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!Read Less

A bit unusual
Might now re-read this; but at the time I finished this book, I thought it the best ever read!--because it encapsulated the humanness of Jesus, the rollicking love of Papa, and the wisdom and spirituality of the ethereal spirit. It lifted me.

Whatever genre you think this book belongs to, it is all of that and more. I enjoyed the book from a religious perspective. Our creator is always within arm's reach and patiently waits for us to reach out to grab those strong gentle arms. In this story, the arms take on a different perspective.
