The Shack Wil­liam Paul Young

Esquire (Singapore) - - BOOKS -

Call­ing this a highly con­tro­ver­sial novel would be an un­der­state­ment, but that is all the rea­son to dive into it. Macken­zie Philips, bro­ken and bit­ter over the bru­tal mur­der of his daugh­ter in a shack, re­ceives an invit­ing note from God ap­par­ently, to meet him at the same shack. To see God as a black woman among other un­likely por­tray­als of the Trin­ity, you will close the book ei­ther lov­ing or hat­ing it, but surely left with an al­tered view on higher pow­ers.
