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.

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.

Rekindling your Faith

I read this book years ago, if you can accept God being played by a woman it’s truly enlightening. It made me question why I had given up on Jesus and religion. I have now been a practicing Christian for 4 years, I was so pleased to see it on audible. I downloaded it straight away, and have listened to it several times!

just couldn't get into it

What did you like best about The Shack? What did you like least?

I love the story but just couldn't get into the audio book

Would you ever listen to anything by Wm Paul Young again?

not sure

Any additional comments?

I have read the book previously and enjoyed it but found the audio book hard to get into. I think it was the performance and just didn't enjoy the voice style. Good book though!
