Shack”, where God is depicted as a black woman, and according to Christianity Today it poses a “Modalist View” of the Trinity (Modalism views the Trinity as one person who takes three different “forms” or “modes”, and it was denounced as heresy at Nicene and other church councils.)
Says Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church in Seattle: “If you haven’t read The Shack, don’t!” According to USA Today:
Driscoll, whose multi-campus non-denominational church is packed with 6,000 people each weekend in the least-churched corner of the nation, says he is “horrified” by Young’s book. He says “it misrepresents God. Young misses the big E on the eye chart.” – USA Today article.
Anyone come across other reviews about the book? Let me know!
