Mackenzie Allen Phillips'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 in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, in this 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 wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

  • Watch Out!

    I know this book is fiction but you CANNOT be in the presence of Almighty God and live! Let alone personify the father as a woman.
  • The Best Book Ever!!

    When my husband first mentioned the book, I decided that I would read it because it's his favourite book. It was such an amazing book! It actually changed my thinking on a lot of things... it's changed me in the couple of days it took me to read it... I'm so glad that I read it and gave it a chance... I WOULD DEFIANTLY RECOMMEND THIS TO EVERYONE!

    This novel was AWESOME! I read the book then watched it at the theater, the book is a hundred times better because it has so much more then they can put up on the screen. Loved reading and watching it!

    There is little doubt this book will assist millions in their breaking free from asking the question, "Why, God?" So many generations have struggled. I struggle. Reading this book has offered me a different perception - a different ability - to which I can utilize in order to make sense of life's most horrific nightmares. From within these pages I have taken forgiveness and love. I pray so many are able to do the same. Forgive those who have hurt us and love each other without question or expectation. What a world we may one day wake up to should we be able to comply.

    Best book ever!!!!!!!!
  • Religious book, not mystery

    By D.morganbarry
    I was a bit disappointed when 1/5th into this book I realized The Shack is religious propaganda instead of a murder mystery/thriller. I wish it was more clear in the description. I wouldn't have wasted my money.
  • Wow!

    This was such a great read! I'm more aware of the limitations we put on ourselves and God. Relationships are the core of God of whom is TRUE LOVE.
