Five must reads about faith and spirituality

the-shackWe asked, you answered. Here are our nurse panel’s top picks for books that are “un-put-downable,” calming and uplifting.

Your Top Pick

The Shack by William P. Young, first recommended to us by April Chandler, RN, of Seymour, Tenn.

“Four years after a man’s youngest daughter disappears on a family vacation, he receives a mysterious note (from God?) beckoning him to return to the place where she was abducted.”

In this “guy meets God” novel, author William P. Young puts the reader in touch with God’s love and grace.

Other great novels about faith and spirituality:

Leota’s Garden by Francine Rivers
This Side of Heaven by Karen Kingsbury
Thorn in My Heart (Lowlands of Scotland Series #1) by Liz Curtis Higgs
The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis

    LOVED LOVED LOVED The Shack. Great recommendation!

  2. I absolutely loved The Shack, and I don’t say that often about books. The funny thing is, when I told a few acquaintances how much I liked it, they were so vehemently against the book. They hated it. Honestly, I can’t figure out why.

    I mean, the book definitely doesn’t appeal to everyone, but it makes you think. Or at least, it made me think.

    The Shack is one of the best books I’ve ever read, and I read a lot!! The first part is a liitle uncomfortable, but once you get passed that it’s a wonderful read on faith and just realizing that God is ever present with us!!!!
