We'll see. Thanks.

That being said, my Wife assures me that the outcome and the religious concepts and questions tackled, help carry you through.
The praise from those who've read it have tempted me.
Who knows?
I also just finished The Shack. Just my opinion but I did not like it at all. I am not super religious, but I do go to church sporadically and believe in God, the book started well, but I found it to be quite boring and OTT. Almost like Ned Flanders had authored it...... Just my two cents......

I've read that one too. It's pretty good, a lot different from Albom's first book "Tuesday's with Morrie" which is also decent.

Reading a journal my father-in-law filled out for me, about his life from childhood to now. He was brought up in a Greek household (as he, himself, is Greek.. as is my wife), and has been a very successful venture capitalist for many decades now. Very entertaining, enlightening read. If you remember, it trumped all the expensive garments/gizmos I got at Christmas as "my favorite gift".

Listening to Sidney Poitier's "The Measure of a Man" on audiobook.. read by him. He really has quite the love of both life and family. Very entertaining, and very well-written/well-read.
