#FridayBookShare THE SHACK by Wm Paul Young @ShelleyWilson72

Welcome to a #FridayBookShare post it’s been a while since I joined in with this game created by Shelley Wilson

With the weekend approaching it’s the perfect time to seek out new books to read, so Shelley has created a Friday Book Share game to help search for that ideal read.

First line of the book.

“Who wouldn’t be sceptical when a man claims to have spent an entire weekend with God, in a shack no less? And this was the shack.”

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

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!

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Mack: Hurt, angry, judgmental.

Delightful design

“Well, Mackenzie, don’t just stand there gawkin’ with your mouth open like your pants are full”, said the big black woman as she turned and headed across the deck, talking the whole time. “Come and talk to me while I get supper on.”

  1. After reading the comments now I’m curious. I keep meaning to join on this, but never seem to have time for two posts or rather three, on a Friday. Perhaps over the holidays…

  2. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve almost bought this book. For some reason I just haven’t committed to reading it yet, but I’m drawn to it each time I see it in the bookstore. Great to see it on Friday Book Share. Makes me think I will take yet another look at it yet again.

    • I’d never heard of it until recently, I tend not to read books that are ever “in vogue” , so although this has been about for a good while, I’d not known about it. Then when browsing in Waterstones it jumped out at me, so I made a rash buy.

      • I’m not an “in vogue” reader either. I tend to follow authors and genres I like rather than trends. The cover on this one was the first thing that attracted me and it keeps drawing me back to it each time. I’m just worried the story may be too dark and depressing for me.

  3. Ive read this – an unusual choice of book for me, but what a story. Who knows if it’s true but I love that his talks with god challenged his perceptions of his religion. Fab choice.
