Four years later, in the midst of his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note--apparently from God--inviting him back to that shack for a weekend.

Paul was born a Canadian and along with three younger siblings was raised among a stone-age tribe by his missionary parents in the highlands of what was New Guinea (West Papua). The family returned to Canada where his father pastored a number of churches for various denominations. By the time he entered Canadian Bible College, Paul had attended a dozen schools. He completed his undergraduate degree in religion at Warner Pacific College in Portland, Oregon. While in Oregon, Paul attended seminary and worked on staff at a large church where he met and married Kim. Together they celebrate the wastefulness of grace with their six children, two daughters-in-law, and now two grandchildren. His worldwide phenomenon, The Shack, was written for his six children, with no thought or intention to publish. He says "It is as much a surprise to me as to anyone else that I am now an author.
