I have linked, in another post, to three previous essays by John Stackhouse concerning the book The Shack. He has posted his fourth essay and I am happy to provide a link back. In this essay Some Celebrations Stackhouse writes of the aspects of the novel that were especially helpful and well done. He wrote:
No, let’s take the experience of reading The Shack the way the book’s protagonist took the experience of visiting it: as a necessarily limited accommodation to his capacities and needs, the thing he needed to receive right then.
This is a fine summary. I am grateful for this series of posts and glad that Jason at Per Crucem ad Lucemprovided the original links to the Professor’s blog. Stackhouse’s review is well-balanced and short enough (in four different posts) that it can be read without feeling overwhelmed.
