Mackenzie Allen Phillips's youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation. Evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in the 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 a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

This book is such a deep story of a man's spiritual journey. I found that at times I had to put it down just to digest all that I had read. It really makes you delve into yourself to see where you stand spiritually.

This is such a deep spiritual book that I think is a MUST read. It's amazing, and thought provoking. It made me feel as if I was walking the path of the main character. It's a slice of Heaven on earth!

It scares me to read loose interpretations of the Bible when we, as lay people, aren't really sure that's what was meant at all. It would have been better to simply refer to the Holy Trinity as God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit instead of attaching ridiculous personas to them. I gave it 2 stars because at least it did have me thinking about actual Scripture and the basis of forming loving relationships.

I do not agree with a lot of the author's interpretation of the Bible. I would not recommend this book to anyone.

Best, theodicy why do bad things happen to good people? The Old Testament book of Job spends most of its pages debating the question. In The Shack the opening chapters read like a murder mystery, a detective novel. Crime is one of those bad things that happen. This beginning provides the framework for the author’s conversations with God about theodicy. Important, the nature of the Trinity The Shack calls forth a healthy questioning of our presuppositions about God. The author persistently builds the Biblical and historic understanding of the Trinity over the more shallow expressions of the modern world. This is achieved in a very incarnational picture of God. Even the Holy Spirit has humanlike shape. This approach reflects modernity in which faith is all about the relationship of the individual with God the Trinity. Problem, the church the author writes from the current cultural preference for spirituality over religion. The fictional Jesus tells Mac that he, Jesus, doesn’t do institutions he only does relationships. Personally, as a part of the institution, I think Jesus does do it. This weakness from a church standpoint does not impair the value of the book for theodicy and Trinity.
