The Shack

The Shack by  William P. Young

✭✭✭✭ (out of 5 stars)

Mack is lost, suffering the pain from losing his daughter, struggling to find a way to heal his broken heart and family.  One morning he receives a note from God, to meet Him for the weekend at the very place where his daughter was taken from him.  What takes place in most of the book is his journey and the weekend he spent with God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost.  
I found the book thoughtful and at times heart-wrenching, and overall a very interesting read.  Although much of the theology in the book is FAR from my own personal beliefs, I did find it thought provoking.  No matter what you believe personally there are some beautiful thoughts to be taken away from this story...namely God is love, and He is always with us.

Recommended: Yes, if you like spiritual book, or books about religion.
