The Shack by William P. Young is a must read for anyone who has ever struggled with the problem of loss and pain. It is an allegorical journey into the very heart of the God who loves us so much and grieves over the pain of his people. It deals with the issue of theodicy, which is the attempt to reconcile the bad things that happen in this world with the idea of a loving, benevolent God. Here is a link to the website for The Shack. It gives you an opportunity to even read the first chapter. The link is: http://theshackbook.com/. Enjoy!
