Book 3 - The Shack

The Shack by WM. Paul Young

The Plot:
A father (Mack) of 5 takes his 3 youngest children on a camping trip at the end of the summer. When the 2 older children flip over in a canoe and he has to rush into the lake to save them, his youngest daughter is abducted. Her body never found. Four years later Mack receives a note, apparently from God, asking him to meet at the shack (where his daughter was believed to be taken). Mack decides to go, if only to prove to himself that the note was a hoax and not from God. Once he arrives however, his whole life changes.

This book is a must read for everyone! I loved it! At first I was like, "Great...a book that is going to mock God or make a joke of things." However, there were few, if any, things that I did not agree with. It was amazing how the author showed the trinity and explained certain things. I don't want to say to much because that would give away the story or the meaning behind it. It did make me think and look at certain things about God differently. So... go read it!
