Certainly the subject matter can be dry at best but the writing came across as more of a intellectual perspective.
Interesting enough; through listening to this book it soon became obvious that David Allen's book on
Dry and examples were drawn out.
No doubt, Brother Ty (Stock Broker)
He did a wonderful job in slipping into each character.
That an organization is an organization (Church) is an organization and ultimately run by people who can be inclined to look to shortcuts.
Absolutely entertaining and the message about living right is so subtle in terms of being a spiritual that it could be geared toward the fundamentals of organization management.
Excellent job of capturing the glitz, glamour and seedy side (mob inter-twining) of Hollywood during its embryonic period, along with a backdrop of the police culture of the time.
Perhaps understanding the
1st listening and will look to other books.
Probably not one particular moment but the book caught and maintained my interest from the beginning to the end.
Fortunately or perhaps fortuitously, I picked up the book without little or no regard for the spiritual aspect that I would be taken and much in the manner of Mac, the main character. You see, I am a retired homicide investigator and vaguely recall hearing of a serial murder case involving kidnappings and murders out of the US Park Properties which intrigued me.
The rest is history and without original motivation, The Shack took me on a spiritual journey that I could have never imagined.
It's occurred to me a number of times that those of faith trying to point non-believers to the beauty of accepting Christ could be better served in using The Shack as a non-religious or intimidating means of opening the doors to the possibilities. Like the author had hoped, this booked being marketed or directed through non traditional religious markets was it's success.
