When the imagination of a writer and the passion of a theologian cross-fertilize the result is a novel on the order of "The Shack." This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" did for his. It's that good! --Eugene Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.
Finally! A guy-meets-God Novel that has literary integrity and spiritual daring. "The Shack" cuts through the cliches of both religion and bad writing to reveal something compelling and beautiful about life's integral dance with the Divine. This story reads like a prayer--like the best kind of prayer, filled with sweat and wonder and transparency and surprise. When I read it, I felt like I was fellowshipping with God. If you read one work of fiction this year, let this be it. --Mike Morrell, zoecarnate.com
"The Shack" is a one of a kind invitation to journey to the very heart of God. Through my tears and cheers, I have been indeed transformed by the tender mercy with which William Paul Young opened the veil that too often separated me from God and from myself. With every page, the complicated do's and don't that distort a relationship into a religion were washed away as I understood Father, Son and Holy Spirit for the first time in my life. --Patrick M. Roddy, ABC News Emmy Award winning producer

I think for most of my life i thought of God as a holy figure. Like a light that judges us while loving us. I too have questioned why did God give us suffering and pain. This really put things into perspective. I LOVED how relatable God was portrayed. Loved how she was listening to music, cooking, and even when she called Mack an idiot. I truly believe this happened. What an amazing experience. At the end it made me feel like "what about me? Can i get a Jesus and God experience?" But i walk outside and realize God is all around. And i feel uplifted. My perception has been refocused. I cannot wait to pass this on to those i love. You will not regret reading this book. Total life changer. <3
My only wish, if for more books and movies to come out like this. I really enjoyed it and still crack it open to read some of my favorite parts. Same with the movie. I might cry while doing so but they are the best, most happiest tears to ever fall from my face. Thank you so much, William Young for such a great and clear vision and how great our God really is.
After reading and watching Paul Williams, I'm impressed by his plain-spoken concept of the Trinity. In some ways I think Paul is to the Trinity as Stephen Hawking is to Physics - He can talk about a very complex topic in a very accessible way. The Shack reflects this, I think, if one reads it that way. Like any parable, one hears / reads in it what one will.

It should be read by every atheist and those that disbelieve in God!
