Excerpt from the Shack

If you didn’t get a chance to look at the book list under my International Women’s Day post, you should pop over there and have a read through now. And be sure to come back this Friday for a new release! If you’ve been reading the Reg Rawlins, Psychic Investigator series, you won’t want to miss A Catastrophic Theft.

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme. Read the rules and more teasers at The Purple Booker. Anyone can play along.

I am currently reading The Shack by Wm Paul Young. While I stopped to look at it because it appeared to be suspense, it is actually an exploration of the nature of God, good and evil, agency versus surrender of self, etc. The main character, Mac, is the father of a murdered child, and is summoned to the shack not to solve her case or to confront the killer, but to meet God and start the grieving and healing process. It is a book reminiscent of C.S. Lewis, with some interesting insights and suggestions.

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

William P. Young, The Shack

Mackenzie Allen Phillips’s 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 this 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 wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.
