The Shack is a powerful thought-provoking piece that shall genuinely transform a doubting or lost heart into a self-generating cocoon willing to shed its shell to become a butterfly.
The Shack is a story about Mackenzie Allen Philips, a loving father who could accept why her daughter, Missy, has to die in the hands of a mad man. Four years later, he received a letter from God, asking him to visit the shack – the place where her daughter’s bloodstained clothes were found.
What he found out that visit changed his life and will probably change your life if you read this book.
I picked up this book for the wrong reasons. The cover picture looked like it was a suspense/thriller/horror story and the initial back story described a murder. I wasn’t reading too well because the first few pages told me otherwise, and literally, made me re-read the back cover. And yes, I was so wrong.
Having bought it already, I still gave it a shot at reading but the first pages simply bored me to death so I shelved it. Most of the books I’ve read are Young Adult fiction and, every once in a while, I try some inspirational or motivational books from Paulo Coelho, Spencer Johnson or Ken Blanchard, but Christian novels are simply not my thing.
And yet, I finished this one, enjoyed it and loved every bit of it. It was beautiful. And for lack of a better way to put it, the reading insight must be experienced.
