Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Shack is a one-of-a-kind invitation to journey to the very heart of God. Through my tears and cheers, I have been indeed transformed by the tender mercy with which William Paul Young opened the veil that too often separated me from God and from myself. With every page, the complicated dos and don’ts that distort a relationship into a religion were washed away as I understood Father, Son, and Holy Spirit for the first time in my life.” Patrick M. Roddy, ABC News Emmy Award–winning producer
“Roger Mueller’s clear, gentle voice characterizes Mac’s family with high-spirited joy and laughter. His portrayal of Missy’s animated excitement makes her especially believable. His polished performance of grief-stricken Mac brings tears. With empathy and sensitivity, Mueller captures the mysterious voices of those who have invited him to the now abandoned, yet transformed, cabin in the wilderness. This compelling fantasy explores themes of love, loss, and blame.” AudioFile
“Don’t miss this!  If there’s a better book out there capturing God’s engaging nature and His ability to crawl into our darkest nightmare with his love, light, and healing, I’ve not seen it. For the most ardent believer or newest spiritual seeker, The Shack is a must-read.” Wayne Jacobsen, author of So You Don’t Want to Go to Church Anymore

Author Bio: William Paul Young

William Paul Young 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 pastured 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 met and married Kim. Together they celebrate “the wastefulness of grace” with their six children, two daughters-in-law, and now two grandchildren.
