February book discussion: ‘The Shack’ by Wm. Paul Young

Mark your calendars for Grace Lutheran Church West Springfield’s next book discussion, taking place Sunday, Feb. 22, 2009, at 11:00 a.m. in the church parlor.

This month’s featured book is “The Shack” by Wm. Paul Young.  This book tells the story of Mack Phillips, who took his three children on a camping trip while his wife visited her sister.  While Mack went to help his two older children when their canoe overturned, his youngest daughter, Missy, was abducted by a known child predator.  Evidence of Missy turned up in an abandoned cabin and everyone knew the worst had happened. For the next four years, “a great sadness” fell over Mack and his family until a note from God showed up in his mailbox, inviting him back to the shack for the week-end.  What he finds there will change his life forever.
