Would not recommend unless you want a course in theology.
I was excited with Paul Young's explanation of the trilogy, because for the first time it made since to people who had a difficult time understanding it. Then I read C. Baxter Kruger's book and it put it right back into the dump of despair for anyone who was confused to begin with, except I think it might have added a little to that already confused state.
I don't believe that I need to belabor the point much longer, needless to add I would not recommend that you waste your hard earned dollars on this book unless you need something to help you sleep at night or are reeeallllly into theology, a lot of repeating of Paul Young's book, which I'm sure you've already read and could just read again and someone else's interpretation of the Bible.

I loved The Shack.Have read it 3-4 times, took it as a class in one church and taught it as a class in another. The Shack gave me more insight into the nature of the Trinity than anything else I've read, learned, or experienced. So when I saw the prepublication reviews on Kruger's book, I knew I had to have it. It's different from The Shack, which is a novel. Kruger's book is nonfiction and takes a look at the concepts that Young presents in The Shack from the point of view of a theologian. It's deep, but not difficult. A little slower read, because you want to stop and let his points sink in. Young himself has said that this is the best book written about The Shack. I have read several books about it, and learned something from all of them, but this is by far the best. You will need to read The Shack before delving into this book, or you will not know what he's talking about.
