Mackenzie Allen Phillips's youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation. 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 judgement, he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.
What he finds there will change his life forever.
THE SHACK is the most absorbing work of fiction I've read in many years. My wife and I laughed, cried and repented of our own lack of faith along the way. THE SHACK will leave you craving for the presence of God. - Michael W. Smith, Recording Artist
This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress did for his. It's that good! - Eugene Peterson
This story reads like a prayer - like the best kind of prayer, filled with sweat and wonder and transparency and surprise. If you read one work of fiction this year, let this be it. - Mike Morrell, Zoecarnate.com
Reading THE SHACK during a very difficult transition in my life, this story has blown the door wide open to my soul. - Wynonna Judd, Recording Artist
