Restoring the Shack
Author Paul Young discusses the themes, metaphors and theology that shaped his best-seller "The Shack," and understanding the relationship between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
How Paul's relationship with his missionary father, coupled with his abuse in boarding school, shaped his theology of a distant, angry God, leading to a life of perfectionist performance and the construction of a fake persona.
Paul reveals not only how he met and married his wife Kim, but how he dragged all his secrets and addictions into their marriage, ultimately leading to a disastrous affair and an 11 year process through which God rebuilt their relationship.
Paul shares the story of how The Shack went from beginning as 15 copies of a story written solely for his children as an expression of how God had changed his life to the phenomenon it is today.
Paul explores the metaphor of the Shack as the heart and soul of a broken human being; God doesn't sit up on high waiting for us to get our lives together, he comes within to heal.
Paul uses his mother's objections to the portrayal of God in "The Shack" as a starting point to explore the nature of God.
