William P. Young: The Shack Audio Book Summary
A bold debut novel by writer William P. Young, The Shack was originally a self-published work of trade fiction. Released in 2007, the novel sold over a million copies within a year, and ten million copies by the end of 2009, a remarkable feat for a self-published work.
As described by the author, the book is a metaphor for the mental dwellings we all construct that arise primarily from our own pain and suffering, and is representative of the places where we can become stuck, get hurt, and become damaged.
The book follows the story of Mack, an average American who lives in the Northwest with his children. He takes them on a camping trip, where his son almost drowns in a canoe accident. Seeing this, Mack dives into the water to rescue his son, leaving his daughter alone on shore. When he returns, having revived his son and saves his life, he finds his daughter has gone missing.
The police soon find the bloodied clothes of the girl, but not her body. Months later, Mack has returned home and receives a note to go back to the shack where the girl was killed. Once there, he sees an incarnation of the Holy Trinity, with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit appearing to him as different persons, and revealing to him where to find the girl’s body.
Mack leads the police to the location indicated by God, and there they find the girl’s body, and are able to collect enough evidence to find the killer and incarcerate him.
The Shack is a story about overcoming tragedy and finding help in Christianity.
