William Paul Young's The Shack inspired me in ways that I will never be able to explain. This book is the most influentual and uplifting book I have ever read.
The Shack is about a man named Mackenzie, known as Mack, who looses his daughter to very unfortunate circumstances, and as he battles his pain with the loss of his daughter, he slowly begins to drift away from God. What he doesnt know is that through all his pain and suffering, God has his (or maybe her..) own plan to help him through it and bring God and Mack closer together in the most surprising place, also the most hurtful place, Mack has ever been.
I highly reccomend this book to anyone over the age of sixteen, because this book is very hard to comprehend and understand. Anyone who reads this book will instantly fall in love with the characters and learn a very important lesson through Macks own pain and hurt.
