The Shack - William Paul Young

Book Description:
Mackenzie Allen Philips's 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 inside 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 the shack for a weekend.
Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back 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.

Author Bio:
William Paul 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.


My Review:
Although this book touches on a sensitive subject, do not let it deter from getting a copy and reading it. This book was #1 on the NYT Bestseller's List and I agree as to why.
A compelling story, that challenges your own belief and faith. I have honestly not had a book in my hands that was so easy to read, and keep turning page after page.
I loved this book enough, I am going to tell every single person I know about it. It is one of those books you will have to pass around to friends. Ironically, I received my copy from my sister, and I in turn am passing it on to my mother. She will pass it on to someone else. I am that sure!
You already figured I love the book, and am recommending it.

~I received this copy from family. I was not compensated for my opinion.~


  1. I have been on the fence about this book for a while now, basically because of the subject. I'll will definitely read it now. Thanks for the review!

  2. I will look for this one asap. Great review!

  3. Couldn't agree more! I absolutely LOVED this book.

  4. I've heard great things about this one but have yet to try it. Thanks for the review.

  5. I haven't read this one and probably won't. I'm not even sure why, maybe it's because everyone loves it and I'm sure I'll be disappointed.

  6. I've had this one on my pile for awhile. I think I will put it higher on the list! Great review!

  7. I read this book and thought it was great. I couldn't put the book down until I was done reading it. I can't say too much about the characters in the book without giving the story away but I liked the way the author portrayed them, and the way they interacted with the main character in the story.

  8. I would really like to read this book. Excellent, concise review!

Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
