Love & recommend it. Truly a great new perspective.
I struggled for years with the loss of my father. I still do. But when I read this book, my heart was opened to a whole new light on the loss I had suffered. I could not give a higher rating to any other book.
Young challenged me to let go. Yes, let go. We cannot try to hold on to the ones we love forever, especially once they have passed. We also can not allow our hearts to blame ourselves.
He brings a unique version of the Trinity into view. The shack once being a place of horror, becoming a place to truly grasp what we’ve lost. By grasping on to the new light, we have to allow ourselves to move on.
No matter how hard the loss, there is new life in that loss, new lessons that are to be learned. And most of all the understanding that God is not punishing us. He is not trying to get us back, He simply has a bigger plan for all of us. Young understands that life comes with loss, and asks all of us to reconsider how we also look at our losses.
