A fiction. A story of a man who had personal encounter with God.
I wish they would make a movie based on the book.
This book will bring you to the basic point of knowing who God is, His power,and His personality.
It sends a great message like what an unconditional love is all about, what a forgiving means and benefits you, the colors of friendship, answering the life questions such as "Where is God when shitty things turn to be "The Great Sadness" happened?".
You'll be mesmerized of how sincerely incredible God sees us. He knows us by our names. I loved this book and I've been telling others to read it. I found it very moving and know many people whose lives have been transformed for the better by reading "The Shack".This is probably the most profound and best book I've ever read in my entire life. It has brought me totally back to God. I completely identified with Mack and the Great Sadness which has been in my life also.
Here's the review:
Mackenzie Allen Philips' 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 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 Mack's world forever. In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant "The Shack" wrestles with the timeless question, "Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?" The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You'll want everyone you know to read this book!
