Thanks to Whitney for reminding me about this. I havent posted about this book yet because it is a slow read for me. The Shack by William P Young is a good book. I am not quite halfway through it. I originally had 7 people from completely different friend groups to tell me to read this book.
The back cover reads "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 laterin 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 judgement, he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Macks 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 unspeakablepain?" The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him.
A few quotes from the book that have touched me so far are: In one day, he had spent a years worth of emotions, and now he felt numb, adrift in a suddenly meaningless world that felt like it would be forever gray.
The Great Sadness tightened around him and he almost welcomed the smothering sensation. This pain he knew. He was familiar with it, almost like a friend.
Love always leaves a significant mark.
It is a good book so far. I just shed a lot of tears in the beginning, but it's getting better. Stay tuned for this too.
