Originally self-published by the author, William P. Young, over 15 million copies have been sold! It has created controversy in religious circles, and had thousands of reviews written. (4,849 on Amazon) It's average "score" is 4 out of 5 stars. I didn't know what all the fuss was about, or much about the book at all until last week when I read it.
It had a HUGE impact on me! Brad read it when I was finished, and now he is re-reading and highlighting sections.
Please remember that this is FICTION, but thought-provoking.
The story takes place in Oregon, where the main character, Mack's, daughter is abducted on a family camping trip. Evidence finds she has been murdered at a rural shack. 4 years later, Mack gets a note in his mailbox, inviting him back to "the shack" for the weekend, apparently written by "God". He goes, and spends the weekend with three fascinating characters who represent the trinity.
I won't say more, but I am REALLY glad I read this book. I think anyone, regardless of religion (or lack of), or belief system would find something to think about, or at least find fuel for an interesting discussion.
Have you read it? What did YOU think?
