This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress did for his. It's that good! - Eugene PetersonTHE SHACK is the most absorbing work of fiction I've read in many years. My wife and I laughed, cried and repented of our own lack of faith along the way. THE SHACK will leave you craving for the presence of God. - Michael W.
