The Shack

On the back of this book it says:

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!

Now for what I think of this book. I thought the book was WONDERFUL. At the very beginning I was like whatever. but then he gets to the 'shack'. The shack was when the magic started. Still even the beginning of the shack part I was feeling like I can't really believe this. Remember the book isn't asking you to believe the story. You need to feel the story. You need to reflect on what it is saying. It asks you to think about how you veiw this world, and your place in this crazy life. I don't want to ruin this by telling you excatly what was in the book, but just know that for me it was totally worth my time.

*****Stay tuned for my 100th post giveaway. It will be next and it will be good!*****
