I saw this post on my friend, Laura’s site, yesterday and I had to share this link with you. It is Paul Young, author of The Shack, sharing at a church in Atlanta. . . sort of an interview type setting, but mostly him talking. He tells his personal story and how the book came to be. It is INCREDIBLE!! I loved The Shack when I read it. I know lots of other people who loved it, also. But I know some people who would not read it – too much controversy – hearing that it was filled with heresy, bad theology, etc. That tickled me. The book is a FICTIONAL book. And the writer, as you will see and hear, wrote the book for his six children and the rest just happened. I won’t go into too much, b/c it is better if you can watch it for yourself. The discussion is a little lengthy. . . so if you can do dishes or laundry while you listen, you won’t feel so guilty for spending the time to do so! But if you have ever been skeptical of the book, what it is about, or if you loved it like I did, you NEED to listen to this! It will bless you to hear how God works in the lives of those he loves!
