I may be one of only a few people I know that haven’t read William Paul Young’s novel (“parable”) The Shack, and I missed him when he spoke in Hamilton at the beginning of the year. However, a friend recently suggested I listen to the podcast of his Hamilton talk, so over the last couple of days I have. I found it very moving in places, and insightful with respect to the novel, which I will now read.
The podcast is in two parts – an introduction by young, and a ‘conversation’ in which he responds to questions from the audience.
“…William Paul Young shares the personal story behind ‘The Shack’, unpacking where it came from and the choice of imagery behind it…”
I think it’s worth a listen, so if you’re interested the podcast can be found here. There are some rich human insights in it, plus there's heart.
