The Shack by William P. Young is a featured and recommended Christian book tagged in Christian > Fiction > Mystery & Suspense. Vessel Project Featured books belong to a select group of Christian fiction and non-fiction books that I highly recommend.

When this book was first published, I was amazed at the reaction from the Christian community. I’ve read and reread this book many times. The story is absolutely beautiful.  As a Christian I certainly understand the evolution of the main characters idea of God. To take a man from anger and hate to love and forgiveness for the most heinous of crimes is a very difficult storyline to write. And the author walked the reader through it eloquently. So much so, I’ve reread the novel many times.”–Keiki Hendrix

About 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.

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”

About the Author

Young initially printed just fifteen copies of his book for friends who encouraged him to have it published. Unable to find a publisher, Young published the book himself in 2007; word-of-mouth referrals eventually drove the book to number one on the New York Times trade paperback fiction best-seller list in June 2008.
