I’m not going to say anymore. This was a pivotal and instrumental book in her life. For the film based on it, see The Shack film. And it is a book which has a lot to say on the subject of religion. Many people are and that’s fantastic, but this book was so stupid that I have hopes that any well informed, well read, reasonable Christian would have asked themselves ‘What the fuck did I just read?
Koliba : gde se tragedija sukobljava sa večnošću. (Book) 
Or was it preaching to like minds God is waiting for Mack. Tony not only sees yokng the eyes of others, but he feels their emotions and interprets experiences through their perspectives.
If you have ever longed to see God you will certainly appreciate this book. This is Jesus conversing with the main character, Mack; “Our is earth is like a child who has grown up without parents, having no one to guide and direct her.
In the book god says that bad things happen because he gave us freewill and that wipiam tries to use it for good.

So much of what plagues modern popular Christian fiction didacticism, lack of subtlety, undeveloped characters, telling not showing, over-obvious foreshadowing, drawing conclusions for the reader, even the obtrusive, attempt-to-be-hip pop culture references plagued this book. The sinner, Tony, first meets Jesus and The Holy Spirit; gets sent back to his comatose self; gets his soul transferred to a boy with Down’s Syndrome; then his black, female caretaker; then her boyfriend; then back to the female caretaker, etc.
I’m also not what I would consider to be a very religious person. Jan 11, Keith rated it liked it. That is just a snippet of what is so terribly wrong with this book.
Of course I know God is capable of changing people in a flash but it is often a lifetimes process. There are a lot of fun and interesting people we meet along the way, while walking with Tony through his journey. And so I end this review with a challenge.

So I read the book ko,iba a God-Lover and I write this review in the same vein. I give it the second star because it clearly has touched so many people, so obviously the flaws that prevented me from really appreciating it are wkliam an impediment to its central message for most readers. When he was six he was sent to a boarding school. If you have experienced — or are going through — your own ‘Agony in the Garden’ time in your life this book may be a very cathartic aid. Mack was abused by his father as a child.
There are fifteen tear drops in the margins. And its message that God is love is something that needs to touch people. The E-mail Address es you entered is are not in a valid format. I am required to be restrained here: My godmother bought me this novel because she believes I need Salvation with a capital S.
The New York Times. Tony Spencer begins the story as a financially successful, distilled monster suffering some serious psychiatric issues, and is redeemed.
When Mack receives a note in his mailbox from God, luring him back to the cabin where his daughter was murdered, he doesn’t know what to think.
Why not use alternative words especially in a fictional book. It was certainly a change from my usual type of story, so that was refreshing in a sense.
In my opinion, Young could have thought this through more carefully and not made it so fantastic. For now, here is a good one to read: He can come to us in any form we would listen be comfortable with him. Now, four years after Missy’s murder, her father receives a letter in his mailbox — from God — inviting him back to the scene of the crime, a return to The Shack where the trail of evidence ended.
The book’s messages about God, of course, cover much more ground than theodicy; they’re about, ultimately, what it really means to relate to God in Christ, the relationship of trust and surrender to his control that He wants to have with every human being.
