What's with The Shack?

Every few years, a book is written that captures our attention: not just the attention of 'church people' but of those who are spiritually hungry beyond the church walls. The Shack by Wm. Paul Young is such a book. Some Christian leaders are telling their people to avoid this book; while others like Eugene Peterson call it a modern “Pilgrim’s Progress.” I believe this is an important book that should be discussed in the light of Scripture. If you or a friend have doubts about God’s goodness or have been turned off by organized religion, I invite you to join me in exploring the Bible as it pertains to The Shack during our upcoming Fall preaching and Lifegroup series at St. John's Presbyterian Church, beginning Sunday, Sept. 13th. Call 310-477-2513 for more information; or visit our website at
