Is ‘The Shack’ Heresy? William Young Responds to His Critics

In part 4 and 5 of my extended interview with William P Young, author of the phenomenally popular book The Shack, Paul and I explore some of the criticisms that have been levelled at his work. In this segment you’ll hear Paul respond to some of the criticism, in particular:

  • Whether Jesus made mistakes.
  • Whether portraying God the Father as an African American woman breaks the second Comandment to not create idols.
  • Whether his portrayal of God is demeaning.

Open House Volume 2 has the full transcript.
