Boorish Prose with a silly message

What a waste of two hours.

The Shack is a book for people to read, that don't know God.

People that don't know God, or have had life changing experiences need to read this book. It may be fiction, but there is so much that is real in the book. I own the book and have read it 3 times now. I will read it again. The movie does not do the book justice. But it was good. It was heartbreaking and it made me look at life so different. I am a Christian, and believe that this book was an awesome book. Amen to the Author.

Inspiring and Enlightening

I loved this book so much. It definitely put some things into an easier-to-understand way that really had me thinking about myself and my own relationship with God. I would recommend this for any believer, and also for those who are struggling with their faith for whatever reason, as I have done in the past.

Great book to start you thinking.

Ordered this for a friend and one for myself but ordered the wrong one for myself. Love the book and am now ordering the right one for myself. It gets you thinking about how you view the triune God and your relationship with him.

Horrible book

This is a total mockery and if you love mocking God then you will love this perverted book

The Shack is a must read.

This book will make you reflect. It's a work of fiction but it draws you in like a real current event.

Great read

I could not put this book down. I read this book faster than ive ever read before! Great story of over coming personal hardships.

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!

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.

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.
