Product Description

Mack Philips took his children on a camping trip. The boys wanted to squeeze one last canoe ride in before the trip home. Mack rushes to help, when their canoe capsizes. That's when the unspeakable happened! Mack's youngest daughter was abducted by a 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.

Author Bio

Wm. Paul Young was born a Canadian and raised among a Stone Age tribe by his missionary parents in the highlands of former New Guinea. He suffered great loss as a child and young adult and now enjoys the "wastefulness of grace" with his family in the Pacific Northwest.

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 book really made me think about the bible and my faith in a different way. Even if it is a work of fiction and doesn't portray things exactly like the bible it is a great story with a great message. It took me several tries to really get into the book but was able to once I used the audio version. Would love to experience this deep of an immersion to fully deal with the struggles we face. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for something different with a deep desire to dive deeper into faith.

    Even if you don't read the book, go on YouTube and listen to the author himself explain what he means by the things he wrote in his book. When interviewed about The Shack, he said, "The Shack is about theology." That means those who say this is just a story do not understand what Young intended. I have dear friends that adore this book. I can understand that because it is a compelling story. The problem is when made aware of some troublesome and unscriptural elements, will we defend the book? or be Bereans and see whether these things are true or not?

    1. Bottom line, the book teaches universalism, the believe that all people are or will be saved. He believes all people have been redeemed. There is no repentance or faith necessary for salvation.

    2. He has a different view of hell than the Bible. He believes that hell is actually just a restorative process.

    3. The book promotes extra biblical revelation. The letter from Papa (a woman representing the Father) is extra biblical revelation, as well as all the conversations between Mack and the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. If God actually said all these things, then they should be added to the canon of Scripture.

    4. It places words and false theology in the mouth of God. It goes against scripture in so many ways including teaching that the Father was crucified with the son. Papa shows Mack the scars on her wrists.

    5. It promotes feminism. The Jesus of the book said, "the world....would be a much calmer and gentler place if woman ruled.

    6. The author believes God is neither male nor female. This goes entirely against the Scriptures where God is referred to as male, and never female.

    DANGEROUS WATERS

    READING THIS BOOK IS LIKE SAILING A SHIP IN THE BEAUTIFUL CARRIBEAN, IN THE DISTANCE OF A GORGEOUS ISLAND, WITH ROCKS AT EVERY TURN, AND ROUGH SEAS.

    The good: really creative story telling, and good perspectives that challenge us in our way of thinking about relating to God and people.

    The bad: God is not represented accurately. His purpose, his mission, the trinity. Do not look to this book to define your theology. and the logic behind explaining suffering is poor (but that's due to it's aberrant theology).

    I fear this book will lead some to the rocks, and some will be ok navigating the waters. I guess we can appreciate the authors creativity - I particularly don't find an issue with that. and I don't take such a harsh stance against everything he communicated.

    after reading this book - if you do - I recommend reviewing some theological criticisms of the book.

    If you're a new Christian, or have never read the bible, I kindly affirm that you should not read this book, but at some point, I think all Christians should read this book, because it reveals the spiritual pulse of our culture, and we need to understand just what that is.
