If you haven’t ever read this very popular and best-selling book, we want to recommend it to you!

This is the story of a man (Mac) in great emotional pain, who is taken / invited on a very special journey, having experienced a huge tragedy in his life. He meets God in a profoundly special way and discovers the way in which he is truly loved.

The Shack wrestles with the timeless question, ‘Where is God in a world filled with so much suffering and pain’….

Macs experience, when he faces up to his darkest nightmare, will astound you and perhaps transform you, as it did him. This book (or film) explains life’s toughest questions through the story of one man’s struggle to find answers to suffering.

We watched the film version of this story the other evening (found on Netflix, on one of our nights in!!) and experienced again the sheer brilliance of Paul William Young.

This maybe your season to read/reread the book or watch/re-watch this profoundly moving story.
