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.

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

Cody2 Stars Out Of 5DANGEROUS WATERSDecember 23, 2016CodyQuality: 4Value: 2Meets Expectations: 2READING 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.

Jms1 Stars Out Of 5Misrepresentation of God!December 4, 2016JmsQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I am a little surprised and frankly disappointed that this book is even sold on Christianbook.com because it clearly teaches universalism which is heresy. I can't however say that I'm surprised that there will be a movie version of the blasphemous book "The Shack" (written by a universalist) coming out soon. It does however concern me that so many Christians will not only read this book blind of its deceptions but will also flock to see the film and never even realize all of the heresies that are in this ridiculous story..The lack of basic theological knowledge among Christians is disheartening and disturbing...and yes theology does matter!
