Where? At the one event in human history that forever secured your place in the Father's heart - the cross where Jesus allowed sin and shame to be consumed in his own body so that you could freely embrace a relationship with his Father. There you will discover that what he always wanted was not the fearful subservience of slaves, but the loving affection of sons and daughters.

This book helped me gain a healthy understanding of God, and undid so much of the harm done by organised religion over the decades. It started me on a journey of discovery that has been positively life changing.
I hadn't read anything like it before, but now I could recommend. So you don't want to go to church any more, and The Shack. Also check out Jesus Lens, and Transitions series over the web.
This book sets out the basis for a life changing opportunity to enjoy intimacy with God that sets in motion the process of experiencing the promise of the new covenant.
It may take some time to really detox from religion and follow Him, but thank you Wayne for the encouragement.
I have recommended this book to friends and family alike. Maybe others are as sick of the "favor line" and the bondage of trying to be good enough or do enough to be worthy of the Father's approval. Learning of His everlasting Love and unmerited Grace was like a drink from a crystal clear spring. I have listened to the book three times and plan to again. This book will change you!! I cannot recommend the book enough to anyone ready to live loved and liberated from the constraints of legalism and shame!!
The most memorable moment of the book is the scene at the Cross between Father and Son.
My favorite character was the Father.
I had an extreme reaction to this book as I cried and rejoiced at the love and sacrifice of the Godhead for mankind.
By far my favorite book to date!!
"ANOTHER BEST BOOK EVER!!"
YES, by all means. This is THE best book ever on liiving in the LOVE of God. We do not know how to love, but our Lord does and when He loves us we can then pass it on. Wonderful book that I will cherish till Christ RETURNS.
The Shack and So You don't Want to Go to Church anymore. Based on the same theme of love relationship through what Christ did and NOT on what we do or don't do.
I loved it all.
Behold the Savior of the World
Please read or listen to this most important book and with a love for the truth - it will set you free.
"It just wasnt what I expected from the beginning."
I really struggled through this whole book. The audio voices reading the book are very mundane. It is hard to stay with the reader and content when you are a Christian already. There were several times listening to the book that I wondered if I was listening to a book bashing God or not. Not a good read for me.
A book worth reading over and over. God's love is taught well in this book. Highly recommended.
