William Paul Young talks about the breakout success of his novel "The Shack," a book he originally wrote for his children (interview aired on The 700 Club).
A friend has been talking for this book a great deal. My wife has the book and I need to read it. However, I am allowing her to read it first. If she does not pick it up within the next few days, I will grab it and read it.
This book has "exploded" on the internet and the blog world. Each day, I come across a review of the book and people who are applauding it or people who are calling him a heretic. There are Christians that are lamblasting him for leading people down to a universalism view and other laughing at the notion.
