"The Shack" cont.

I am reading more today, I can't seem to put this book down! Here is a great paragraph that explains the nature of the Trinity, found on page 104:

"'You do understand,' she [God] continued, 'that unless I had an object to love - or, more accurately, a someone to love - if I did not have such a relationship within myself, then I would not be capable of love at all? You would have a god who could not love. Or maybe worse, you would have a god who, when he chose, could love only as a limitation of his nature. That kind of god could possibly act without love, and that be a disaster. And that is surely NOT me ... The God who is - the I am who I am - cannot act apart from love!'"
