Moved to tears

When was the last time you were moved to tears by something beautiful?

Today’s prompt from the Daily Post: Moved to Tears

Most people associate tears with sadness.  When I shed tears it is more often for the happy ending of a book, than for something sad.

One book in particular, which left me in tears was The Shack by William P. Young.

This is a controversial book.  It does not provoke the same reactions in every reader.  Does any book?

Starting with one of the worst scenarios, which could happen to a parent, this book goes on to explore the nature of God.  I found it sensitive and fascinating.

Other books have followed on from it – The shack revisited explores the theology of The Shack and the author of The Shack has a new book out Cross Roads, which I have yet to read.
