Description

Mackenzie Allen Phillips's 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, in this midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

    Rubbish. There is no possible reason for this book to have been written and even less reason for it to have been read. Predictably, God could never live in a shack so he and the other two inhabit a lodge. The 'walking on water' is laughable. But the most wretched aspect of this book is the manipulative use of the little girl as the central theme of the story Unforgivable! My advice is to steer clear of this religious claptrap.

    I just finished reading The Shack. This book made me cry, made me hold on to my children tighter, made me look at myself & the judgements that I have chosen to so carelessly make, & in certain parts made me feel....from the moment I began to read it I could not put it down. So I have had a few sleepless nights :-)
  • Beat book ever!

    I love this book and it's message so much that I have read it 3 times so far. I am so sure that I will rad it again that I have bought the e-version for my IPjone i want it handy and close all the time. I have also bought 3 other copies to give to 3 of my friends who are struggling. I pray that it will fill them with peace and joy as it has me. A truly inspired gift to hearts that are open to His love and forgiveness! J.A.C.

    I have read this book 3 years ago and as others have said also thought it was one of the best book I've ever read. No one on this earth can judge the descriptions given to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit by the writer. He has made them so beautiful and so heavenly that it gives us a hope for the afterlife. I have a sister who lost her 20 year old daughter to a horrific murder and I bought and gave her this book 3 years after. She said she also loved it and gave it to her husband for him to read as well. They are still having problems with the lost of their daughter but that this book has given them hope and know that their daughter is in a very beautiful place. God bless.

    I am not Christian, nor am I religious. This book walks me through understanding the bible in ways I've never thought possible. This book changed my life. I believe in a God who does not judge you by the color of your skin nor your status in life. A kind, loving, and forgiving God who does not react with rash judgement, discrimination and anger the way we humans by our nature do. That's what makes him God and us so human. I sense much has changed in me now. This is a God I can believe in. I was raised Buddhist with an open mind to other religion. I struggled with understanding the bible and believing God could exist. The Shack helped me understand more than I ever could from attending church and speaking to ignorant, judging, and discriminating Christians. The Shack has enlightened me deeply and made me a believer of that kind of God. There just may be a God after all!

    My heart and soul have experienced a feeling of true and deep love for The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. The book made me cry tears of pain and tears of joy...joy that can not be expressed by words. Nothing tangible, but something very real..the love that comes from being.
  • BEST BOOK I'VE EVER READ

    Remembering that this is an inspirational work of fiction, I have to say that this is my best read ever and have bought it for two of my friends already. The down-to-earth way that the author brings Christ and hope into a traumatic events is amazing. I struggled with the loss of my own daughter for 4 years before reading this book. This story was the bridge that brought me from the daily fight to move on, to a final, and complete peace. A huge thank you to the friend who initially bought me my first copy.
  • Bordering heretical... actually it is.

    This book is very disrespectful. The Father is a African American women? Jesus is a middle eastern labourer? The same guy who created everything also says "Oops" !?! It's a completely inaccurate representation of God (the one of the Bible at least) and is an insult.
