I don’t care who you are (or what you think of The Shack)…this is funny:
Apparently, Christian bookstores want you to buy The Shack, but they don’t want you to “buy” The Shack, if you know what I mean. You know, like, please only “buy” it in the give-me-some-money sense.
The book comes with a disclaimer, in the stores, you’re supposed to get at check-out: “Read this book with extra discernment.”
I think that’s cool. Hard to be against extra discernment. Especially when the “author may have espoused thoughts, ideas, or concepts that could be considered inconsistent with historical evangelical theology.”
“May”, “thoughts”, “could be considered”…by somebody…somewhere. “Historical evangelical theology”…dating back, literally, tens of years.
You should read the rest of this over at Letters From Kamp Krusty…funny stuff.
