Burning Down the Shack: How the ‘Christian’ Bestseller is Deceiving Millions


Millions have bought into the theology of Paul Young. The story of pain and redemption resonated with the public.

Is Young's worldview important or his theology that big a deal? James DeYoung thinks so. In “Burning Down the Shack,” DeYoung manages to shed important light on the implications of Young's pluralistic faith, and provides readers with a gripping counter-balance to the popular little volume that has spent many weeks on the best-seller lists.

Exploring the nature and character of God, from Scripture, DeYoung concludes that it is necessary to proceed carefully with The Shack, lest important truths be skewed and even jettisoned. Without being confrontational, DeYoung makes the case that dangers can lurk under the foundation.
