Books and Such

The Shack .. this book is a work of fiction and has been controversial among many. I am of the opinion that the book is an excellent way to understand how good God is and how much He loves us. I understand it will soon be made into a movie.

As I am putting this new web site together, I’m trying to decide on the layout, but I don’t want to delay launching this tool any longer.

For now, let me tell you about a little book I recently read. It’s not a big book, but is full of a big ideas.  It’s not even a hard back, but it’s got Hard-Core truth.  It’s a rather simple book with a simple message; the BIG message, the Hard-Core truth is that God loves us.

The little book is about a little boy’s experience in “dying” and going to heaven.  It holds up to scripture very well.  The little book grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let go.  It is well written by the daddy of this little boy.

Do you have kids? Do you know Jesus? Have you ever gotten mad at God? And screamed and yelled at Him?  Have you had a miscarriage? Have you ever been down to your “last nerve”? Have the medical bills piled up and the ‘hard stuff’ just won’t let up?  Have you ever wanted or needed or prayed for or asked for or had a miracle? Have you wondered if God is real? Have you wondered about heaven?

May I suggest this wonderful little book, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL*. It is written by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent.  Todd is a Pastor in the Midwest and it is his little boy about whom this book is written.

I came away from reading this, realizing I wanted to share it with everyone I know.  I actually got my copy at the library. It must be very popular as I put a “hold” on it, and it took more than two months before it got around to me. It should be popular. It could change your life.

  • This delightful story was made into a movie; while the movie was good, it didn’t measure up to the book.
