I’ve finally obtained some copies of the speech that William P. Young gave when he was here in Fort Wayne. As the host pastor said, the speech was “Powerful.” I’m amazed at the insights this man has into the heart of God.
He, of course, discusses his book, “The Shack,” and all the God-things that fell into place causing it to be the phenomenon it is. He talks about some of the many testimonies of how this book has touched people, brought them closer to Father, and led people to Christ. None of this is done in a “bragging” fashion, but truly shows how God has brought it all together.
He then takes audience questions (mine is about the 3rd one), and also addresses some of the criticisms about his novel.
Finally, he journeys into some very personal territory with the testimony about his failed and restored marriage, which has some strong similarities to the story of my wife and myself.
All in all, a funny, touching, uplifting, and insightful experience, leading to a deeper understanding of God’s love and amazing grace.
As I said, I have extra copies of this recording. If you’re interested is listening to them, let me know.
