I listened to this book on our trip to North Carolina. It is AWESOME!!! I was not at all prepared... it was difficult... but I recommend it to everybody. It's right up there with Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers for me. I will be buying several copies... one for me and one for the church library.
...mind you I had NO idea what I was getting myslef in to...
Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the 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 judgement he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack's world forever.
In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant. The Shack wrestles with the timeless question, "Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?" The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him.
Reading "The Shack"' wasn't reading a book, it was listening to a song...a bittersweet, story that every person should hear. Reading "The Shack", wasn't reading a book, it was finding a treasure... a deeply hidden priceless, shining treasure, that every person should discover. Reading "The Shack", wasn't reading a book, it was taking a journey, a soul-searching, simply difficult, incredible journey that everyone should make time to take. Reading "The Shack", wasn't reading a book.....it was reading a love letter. A beautifully, touching, loveletter, that every person needs to get......that no one could forget. No, it wasn't reading a book........it was receiving a gift!!!! Thanks Papa!!!
