Product Description

"Mack" Philips took his three children on a family camping trip while his wife visited her sister. Just as they were about to leave the campsite, the two older kids decided to take a last canoe ride before heading home. As their canoe overturned, and Mack went to help them, his back was turned and the unspeakable happened. Mack's youngest daughter,Missy, was abducted by a known child predator. After a massive search, evidence of Missy showed up at an abandoned cabin. Although they never found her body, everyone knew the worst had happened. For the next four years "a great sadness" fell over Mack and his family, until a note from God showed up in his mailbox. What happens next will move you to a greater understanding of God's unfailing love for us all.

Publisher's 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.

ChristianBookPreviews

Eugene Peterson says this book is as good and as important as The Pilgrim’s Progress. Well, it really is not. It is neither as good nor as original a story and it lacks the theological precision of Bunyan’s work. But really, this is a bit of a facile comparison. The Pilgrim’s Progress, after all, is allegory—a story that has a second distinct meaning that is partially hidden behind its literal meaning. The Shack is not meant to be allegory. Nor can The Shack quite be equated with a story like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe where C.S. Lewis simply asked (and answered) this kind of question: “What might Christ become like if there really were a world like Narnia, and He chose to be incarnate and die and rise again in that world as He actually has done in ours?” The Shack is in a different category than these more notable Christian works. It seeks to represent the members of the Trinity as they are (or as they could be) and to suggest through them what they might teach were they to appear to us in a similar situation. There is a sense of attempted or perceived reality in this story that is missing in the others. This story is meant to teach theology that Young really believes to be true. The story is a wrapper for the theology. In theory this is well and good; in practice the book is only as good as its theology. And in this case, the theology just is not good enough.

Because of the sheer volume of error and because of the importance of the doctrines reinvented by the author, I would encourage Christians, and especially young Christians, to decline this invitation to meet with God in The Shack. It is not worth reading for the story and certainly not worth reading for the theology. -- Tim Challies

    This review was written for The Shack.
    LOVED this book! The book has some interesting components to it in regard to how the author portrayes God at times. Some could make these portrayals controversial though I care not to and enjoyed the book as a written art form. The book was written with much thought and will make the reader think as well. I had my 14 year old daughter read it. Though she was alittle resistant to read something her mom suggested to her, it turns out that The Shack is now one of her favorite books! I did not order the Study Guide to the book though I wish I had so my daughter and I could've discussed it in detail. A GREAT book for an adult or teen book club or church group --much opportunity for group discussion/literary analysis. This book will make you laugh and cry. Allows you an opportunity to virtually visit with God and I found myself never wanting to end that visit. Really needs a sequel. Very powerful.

    It's a book that when you start reading you have a hard time putting it down. I hope some day they will make a movie of it. Very Very good book with Gods love.

    I was surprised that i hadn't heard of this book when it came out. However, it came at a good time for me and i've found several friends who wanted to read it. It's a different look at the trinity but the theology and message came through clearly and it kept me reading. The joy of being with God is well presented and acts as a devotional vehicle. It renewed my confidence that He is especially fond of me!
