I just love love love this book! Young described the title of is book during an interview as;
‘A metaphor for the places you get stuck, you get hurt, you get damaged…the thing where shame or hurt is centered.”
Guy’s that’s just deep!
So with all the hype surrounding this book online, I decided to delve into the book and see what it was about. Read it within 2 days coz did’t want to get sucked in to watching the movie first. If i did, chances are I would not have finished the book.
My take/Review: Raw emotions and prepare to do lot’s of soul searching. Warning, If you are not into religion, stay clear from this or.. hmmm.. read it heh?!
Mackenzie’s journey is one of those thing’s that’s so hard to review and it needs your inner interpretation. So check out Amazon’s review below and let me know what you think.
PS: Movie was just released this month! yeah!
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.
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 unspeakable pain?” The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You’ll want everyone you know to read this book!
