This most unlikely of stories, as told in William Young's The Shack, has become a runaway best seller and it is easy to see why. The book brings us on a redemptive journey through the shacks of deepest pain and suffering in our lives, guided by the triune God of Christian faith.
Aware both of the excitement and uncertainty generated by The Shack, theologian Randal Rauser takes the reader on a fascinating journey through the pages of the story. In successive chapters he explores many of the books complex and controversial issues. Through these chapters Rauser offers an honest and illuminating discussion which opens up a new depth to the conversation while providing the reader with new opportunities for Finding God in The Shack.

Way too long.
There are no characters. It is a commentary
Not movie material.
This is a theological review of 'The Shack'. I found it somewhat informative and very tedious. It is like the NBC commentary after a political speech telling you what you should really think/believe about the speech you just listened to. It seems that 'The Shack' is a book that is best left between you and God. To pray and meditate over for the edification of Christ in your own heart. This book is preachy and de-personalized 'The Shack' for me. It is not clear to me why the author felt the need to write 'Finding God in the Shack'.
I like to read books that makes me think and this book gave me many ideas. Often I was quite surprised what Mr Olson said about the Shack, but many times he has good Biblical reasons behind what he is saying. This kind of book could be quite heavy and boring, but I think it is interesting and I wanted to listen it quickly, there was often interesting surprises behind a corner.
I must say there is things I don't agree with Mr Olson, but even in those points he has probably better arguments than me.
I love listing to it over and over again--I learned a lot from this Audio
It will bring you closer and closer to God
