About this item

Written by the son of missionaries for his own children, THE SHACK has become an unforeseen bestseller. Riding a wave of both rapturous word-of-mouth praise and sharp criticism, it has become a significant novel in the Christian community. The premise is simple and powerful, like a tale from the Bible itself: Mackenzie Phillips, a former seminary student, is crippled with grief over the brutal abduction and murder of his young daughter four years ago. When he receives a summons to the mountain shack where his daughter was killed, he is suspicious, but eventually discovers that he has been called to a private meeting with God, with each part of the Holy Trinity appearing in different guises. Author William P. Young uses novelistic devices to make Christian values easily understood and, more significantly, deeply felt. However, his book has stirred up controversy in its casual and modernized depiction of God, and Young's occasional disregard for Church orthodoxy.
Mackenzie Allen Phillips's youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in this midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

This book did nothing for me but make me think of more questions that were not answered. Not inspired at all by it and found it very scary . Read like a fairy tale if you believe in fairy tales.

Great read with a great story about relationships with God on a more relatable level set in modern time. Some of it is hard to read just based on subject matter.
