    I normally hate book titles that are a run-on the theme of "10 lies we believe about God", or "10 myths about Christianity". Ugh. Snippets of popular but heavily cliched epithets that only confirm what the reader probably already suspects, confirming their bias.This book is not that, thankfully. The...

    I didn't love The Shack by William Paul Young. I liked that it challenged me to think more deeply, but I fundamentally disagreed with a lot of the theological aspects about God as described by it. Truly the only way I made it through reading The Shack was to remind myself that it was a work of ficti...

    Wm. Paul Young takes twenty-six phrases that are found in many parts of traditional Christianity and shows why they are lies. Some of the phrases are commonly spoken verbatim, while others may not be said aloud very often, but are still strongly implied. A few of the phrases are twists on more tradi...

    Young, author of The Shack, gives us his thoughts on the character of God. He says he is not presenting certainty but is establishing a conversation over rearranging his theology. Each chapter contains a statement he once believed and then his exploration of his change in belief.While I do not agree...

    For those, like myself, who argued that Young's The Shack, was heretical and dangerous, this book provides verification of our concerns. There is nothing new here. It's kind of a baby boomer rebellion universalist work, surely written in response to the popularity of the Shack. But really, all the i...

    Simply put, this book denies essential truths of the Christian faith. He teaches universalism (that we don't need to be saved -- all will get there) (Ch.13), denies the reality of hell (Ch. 15), tinkers with the Fatherhood of God (as in The Shack) (Ch. 7), denies that sin separates us from God (Ch. ...

    Really a 1.5. Perhaps there are those out in the world who would find value and meaning to this book.As I had read the Shack and thoroughly enjoyed it I thought that I would enjoy Lies We Believe About God. Instead in Young’s most recent offering we are bombarded with his views of God and Chris...
