How can wounded people come to believe that God deeply loves them?
Many have enjoyed William Young's The Shack, even if they puzzled over the book's actual meaning and theology. While some were quick to dismiss it as fiction, The Shack isn't really fiction at all. It's a modern day parable.
Meeting God at The Shack shows hurting people how to read this story with profit and come to know God more fully.
