Publisher's Summary

The powerful best-selling novel, now a major motion picture, of how a grief-stricken man's encounter with God changes his life forever. With 20 million copies sold worldwide, The Shack is an international best seller that explores life's toughest questions through the gripping story of one man's struggle to find answers to his suffering.

Mack's youngest daughter, Missy, was abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, still trapped in his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack. Against his better judgment, Mack arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon. What he finds there will change his life forever.

The Shack wrestles with the timeless question 'where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?' Mack's experiences when he faces up to his darkest nightmares will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as they did him. This is the kind of story you'll want to tell everyone about. Millions have discovered it already - now it's your turn.

This audiobook contains a bonus interview with the author.

    "I wanted to like this"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure, the concept seemed fine but I don't think it worked.


    What didn’t you like about Roger Mueller’s performance?

    Trying too hard and fell short


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Resigned, I gave up.

    Story
    "Fascinating, refreshing, creative & controversial"

    A fascinating and refreshing fictional story about some real life topics most people would like to have direct face-to-face conversations with God about. Sure, it's not entirely theologically correct but it is fiction. However, the essence of the message is a positive depiction of God in a world and industries that often seeks every opportunity to try and diminish or undermine His existence. Reading between the lines the author has a healthy relationship with The Lord and the healing testimonies, the almost tangible presence of God experienced when I watched this at the cinema and the indelible mark it left on me afterwards enabled me to get freedom in some areas I had challenges. Friends share similar sentiments especially those who lost their child unexpectedly. Let's not put God in a box. To the pure all things are pure. Thanks for using your imagination and experiences, WM Paul Young, to write a fascinating and creative piece which stimulates healthy conversation and thoughts about God, why 'bad things happen to good people' and nurturing healthy relationships.

    Story
    "Heart wrenching and thought provoking!"

    This is an amazing story! It has such strong human elements of love, disappointment, anger, loss, and gain. One of the most, if not the most captivating book I've read in a long while, listen to, to be more precise. The deep theological truths of God's love and grace is so well explained. Roger Mueller's reading and portrayal of the characters is flawless! I love the audio version so much that I bought the printed book as well! Highly recommended.
