Description:
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, still trapped in his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack. Against his better judgement he arrives at the shack on a wintery afternoon and faces up to 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!

What the papers say:
'Brilliant! One of the most faith-enhancing books I have ever read' Bear Grylls 'Clearly the book is speaking loud and clear to a lot of people' The Independent Bunyanesque ... bold, imaginative, humane and funny. Church Times 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 'This is the most heart-warming, inspirational story I have read in decades. If you only read one book in the next year...read THE SHACK' J.John 'By far the most captivating, deliciously written and theologically refreshing page turner of a novel I have ever read.' Gerald Coates, Pioneer 'Dangerous, dangerous way to do off-the-hook theology, I love it! It's not just what happens when a theologian becomes storyteller: this is what happens when a survivor who has experienced God decides to tell a story. This should be required reading in spirituality/theodicy classes everywhere. The Shack will quickly become a modern classic, and it will inspire imitators. But very few will match the competence of this work.' Siku THE SHACK is the most absorbing work of fiction I've read in many years. My wife and I laughed, cried and repented of our own lack of faith along the way. THE SHACK will leave you craving for the presence of God. Michael W. Smith, Recording Artist This story reads like a prayer - like the best kind of prayer, filled with sweat and wonder and transparency and surprise. If you read one work of fiction this year, let this be it. Mike Morrell, Zoecarnate.com Reading THE SHACK during a very difficult transition in my life, this story has blown the door wide open to my soul. Wynonna Judd, Recording Artist
