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!

William P. Young was born a Canadian and raised among a stone-age tribe by his missionary parents in the highlands of what was New Guinea. He suffered great loss as a child and young adult, and now enjoys the 'wastefulness of grace' with his family in the Pacific Northwest.

  • The Shack

    After losing my youngest daughter four years ago in an accident, the need to find answers has been heartwrenching. The term "The Great Sadness" is definitely an appropriate term for the emptiness a parent feels at the loss of a child. The method the author uses is obviously, unconventional at times, but the message brings so much comfort to those of us seeking answers to unanswerable questions. I thank him for putting into words, with such insight and sensitivity, the queries that haunted me.

  • Provoking

    I have been angry for some time now due to an untimely death in my family (10 years ago) and my friend suggested this book. He was afraid the subject matter of the abduction would be hard to take, but it was the rest of Mitch's journey that hit home for me. I am so very glad I read this book. I am not a 'religious' person per se, but this book profoundly moved me.

  • Amazing Story

    The story of The Shack is an amzing venture into faith, love and forgiveness. Going into this book, I didn't know what to expect. What I found was one man's journey to finding a way to come to terms with the loss of his daughter and with his anger towards God for allowing the tragedy to happen. This is a must read.

  • Paradigm Smasher

    This book held my attention from the first page. It was an entertaining novel that presented some ideas that were a bit radical. I did not agree with everything in the book, but I thought the author put together some events and character backgrounds that made the book believable. He entered enough facts that the reader could choose to believe if it happened as an out of body experience, a dream, or a real occurence. The main effect of the book was to present new ways of looking at what we have always believed. Have we assumed things and built on false assumptions? Have we built on false beliefs?

  • The Shack

    This story is spellbinding and takes you on a soul searching journey of intrige, heartbreak, inspiration, commitement, relief....... a book that is one you want to read from beginning to end in one sitting, but; it's best to read a little & absorb it, then go read a little more until it all sinks in. A great ending to a beautifully told story.

  • A real spiritual treat

    I have read this book twice already and am about to read it again. One learns more from it at each reading. It was a very profound religious experience for me. Your concepts of God will be blown away in a very wonderful way.
