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.

The Shack: Where Tragedy Confronts Eternity 4.9 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 8 reviews.

From the first couple of pages, "The Shack" will draw you into a story that is both tragic and lethargic. You can actually feel the main character's pain and anguish. But, at the same time, you find yourself still rooting for a breakthrough. You will never honestly look at your relationship with other people the same way. Or your relationship with God. I am so glad that I read the book before seeing the movie. It helped me appreciate the movie that much more. While reading it, I found myself visualizing the very same things that played out on the screen. I am glad that they stuck to the story when moving the story to the big screen, I highly recommend that you read the book before seeing the movie. Outside of the bible and this book, there is one other book that made me honestly feel better feel this moved about a book that I found here on Barnes and Noble. I'd like to recommend it now. It's called "When God Stopped Keeping Score," which takes an amazing look at the power of God and forgiveness. From the story of the the father, the son and the Bible to the story of the women and the hams, "When God Stopped Keeping Score" from Author R.A. Clark is a must read for our day and age.

“The Shack” truly pulls at the heartstrings. After Mack goes through The Great Sadness, he inspires every reader to take a step back, forgive, and move on. Something about this book makes you feel as if you were the one going through the tragic events and someone was telling your story. “The Shack” was a great book that really captivates the reader and is insanely inspirational.

This book is both touching and heartbreaking. Though the situation was tragic the book ended beautifully. It's a must read for christians and non-christians. It proves that at some point our faith is tested but God show's up.

Wow!! This is my second time reading "The Shack" and it touched my soul deeper the second read. Altered my thinking. I have been working through emotional pain and suffering caused by the death of my dad when I was a teenager. Fifty years later the loss is still real, the impact of my life affected. After rereading "The Shack" another glimpse of understanding at the mysterious ways in which God loves us all is again being revealed differently. The pain and struggle of loss are devastating and seem so unfair. I was angry at God. How could he allow my dad to die? "The Shack" enlightened me to believe that God has a better master plan for all of his children. Not necessarily to my liking but better than I could ever conceive. "The Shack" reopened my eyes to forgiveness, acceptance, and purpose. It bridged the now to the ever after life. It taught me that I am worthy and loved unconditionally which allows me the freedom to be vulnerable and let love flow freely through me, to live in the present and to let the past go. God is in and He is fond of me. Now living and loving from the inside out until called home. Reflective thought altering read. Judy Steele Author of "Erupted and Evolved"
