” ‘The Shack’ is about redemption from tragedy and how God can heal and transform our lives even in our deepest, darkest moments. It is a story about how a man who had a traumatic upbringing with his alcoholic father, ran away from God and ran even further when he experienced a family tragedy as an adult that sent him into a deep depression and crisis of faith, but had a personal encounter with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit that helped him to understand and heal from his tragedy to experience a renewed love of life and stronger faith. This book wrestles with the ever prevailing questions, “Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?” and “Why does God let bad things happen to good people?”.
‘The Shack’ is a recommended read for people who have experienced tragedy and are stuck in unforgiveness of others and of self. It is also recommended for those who are having doubts about faith/God or questions about a relationship with God, and would like to find a way to understand Him and Christianity better.”
