Mackenzie Allen Phillips' 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 this 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 one wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare. What he finds there will change his life forever.

I enjoyed the narrator. I enjoyed the story. It made me cry one minute and smile the next.
I wouldn't say it kept me in the edge of my seat, but it was a joy to listen to.
Roger Mueleer is good at bringing the characters to life.
Overcoming sorrow through faith
The unusual portrayal of God being both Father and Mother
There were so many but when the Holy Spirit and Mac were in the garden and how the garden with all the beauty amongst the weeds was actually Mac's life! Also when Mac was in the cave judging God.
I did not care for his voice or his lack of emphasis in his voice. Wish it was narrated by Max Mc'Clean
Jesus! Papa! Sarayu! All are one so them as one
Ja, in afrikaans
Ja, kon nie wag om te hoor wat volgende gaan gebeur nie.
Toe Mackenzie sy Klein dogtertjie weer sien.
Baie goed geskryf en voorgelees. Knop-in-die-keel oomblike in die verhaal.. Dit laat mens nader aan God voel.
The way that I was written draws you in from the very beginning. The fact that it was originally was written for his children only, to me it's a great honor to be able to read something that he only wrote for them to begin with.
For me I truly felt like I was there in the shack with papa the whole time and it was amazing.
No I have not listen to any other of his performances.
Papa, because I just want to be in the presence of God even more than I already am.
Yes because you get more than just the book you get an hour listening to different people talking to the other
Cross roads because it was written by the same author
I like all of them none of them are not my favorite
The thing that made me cry was when missy died and when they discovered Missy's body
This is an awesome book. I learned a lot.
Fascinating story but the beginning is a little difficult -- being a parent's worst nightmare. Loved his concepts of God. Now I want to use "Poppa God." I just wish I had more understanding at some points. Maybe having the written version to go back over vs audible might help with that. Listened while driving, sometimes also difficult while crying. Very touched by story.
Although this book is fiction, it will resonate with anyone that has experienced emotional pain. Through the emotional journey and spiritual healing of the books main character, it causes those that read it to reflect inward and heal as well.
The reader did a great job, a little overly dramatic at points for my liking but great all the same.
I like the authors interviews and afterward. It helps us to understand the symbolism within the story.
In Summary: Worth every minute you spend listening to it.
This is a beautifully written story of a man whose faith is tested when something devastating happens to his child. The author's rationalization of God's Trinity is the best I have ever read. I completely enjoyed the powerful relationships that were built in this book. I hope they make a movie out of it. This book left me inspired to get closer to my Savior.
