‘the Shack’ Book Review September 26, 2012

Title: the Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Reality
Author: William P. Young
Date I Finished Reading: August 11,2012
My Rating: 5/5

This is not your typical fiction. This is amazing. I have never seen tragedy, mystery,emotion and theology wrapped together so well. Two years after his daughter’s disappearance Mack gets a note, supposedly from God inviting him back to the spot the only evidence of the crime was found. He goes. What unfolds is amazing. The story makes you view God in a new light and also answers the question “How can a loving God allow tragedy?”. Although language is used on a few occasion, I highly recommend this amazing, heart-touching book.

    I have to disagree with you on this book. I think it spreads an unrealistic view of God and who He is.

      I agree with that to a point… I do not believe each of Young’s points are correct, but I believe it encourages us to see God in ways that we otherwise would not…ya know what I mean? It reminds us of his genuine love, and that we dont know as much about him as we sometimes think we do…

        Honestly, this book grated against the Holy Spirit within me. If you found something of value, then perhaps God opened your perspective to something different than my own. I simply couldn’t accept the concept of God as a big black woman, an Eastern woman, and Jesus out back cutting wood. There are too many people who don’t know the Word of God that would take a book like this seriously. I think it encourages deception. But that is my opinion. Thank you for your willingness to post my opinion, even if it is different than your own. God bless!
