"For those of us who are longing to 'live loved,' I cannot recommend a better follow-up to The Shack than this book. It is an exploration and adventure into the heart of the God we hoped was truly there, and who loves each of us in particular with an everlasting love."―Wm. Paul Young, Author of The Shack

For the last several years, I have been on a journey of discovering the love of God as my heavenly Parent after 20+ years of traditional teachings from a traditional evangelical denomination. Mostly on my own, I embarked on a journey that has helped me discover more and more of the unfathomable love of God as our Father in heaven.
After reading this book, I realize that the author has been on a similar journey, making similar discoveries. It was gratifying to see the author explaining how much God is our Parent and not our Judge.
The author could have dealt a bit more with why Jesus has to die on the cross. It is a difficult subject but I would have loved to see his view.
I'm sorry it has taken this long for him to come to my attention. Through the influence of "The Shack" and another book that Wayne co-wrote, "So You Don't Want to Go to Church Anymore?", Wayne has had a profound influence in my thinking and views toward God and the Church. More importantly, in this book, Wayne does an excellent job of demonstrating the roots of those previous works in Scripture and practical theology in terms of the person of God and how He wants to relate to us.
Christianity is rife with lip service as to the importance of Grace in underlying the foundation of a personal walk with God. In practice however, many Churches and Christians of all ilks and persuasions quickly move past that lip service into forms of legalism and phariseeism that make it clear that if Grace is the foundation of the beginning of a walk with Christ, it certainly has little to do with what comes after. Guilt, shame, manipulation and coercion quickly raise their heads and become the motivator for far too many of us.
William Young, the author of "The Shack" recommends this book on the back cover as the best book he can suggest for those who have read "The Shack" to help everything begin to make sense. I can recommend no better than that myself.
This is a deeply freeing book to read, to grasp but more importantly to begin to live the concepts present.
I highly recommend it and will return to it myself many times.

The message "He Loves Me" is so needed - the only problem I have with the book is that I never have enough copies and have to keep re-ordering. Ed M.
The biggest impact this book had on me was leading me to realize that if I never, ever do another "should" in my life, God's love for me won't change.
Awesome teaching and a great read that you will want to refer to and pass along to others!
