Genre: Fiction / Christian

 My 56 from the hardcover.

Now came the hardest part, waiting. Mack felt like he was moving in slow motion inside the eye of a hurricane of activity happening all around him.

I read this some time ago and decided to read it again before I see the movie.

Read on if you want to know more.

Synopsis

Mackenzie Allen Philips’ youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation, and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. 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.

Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change Mack’s world forever.

In a world where religion seems to grow increasingly irrelevant The Shack wrestles with the timeless question, “Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?” The answers Mack gets will astound you and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. You’ll want everyone you know to read this book!

My Teaser for today is from Comes A Horseman

by Robert Liparulo

Tease #1

The beast moved through the woods like the falling of night. The beast’s companions, one on either side, kept pace, agile and powerful.

Tease #2

“I think there’s someone in the house.”

“Are you sure?”

“I said I think.”

“Can you hear them? Are they moving around?”

“I heard….I think I heard nails…claws clicking on the floor.”

Synopsis

The ancients saw Death as a blazing figure on horseback, swift and merciless. Those facing the black chasm often mistook their pounding hearts for the beating of hooves.

Now, two FBI agents pursuing a killer from a centuries-old cult realize they have become his prey.
