Burning Down the Shack


Some months ago, I expressed some concern over a new book that has seemingly swept the church world by storm. The book is called "The Shack," by Paul Young.

In this new critique, author James DeYoung analyzes The Shack through the lens of orthodox biblical theology, and finds it severely wanting. Among the controversial aspects of Paul Young's book is what appears to be a theme of universalism, something he denies according to James DeYoung.

I am reading the critique now, and will probably end up doing a radio program about it. And if it turns out as I suspect, James DeYoung has done the church a service in exposing yet again bad theology that undermines the Gospel instead of proclaiming it.
