The Shack, By Wm. Paul Young, begs the question: Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain? Itâ€™s fiction, although the forward clearly states it is based upon the lead characterâ€™s account of what actually happenedâ€¦
It is a sad story about Missy. However, I did find it leaving me wanting to know God better. I enjoyed reading about how the Father, Son and Holy Spirit interacted. And good examples of genuine relationships; good and evil; the past, present and future; love; forgiveness; and this crazy world we live in.
Many people have read it and I would recommend it to everyone who hasnâ€™t.
â€œWe know in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.â€ Romans 8:28
The Shack never really says this, but thatâ€™s what I think itâ€™s all about.
