I recently read The Shack by William P. Young. What a fantastic book! Basically, its about a guy named Mack who experiences a horrible family tragedy (the first 80 pages of the book). Three years later, he gets a letter from God to come meet him at the shack (which is where the tragedy occurred). Mack goes because he can't help himself. The ensuing conversations that take place at the shack are intense, thought-provoking, shocking and incredibly healing. There's a fair bit of controversy surrounding this book and some of its theology may be a bit off. But it definitely makes you think and its definitely worth reading. One of the best books I have read in a long time.
