---- The Shack - Where tragedy confronts eternity
The faith based novel that caused a stir in the church and in literary circles, 'The Shack' is a book people should read before making their own judgement. It is a fantastic growing phenomenon, as originally The Shack was never intended to be published and its initial production produced 14 copies that were intended for friends. That has now risen to the production and the selling of over 4 million copies worldwide and becoming a New York Times bestseller.
---- The Shack - Plot of a Deeply Spiritual Novel
The pain in this novel is that 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, ostensibly 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.
---- The Author - About William Paul Young
William Paul Young, known by his friends and family as Paul is a self-proclaimed 'accidental' author with 'The Shack' being originally written for his 6 children as a present. He wrote as a way to provide unique gifts to his friends and family and this was the birth of 'The Shack'. Living in Canada with his wife and children Paul was raised by missionary parents and he has lived a life where he created his shack, which he describes as a place that is filled with issues and hurt.
"When the imagination of a writer and the passion of a theologian cross-fertilize the result is a novel of the order of The Shack."
- Eugene Peterson, author of The Message.

The ShackGuest reviewer, via The Good Book Stall
This UK edition from Hodder published 17th July 2008
Seldom can such an unheralded book by an unknown author cause such interest not only in the Christian publishing world, but also in general publishing! Last week (August 2008) it had reached sales of over 2 million copies in Britain alone! Basically this is a novel concerning the mysterious disappearance of a young girl. Four years on, the girl’s father ‘Mack’ receives a note, apparently from God, inviting him back to the place – the shack, where evidence had previously been found which points to his daughter having been murdered there. Against his fear and better judgement, the grieving father decides to go…..
The remainder of the book graphically describes him meeting God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in a manner he never envisaged, i.e. God is a black woman! The book is subtitled ‘Where tragedy confronts eternity’, and the whole aspect of suffering is dealt with at great length. Many people query ‘Why does God allow suffering to happen?’ William Young tackles this question in a unique way. Using fiction as a tool, he is able to reach deep into the human heart and shows how God deals with each one of us in an individual and loving way, if only we will let Him. This book truly brings healing and understanding to one of the most difficult subjects that many of us have to deal with. In my opinion it is an outstanding book, fully deserving of its huge sales.
