I'm not sure of the theological "correctness" of Young's novel nor of it's potential to win awards based on it's English and grammar, but it's a book that captures ones imagination, you find yourself dwelling on it long after you've closed the cover. It's a book that leaves you longing for that day when we can see God face to face, and run into the arms of Jesus. It's a book that leaves you smiling: smiling at the quirkiness yet grace and wisdom of "Papa", smiling at Jesus, the God-man, brilliantly human and inexplicably God at the same time, and smiling at the shimmery, incomprehensible pictures of Sarayu. While the three of them are depicted as separate persons, it's obvious to see where they overlap, how they're intertwined, they're so intimately each other and the same. It's impossible to split them.
Like Mack, I too felt like I wanted an emotional scene where he says goodbye to Papa, yet Young's words struck me and rung unashamedly true..
"He hadn't had the chance to say goodbye, but as he thought about it, saying goodbye to God did seem a little silly."
And as we too think about it, perhaps saying goodbye to God is a little silly, He is everywhere after all. This book reminded me of that.
Yes, I am especially fond of this book.
