Item Description...
Overview
Roger Olson, who has faced his own Great Sadness, finds a good deal of comfort in this much beloved, story as have so many others. Some may ask, however, Is God really like that? Is that really how God responds to evil? Can God be trusted? Olson also views The Shack with a theologian's eye and finds much sound truth. He delves into many of the significant issues raised by the book such as forgiving those who have done us great evil, how God acts in the world, how God is three persons in one and what difference this makes to us. While he offers his own criticisms of the book, he largely finds the truth about God in The Shack. --from publisher description

Publishers Description
The Shack has touched millions of readers with its portrayal of a compassionate God in the face of great evil. Many have identified with the main character's Great Sadness, the terrible burden of grief that often accompanies and follows a deep loss, for the Great Sadness is part of the human condition. And it compels us to ask, Where is God? Who is God? Roger Olson, who has faced his own Great Sadness, finds a good deal of comfort in this much beloved, story as have so many others. Some may ask, however, Is God really like that? Is that really how God responds to evil? Can God be trusted? Olson also views The Shack with a theologian's eye and finds much sound truth. He delves into many of the significant issues raised by the book such as forgiving those who have done us great evil, how God acts in the world, how God is three persons in one and what difference this makes to us. While he offers his own criticisms of the book, he largely finds the truth about God in The Shack.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
informational and well written  May 27, 2010
I found this book to compliment and give sound insight into The Shack. Very well written and although the author gives his oppinions, they are not judgemental and leaves room for the reader to form his/her own oppinion on issues of The Shack.
 
Better Than the Original!!!  Mar 17, 2010
This is one of those rare, extremely rare, cases where the sequel (actually a followup book) is as good and probablay better than the original

"The Shack" was outstanding. It effectively freed God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit from the molds of orthodoxy that have held them captive for 2,000 years.

This book discusses the breaking of that mold and brings the new way of thinking all together, pointing out where "The Shack" got it right and where it may have gone a little too far. This book puts it all together without being "too theological," which was one of The Shack's main assets.

Both are significant contributions to Christian thought, study, and consideration.

Both books, expecially this one, are far better than most of the sermons I have heard over the last 50 years or so. Far better (and I've heard some good ones!!!)

Read the books, both of them. They will warm your heart and make you think.

But if you have to choose one, choose this one!!!
 
Finding God in the Shack.  Feb 28, 2010
This was a very thourough review of The Shack. I was very pleased with this book.
 
Excellent helping tool for The Shack".  Feb 20, 2010
I purchased "Finding God in the Shack" to use as a study guide as I prepare to do a Lenten Study on "The Shack" and it has supplied me with a great deal of insight and information that I never considered.
 
The Shack  Jan 24, 2010
I have recommended this book to many of my friends. I typically am not drawn to fictional books about God...however this book helped me to fall in love with God again. I needed to see God in this light to get passed some "religious" junk that was between God and me. I realize the book is fictional and therefore treat it as such...but the writer took me on a journey to realize that God is a loving God and that bad things happen in this life due to the evil in this world. Read it...enjoy it and then get your bible out so that you too can fall in love with our God.
