In this intimate conversation Paul Young, best-selling author of The Shack, speaks frankly about his experiences of tremendous loss, including sexual and physical trauma as a child of missionary parents, his struggles with mental health and suicidality, an extra-marital affair, and his journey through brokenness, reconciliation, and healing.
He also reflects on the genesis of The Shack, which he began as a story for his children, writing on legal pads, the backs of napkins, and garbage sacks during his daily train commutes to work. Today, The Shack has been translated into 50 languages and sold more than 20 million copies.
Most recently, hear how Paul responded to and survived the pandemic from a Hebrews 13:13 approach: "Encourage one another, as long as it is about today, so that you are not swept away by the deceitfulness of brokenness."
Since The Shack, Paul has authored several books, including Cross Roads, Eve, The Shack Reflections and Cross Roads Reflections, Lies We Believe About God, and most recently The Pastor: A Crisis, a novella he co-authored with Brad Jersak.
