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.

God-Breathed Brilliance!

The Shack is without a doubt God-breathed.

The Shack cuts your soul and leaves it wide open for God to come in and heal you.

I listened to the audio book in 2 days! Couldn't stop listening; and read it again in the following weeks!

Not for the critical thinker.

I found many of the situations in the book contrived. Not my cup of tea.

Great job by Roger Mueller though, excellent narration.

Exceptional and healing

Loved the story. Finished it very quickly. I struggle with forgiveness towards myself and others. This book made me think about that. It touched all the strings in my heart when I felt hurt by others, which resulted in me closing my heart. Despite the story being fictional, everything else here is real. At least, for me.

If you are doubting... you won’t regret it

I loved everything about this book. Paints a picture about God and life that is so painfully necessary. I would recommend this book to anyone that was able to understand language. This is by far the best book I have ever purchased and this comes from someone that has had an obsession with books since age 7. Really... unbelievable.

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.

Weird faith story

Took a long time to get going and then it dissolved into a weird illustration of God. I hoped it would get better to the end but it did not

An amazing book

The narration to WM Paul You g’s book The Shack brings the story to life. But this book is so much more than just a story. It will touch each reader in ways unimaginable. It tackles issues of theology and ‘church’ that trip up so many and brings to the fire the deep love and grace of God, beyond any boundaries of religion, creed or doctrine. A truly amazing book.
