THE SHACK Is Released in Spanish

The Shack has just been released in Spanish. It is called La Cabaña. People we’ve heard from in the industry say this book may sell more copies among the Spanish speaking audience than it has in English. Well, I’ll be shocked if that happens. But I know a lot of people read this blog who are touching the Spanish-speaking audience, so I thought I’d let you know that it is now available from Windblown Media.

This week a Kansas City TV station just ran a feature story on THE SHACK. You can see it here

In a few moments I’m off to the Central Valley for some hang-out time with hungry brothers and sisters in the area on their God journeys. It should be fun. On the way back, I’m stopping in Visalia to do a book-signing at Costco. Imagine that? Not really my deal, but the manager there wanted to encourage the store to carry more faith titles and asked if I would be part of that. So we’ll so. I’m not sure how many people will show up for me to sign a book, but it should offer some fun conversations for those who do.

Finally, this is a week of celebration in the Jacobsen clan. Our two granddaughters had birthdays over the last week. Aimee turns 4 today and Lindsay celebrated her first birthday six days ago! What immense joy and pleasure the bring into our lives. Below they are celebrating together at their Princess Birthday Party. My daughter made the cake!

    Oh Wayne, don’t forget all to tell all those people out there that The Shack is also released in another language widely spoken in the world: Dutch. 😉

    Nils,

    Almost 5 million in the US. Don’t have foreign yet, but it is #1 in Brazil and crawling up the charts in the U.K.

    Wow, 5 mill, eh? Truly mind blowing! To think only a year ago it was in the thousands. And I’m assuming you’re including our Canadian sales to the 5 million, right?

    Hey Wayne, isn’t calling us Canadians a suburb of the U.S. sort of like calling Australia a penal colony. I’m now going to crawl back in my igloo. :))

    Hi, Wayne. Happy Thanksgiving! Wish we were still in CA, so we can come join you for that feast! It’s been too long since we’ve seen you!

    Hey, let me know whenever you get around to translating The Shack into Chinese.

    Your granddaughters are adorable!

    I am so glad the book is in Spanish, i had been telling my mother about it and she like it. but because the book was in English she would not get the full effect, English is her second language so…
    now that its in Spanish she is going to read it for sure! thanks!!!

    I second the motion about translating this book into Chinese. I have Chinese friends who are struggling with the issues addressed by this book; they are universal and cross cultural bounds.

  32. Wayne January 3, 2009 at 10:46 am

    There is a Taiwan edition coming out soon and we are in negotiations with publishers to put it into Chinese as well. You can see a full list of current and upcoming foreign editions here.

    Gracias, gracias for such a wonderful work. Thank you, to you, specially for the well done details to make it, much easier for us to understand. And even better for me, to have my Chritmas presents already chosen. Lula
