It seems that many of the critics of The Shack misunderstand the genre of Young's work. Hicks spends time developing this concept as he discusses Young's motives, as well as Young's background and history. As Hicks points out, Young is not attempting systematic theology, but rather "an extended modern parable." With this in mind, we can set out to read the book for what it is: parabolic theology that might very well lead the reader down a path of introspection, and also closer to God.
The Shack invites the reader to be very real, and genuine: to go to places that are deep, dark, and hidden. Hicks takes that invitation a step further and more fully develops some very key elements of Young's book (e.g., Hicks' discussions on the Triune shine, gardening with God, and the Trinity). It appears obvious that Young has endured much suffering and sadness, and perhaps this is why Hicks is able to do so much with Young's work, for he too has experienced great pain, suffering, and setbacks. There is something about Hicks that is very real; he is able to empathize, and thus elaborate in ways that many cannot.
For me, The Shack was painful, yet liberating. Hicks' book was more of the same, for which I am appreciative.
