Mackenzie Allen Phillips' 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 the 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 a wintry afternoon and walks back into 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.

This book, while starting slow, really gets your attention and I found myself in tears at various parts of it because it is so, so moving! I highly recommend it to everyone!

Fascinating & Intriguing :)
Tackles the tough questions about suffering & where is God in the midst of horrible experiences in our lives & the world. Very provocative & insightful. It will test your view of God & inspire you to change how you think about God. Definitely worth reading or listening to (audio version).. Enjoy :)

While I found the death of Missy disturbing and unfair, I could identify with several of the emotions her father felt as he worked through the aftermath. I found that this book tackled questions that many have asked and provided satisfactory answers. I especially enjoyed the audiobook version, both for the character voices and the additional info at the end.

One man's attempt to describe God with his imagination. I did not expect him to come close but he still failed miserably. At time his description was weird and offensive.

I bought and read the book about 2 years ago. I wanted to read it again but had given my copy to a friend. I decided to try the audio book instead. I loved it! The voice of Roger Mueller adds so much to the story. At the end, the author (who also has a great voice) gives his reasons for writing the book and explains how it came to be published, among other revelations. His information is a fascinating supplement to the story. I recommend The Shack to those who believe in God and those who do not. I also recommend it to people who have endured hardship in their lives. It may give you some hope. Despite the fact that the story is sad, I came away from it with a feeling of redemption, peace and hope. I give this story a 5 star rating!

Good book. Causes you to look at God from a whole new perspective. I enjoyed it. 8 of 10 for me.

I have listen to this book and have read it. It can be a life changing book on the understanding of how God, the Father, God the Son and God, the Holy Spirit loves us intimately. It is a story of a father and his interaction with the Trinity when is dealing the the murder of his child by a serial killer.
