The Shack

by William P. Young

      Mac Philips' youngest daughter, six-year-old Melissa, is abducted and killed while on a family camping outing, and Mac feels the awful weight of guilt for not preventing it. Not long afterward, her bloody, red flowered dress is found in a dilapidated shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in the midst of deep sadness he receives a note apparently from God asking him to return to that very cabin for the weekend.

Against his better judgment, he returns to the place of his darkest nightmare, only to find himself and his life forever changed.

In a world where religion seems increasingly irrelevant The Shack wrestles with the timeless question, "Where is God at times of unspeakable pain?" But this time the answers will astound and perhaps even transform you!

The Shack reads like non-fiction, an as-told-to story of terrible loss and heartache, but its truth shines like a beacon in pitch blackness. As an author and editor, I am hard to impress, but this book left me breathless, shattering all my preconceived notions of God. I can truly say I will never be the same again. And neither will you!
