The Shack by William Paul Young



Mackenzie "Mack" Allen Philip's youngest daughter, Missy, was abducted from a family camping vacation. The last evidence of Missy was found at a shack abandoned in the woods. Four years later, Mack is still grieving. His wife was not on the vacation and he feels like it was his fault that Missy was kidnapped and probably murdered. He can't get over his depression and his questions to God. Why didn't God save Missy?

Then he gets a note, "Mackenzie, It's been a while. I've missed you. I'll be at the shack next weekend if you want to get together. -Papa"

His wife calls God, Papa. This can't be a message from God!?! Mack decided he has to go in case it's the murderer toying with him. Hoping he can find out what happened to Missy and catch the culprit. So Mack heads out to the shack in the woods. There on the floor of the shack is the dark stain that indicated where Missy had probably died. His emotions fall apart and all the despair, hate, anger come out. Once he stops sobbing, he decides to go back to the car but the snow has disappeared and the air is warm. The shack has changed into a sturdy log cabin and the yard is "postcard perfect". He hears voices and smells cooking. He steps back on the porch and goes in to find a black woman, an oriental woman and a Middle Eastern man.

Over the next 2 days, Mack has conversations with these people that bring surprising healing to his wounded heart and he finds out what happened to Missy.

"Finally! A guy-meets-God Novel that has literary integrity and spiritual daring." - Mike Morrell, zoecarnate.com

"This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan's "Pilgrim's Progress" did for his. It's that good! --Eugene Peterson, Professor Emeritus of Spiritual Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, B.C.

I went to Amazon.com and started reading some of the book reviews by customers and was brought to tears by some. I encourage you to do this too.

I recommend this book to everyone.
