This is going to be the first in a few weeks worth of Thursday Book Reviews where I list a book not to read. The Shack is the first book in this list, I’m going to give links to brother Justin Peters, and brother Voodie Bauchmans review of the book.
There’s not much I can add to their wise words, I just felt the need to warn about it. This book is filled with heretical universalism. I would only recommend you read this book if you are interested in learning more about universalism.
I know there are a lot of people who will say that this book is helpful for those that are grieving. Beloved brethren there are better ways to heal a grieving heart than to read heresy. Please don’t be fooled by this book, it is theology, bad theology.
Why is this so important to point out? Because if you put your faith in an idol, a false god you craft after your own image, then you’re dead in your sins. Books like The Shack show the idols created by authors when the sovereignty of God was too much for them. A false god can not save. A god made in your own image can not save. The Shack, and books like it, are leading millions astray.
Beloved, please don’t take this lightly. Is it a light thing to blaspheme the King of kings and the Lord of lords? I pray for you all, always bringing your names before Gods mighty throne, have courage brethren. As always dear ones, be good Berean’s and study to show yourselves approved.
