Where is God in a pain-filled world? The answers in The Shack will astound—and maybe even transform—you.
The unthinkable befalls the Philips family—Missy, their youngest daughter, is abducted during the 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 what he calls The Great Sadness, Mack receives a note, apparently from God, inviting him back to the shack for a weekend. He decides to return to his darkest nightmare. Or so he thinks.
What should you do when you come to the door of a shack where God might be? Mack decides to bang loudly, but as he raises his fist, the door flies open and what Mack experiences changes his world forever.
But who will believe him? To be fair, who wouldn’t be skeptical when a man claims to have spent a weekend with God? In a shack in the wilderness, no less.
But, as Mack’s friend Willie says, “I can promise you that the conversations and events are recorded as truthfully as Mack can remember them, so please try to cut him a little slack…these are not easy things to talk about.”
One more thing. You’ll want everyone you know to read this book!

Why do writers always feel the need to depict African American women as overweight "Aunt Jemima" types cooking in the kitchen? Please don't feel you're getting closer to God by reading this book. It's riddled with cliches and a lot of rambling. Save your money.
