Bishop Barron on “The Shack”

Bishop Robert Barron

June 15, 2009


The Shack has become an international phenomenon, sitting atop The New York Times bestseller list for months and now inspiring a blockbuster movie. It’s a modern retelling of the Biblical story of Job, of a good and righteous man who confronts the problem of suffering. Though it has its faults, it’s a book worth reading, especially if you’ve experienced serious suffering yourself.

NOTE: This commentary is on the book version, not the film.
