DescriptionMackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, still trapped in his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack. Against his better judgement he arrives at the shack on a wintery afternoon and faces up to his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack's world forever. In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant, THE SHACK wrestles with the timeless question, 'Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?' The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You'll want everyone you know to read this book!

Reviews for The Shack
I am appalled at how my Lord, God and Holy Spirit are depicted through this book, and how so many "Christians" are lapping it up.
I truly believe this book is blasphemous, I don't know how anyone could see it differently.
It literally made me feel sick.
God is not there to serve us and make us feel good about ourselves.
He is the ALMIGHTY, king of kings, Lord of Lords, maker of the universe.
His glory is so great, that no one can even look upon him.
We are here to serve HIM!
We should not feel comfortable being a sinner, we should always strive to be righteous.
The bible warns us again and again and again about sin, and how God hates sin.
Yes, Jesus died for our sin, so that we may have eternal life, but there are conditions.
We need to accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. We are not automatically saved, and cannot go on sinning, we have to turn from our wicked ways.
What a joke, and so sad that it's leading so many down the easy road.
This book is too "wishy wash" and light hearted about the Holy Trinity, and what it means to be a Christian.
The author is condescending towards God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. by Brenda
When I was given this book (The Shack) to read, I was cynical at first.
Once I finished reading it the first time, it didn't make sense to me.
When I read it the second time, I understood it better
I then read it the third time, this time it made me fall in love with the Lord and crave for His presence at all time.
So I bought two more books to give to other friends!! by Diane Karraz
The Shack by William Young
This book moved me greatly, taking me from tears and anguish to a warmth filled to bursting. I couldn't put it down until I had finished it.
I would advise you read with an open mind about a God who is not constrained by our limited ability to understand all that He is and His amazing and unending love for us. We are made in His image male and female, He reaches out though He needs not, He forgives more than we would and the book is all about that, I very much believe it is inspired by His spirit. by NIKKI
mind blowing book
One of the best book i've ever read in my life. From the first few pages you will just plunge into reading and devour it.... I've read it in 4 days in between work hours and house duty, couldn't put it down. If you do belive in love, then YOU MUST READ IT TOO.

The Shack - Fabulous book
This author hit the point 100%. It protrays our loving God magnificantly, and especially the Trinity. Literalists would miss the point. by Richard
A book about God and relationships, but not the religious kind. All your questions answered with this touching novel...must read!! by Sharon
I wish everyone could read this book. This really lets you see the true nature of God, what a wonderful loving father. For all of you who want to let go of the past and embrace the future read this book and let it transform you. If you've ever struggled to understand the nature of God, this book is for you. by margaret mccarthy
Breaks away the cliches and stereotypes
Many oppose this book, but if you give yourself time to understand it, it is really truthful. It breaks down the cliches and stereotypes of God. To be honest, I hate christian fiction, and I won't kid you, it's not the best written thing in the world. But it got me thinking and questioning and finding answers to problems and working life out. It is good, and it eventually makes sense. It isn't meant to be entertaining. It isn't meant to make you feel good. It's meant to make you ask, "why doesn't God help me?" and "why did God let this happen?" and understand what God's up to in this painful universe. by Lyndel Hadley
Breaking down the barriers
This is what the world needs Right Now.
A totally inclusive look at religion through Lewis Carroll designed glasses.
It opens up the possibilities of forgiveness and healing through love as the only answer.
This is up there with Richard Bachs 'Illusions'.
This surely the kind of message any god or Jesus would have wanted us to take on board, if Mohamed read it I believe he would give it 5 review.
This should be a recommended read for those lost power hungry children who think war is the answer. by Si
Dangerous and false ideas
I made myself read this book to the end, so I could have a true opinion, but honestly I wanted some morphine about half way through, to enable me to finish it. I'm a committed Christian and this book depicts such a sub-Biblical view of God that it made me want to vomit. I am appalled at how popular this book became, but to me that only shows how biblically illiterate many people, including many Christians, are. Apart from the flawed depiction of the three persons in the Godhead, it minimised sin, making it just a few bad choices and wrong attitudes you may have had (tut tut) and it entirely ignored the fact that God is angry about sin. Read your Bible, don't waste your time with the Shack. by Barbara Roberts
