Can't share so buying another to share

Such a convicting book and all I have to do is look at book and it all comes back

Very Thought provoking,

I really enjoyed this book (read it twice in one week). It touched on subjects I have been mulling over since accepting Jesus in my life.

A heartbreaking but amazing book

Bought it for my grandma, she loved it, couldn't put it down.

The Shack thrilling adventure

This book took me in and kept me there. A roller coaster ride from beginning to end. Still wondering and considering the possibilities.

A story that's Weird

The story got too weird for me

I gave it my best go

First off, I consider myself spiritual, not religious. I always begin every book I read with an open heart and mind however, I had such a difficult time getting through this one. I even once completely skipped pages for it was too heavy on the "God" for me. I honestly really tried to get through but halfway I ended up giving the book away to a coworker. I appreciate the author's attempt at making their version of God look different than what religions perceive him as which I whole-heartily agree with but I don't think the book was a right fit for me.

Loved this story

Opened my eyes to another perspective. Beautifully told

An absolutely amazing book about faith

I absolutely love this book! An amazing story of faith and gods works!

The shack

I recommen for all to read tears

Astonishing

This was a tragic tale but well worth the sit down.

Touched My Heart

"The Shack" is a book I read slowly to each page. I usually pass my books on. This one means so much to me & I relate to much of it, I must keep it for a while. I constantly recommend it.

Nope, nope

Had to read this for school. Awful. No way I ever want to touch this book again. The author's writing style is very average, teen romance average. The author tried to surprise the audience by making God not only a woman but also black, Jesus is not top model looking, and the Spirit is Asian. Yeah, no, didn't shake me to the core. I had to skip at least 70 pages because I was falling asleep and nothing changed after those pages. NOTHING. God is cooking, Holy spirit is still in the garden, Jesus is doing some other stuff for the house. I hate the ending, because they don't mention the killer anymore. "Is he dead? Is he in jail? What's up?". I hate the whole idea of forgiveness in this book. God makes Mack forgive the killer, Mack says "I forgive you." Forgiveness is when you are no longer angry of the person's actions, you are getting with the tearms of their doing. Guess what? Mack is still angry. Forgiveness is a choice in my opinion, not a must. I also hate the "Missy Project". I was thinking "Is he getting money of the books or setting up some donation to help missing children? If yes, this book is ok with me." BUT NO ITS A WAY FOR THE AUTHOR TO SELL MORE BOOKS. No, thank you. I am out.

This will not save you!

I t is another feel good story.Jesus is not in it,so it will not make the final test!!

My kind of Trinity

The Shack is so well worth reading that I have passed it around to others and have bought more copies. The large print is especially appreciated as many of my friends are visually challenged.

Buena lectura, nada mojigata

Me interesé en este libro debido a que pensé que trataba acerca de la pérdida de un ser querido, pero me encontré con una novela que explica mejor que muchas enciclopedias de teología temas tan importantes como el mal, la trinidad, Dios, etc. El protagonista de esta novela es un padre de familia que pierde a su hija en una terrible tragedia que lo deja amargado e inundado de gran tristeza. De pronto, un día encuentra una carta de «Papá» en su buzón en la que se le invita a pasar un fin de semana en el lugar que más desearía no visitar: el sitio donde perdió a su hija. «Papá» es Dios. El resto de la novela no se los cuento para que no se pierdan la emoción de leer el libro. Lo interesante del relato es que hace reflexionar al lector acerca de temas de mucho interés espiritual: la presencia del mal en el mundo, el papel de Dios en las tragedias, etc. Es realmente sorprendente la manera como en forma novelada se exponen estos temas. No son respuestas que espera la gente religiosa y creo que muchos líderes religiosos no recomendarían su lectura debido a que la religión organizada queda muy mal parada en esta novela. Dios existe pero no se parece en nada a lo que el llamado «cristianismo» ha perfilado tradicionalmente. Escrito por un laico y publicado por una editorial no religiosa, este libro ha sido éxito de librería con más de tres millones de ejemplares vendidos.

Un retrato de quien es Dios- de verdad

Leí este libro cuando salio primero en ingles. La historia comienza un poco lenta donde el autor pone todos los detalles durante los primeros 4 capítulos. Después de esto, no pude dejar de leer el libro hasta terminarlo. Te lleva a un lugar donde puedes tener un encuentro con Dios personalmente. El principio es trágico y triste, nada esta saliendo bien en la vida de Mac. En la cabaña encuentra a la Trinidad en una conversación aparentemente casual. Papa (aquí como una mujer afro americana -representando a el Padre) Sarayu (una mujer de origen asiático que representa al Espíritu Santo) y un hombre de origen Judío ( representa a Jesucristo). Conversan directamente con Mac cuatro años después de la horrible tragedia de haber perdido a su hija pequeña cuando fue raptada y luego encuentran rastros de su muerte. En la cabaña, Mac y la Trinidad tienen una serie de conversaciones tan profundas que toman a Mac por sorpresa. La imagen que el cargaba de Dios resulta ser totalmente contraria a lo que el había aprendido durante toda su vida y le responden a las preguntas mas importantes que cargaba en su pecho por estos últimos 4 años desde la tragedia. Las conversaciones resultan terapéuticas y profundas. Mac se ve obligado a verse hacia adentro de si mismo y como el esta reaccionando a todo. Lee este libro, terminaras con una libertad que no habías visto antes. Conocerás a un Dios mucho mas en paz de como se nos ha sido presentado a lo largo de los siglos en el contexto religioso. No como un Dios que se fastidia con sus criaturas y siempre anda de malas.
