Pause for Thought

The Shack by William P. Young is the story of Mack who is angry with God about the murder of his young daughter. 

God should have prevented it! 
His wife seems to be getting on with life: he, however, is losing touch with his family. His anger and grief are suffocating him.
He then has an encounter with God while he is in a coma following an accident. 
He is shown that being so judgemental does not work and that God is with all sufferers and does care and love. 
Mack changes his ways. The journey to that point is remarkable and revealing. 
Why not read the book or watch the film?
