Audio Book Summary

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 judgment, 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.

    Excellent narration. The music was also a nice touch in between chapters.

    Outstanding Book!!! I saw the movie and thought it was one of the best and most unique movies about God I\'ve seen in a very long time. I actually saw the movie 3 times and wanted to know more. A friend recommended that I read the book because it contained much more about the interaction between Mack and the trinity of God. Sure enough, it did. I thoroughly enjoyed the way the book elaborated on the weekend communion and fellowship between Mack, Papa, Sarayu, Jesus and Sophia (Wisdom). The author\'s depiction of God was different than anything I have seen or read; yet, made complete sense. It was as if someone took many \"loose ends\" of my understanding about God and tied them into something which, in retrospect, seemed very obvious. My thought was \"of course, why didn\'t I think of this?\" I LOVED how Papa, Jesus and Sarayu interacted with one another. God\'s love for Mack was an extension of the eternal loving relationship the author described between and among each person of the trinity. The author\'s description of the loving relationship between each person of the trinity was an \"Aha!\" moment for me. It made complete sense and helped me envision, for the first time, a believable personification of the trinity. I also liked how Mack took the opportunity to ask God many of those nagging questions most of us think about from time to time. After seeing the movie and reading the book, I wanted more and didn\'t have to look far. With such a unique depiction of God\'s trinity, it is no wonder that there are many books written about this book!! I am getting ready to start another called \"Finding God in the Shack.\" Any review without commenting on the narration would be incomplete. The narrator is an exceptionally skilled actor using every manner of voice inflection, changes in accent, and every available speech tool to bring to live each distinct character. Listening to this book was, from many perspectives, an experience to remember.

    I chose this book randomly and the title gave not an inkling of the story away. I was transfixed immediately and loved every line. The description of characters, scenery, and plot was spot on. It has strengthened yet changed my outlook for the better in many ways. I loved the story and the way it was told. It was meant to be that I chose it.

    To be honest, at first the figure of God was hard for me to wrap my brain around, and I almost quit listening. I\'m so glad I didn\'t! This book has touched my heart in profound ways! Thank you Mr. Young for writing this book.
