The Shack Book Summary

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

The Shack - William P. Young Reviews

  • This book has a horrible vision of a cruel deity

    By drdreric
    The book centers around a very young girl murdered by a psychiatric serial killer. One of the Trinity assures the father that throughout her literally tortuous and fatal ordeal the little girl knew her deity was "with" her. In this book God is truly omnipotent and omniscient. What kind of sadistic deity, who had the power to render the doomed girl unconscious, and thus keep her from suffering when she is doomed to die, neglects to do that? The horrible suffering of the 6 year old girl does nothing but please her killer. It fulfills no divine plan, it gives the victim no benefit. As a father who has endured the loss of a daughter, I found this book stomach churning in its insensitivity. Don't waste your time or money. If you have lost a child, avoid it like the plague.

  • An Abomination

    By Kraznov7
    I would give a lower rating if it were possible. This is truly an abomination for true, serious Christians. There are at least a dozen heresies in this book that are against clear biblical Christian beliefs. Thus those who support this book are not filled with the Holy Spirit and are devoid of discernment.
  • Personal Challenge

    By Jazzi's mom
    I read this book as a personal challenge because 2 Christian acquaintances hated it and 2 also Christian loved it! I did not ask anyone why until I read it myself! One could not get past the presentation of God as female and she said that ruined the whole story for her. One had a child who was murdered and she found peace, comfort and answers in this story. I myself lost a son in a car/train wreck on his 17th birthday. I too found comfort and peace and the reminder that my son was never alone! God never left him! I was shocked at first by the female God but that did not ruin it for me! I can't wait to purchase the movie when it comes out on DVD!
  • Repetitious for most of the book

    By Millybo
    Started out with an interesting story and character. Most of the book is Mack talking with the Trinity. Found this part dull and repetitive. Wouldn't buy again. Read the Bible to find out about the Trinity not a fictional book.
  • Thee 2nd Best Inspirational Book I've Ever Read.

    By mrmayhill
    The Bible (KJV) is Thee Number 1 and then comes The Shack. If you want to be able to vision GOD, JESUS, and The HOLY SPIRIT in a down to earth and reachable light, then you should read The Shack. GOD Bless you all, Margie
  • Life changing novel

    By Aauper
    Words cannot describe the feelings this book gave me (good ones of course). I will never forget the impact it has made on my life. As a Christian, this really puts the relationship that we are to have with God in to perspective. I had no idea how miserably that I was failing in growing my relationship with Christ.

  • The Shack!!!

    By Alishalee89
    God has used this book to change my life. If you're in a place where you need reconciliation or if your perception on life is negative and dark, READ THIS BOOK.. I pray that it helps change your life as it has mine...
