The Shack
by William Young
fiction
From The Jacket:Mackenzie Allen Philips’ 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 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 judgment 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. You'll want everyone you know to read this book!
The opening pages of this book certainly got my attention. Then as the book progressed, I felt it lost touch with reality and headed straight into the fantasy world. It was just too much to believe (even for fiction). It was also very predictable; I knew well in advance how it was going to end. I would suggest this book only for the seriously religious.
