Reviews for The Shack
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 NIKKIunder review
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 Richardunder review
A book about God and relationships, but not the religious kind. All your questions answered with this touching novel...must read!! by Sharonunder review
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 mccarthyunder review
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 Hadleyunder review
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 Siunder review
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 Robertsunder review
Appalling badly written
I saw this book being touted on the Oprah website - not, as I realised later, by the Oprah Book Club, but by people on the comments page - so I bought a copy in audio book. It isn't often that I won't stay with a book but by the time this guy got to the cabin I couldn't have cared less what happened next. It was so cliche ridden and badly written - and, if you ask me, cashing in on successes such as Conversations with God. Don't waste your money. It is drivel. by Jennifer Saundersunder review
