The Shack (the book/the movie)

The main character in The Shack is consumed by anger after losing his daughter to a serial killer. In this book a conversation with God is started. Author Paul Young takes the reader on a journey of forgiveness.

A large portion of this book is dialogue between the main character and God as “papa.” Dark hidden memories make us. The dialogue involves that secret place everyone keeps hidden where they bury their pain.

This book is complex and hard to relay into a simple description for someone who has not read it. It was recently made into a movie. Many book to movie transitions don’t turn out well. This isn’t one of them. If you’ve read the book, you want to see the movie. If you’ve seen the movie and want to explore this story more, then you must read the book.
