The God of ‘The Shack’: William Young Responds
In part 3 of my interview with The Shack author William P Young, Paul and I discuss:
- The need to go back to the place of our pain and grief to find God.
- Why Paul presents God the Father as an African American woman named ‘Papa’ and the Holy Spirit as an Asian-looking woman named ‘Sarayu’.
- The misconceptions about God The Shack tries to address.
- Why God is all about relationship rather than religion.
The full transcript of this conversation is available in Open House Volume 2.
Q: What misconceptions have you held in the past about God? How do you feel about the religion-verses-relationship idea?
