William Paul Young

William Paul Young thought the way he grew up was 'normal' but he thinks most would probably agree that his history and journey have been a bit unusual. He was the eldest of four, born May 11th, 1955, in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Canada, but the majority of his first decade was lived with his missionary parents in the highlands of Netherlands New Guinea (West Papua), among the Dani, a technologically stone age tribal people. These became his family and as the first white child and outsider who never spoke their language, he was granted unusual access into their culture and community. Although at times a fierce warring people, steeped in the worship of spirits and even practicing ritualistic cannibalism, they also provided a deep sense of identity that remains an indelible element of his character and person.

By the time William flew away to boarding school at age 6, he was in most respects a white Dani. In the middle of a school year, his family unexpectedly returned to the West. His father worked as a Pastor for a number of small churches in Western Canada and by the time he graduated, he had already attended thirteen different schools. He paid his way through Bible College working as a radio disc jockey, lifeguard and even a stint in the oil fields of northern Alberta. William spent one summer in the Philippines and another touring with a drama troupe before working in Washington D.C. at Fellowship House, an international guest house. Completing his undergraduate degree in Religion, he graduated summa cum laude from Warner Pacific College in Portland, Oregon.

William Paul Young has always been a writer, whether songs, poetry, short stories or newsletters; never for public consumption but for friends and family. While he has extensively written for business, creating web content, business plans, white papers etc.

The Shack was a story written for his six children, with no thought or intention to publish. It is as much a surprise to him as to anyone else that he was an 'author'.

Samenvatting

With 18 million copies sold worldwide, THE SHACK is an international bestseller that explores life's toughest questions through the gripping story of one man's struggle to find answers to his suffering. Mack's youngest daughter, Missy, was abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later, still trapped in his great sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack. Against his better judgement Mack arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon. What he finds there will change his life forever. THE SHACK wrestles with the timeless question, 'Where is God in a world so filled with unspeakable pain?' Mack's experiences when he faces up to his darkest nightmares will astound you, and perhaps transform you as much as it did him. This is the kind of book you'll want to tell everyone about. Millions have discovered it already - now it's your turn.

Recensie(s)

Reading THE SHACK during a very difficult transition in my life, this story has blown the door wide open to my soul. * Wynonna Judd, Recording Artist * This story reads like a prayer - like the best kind of prayer, filled with sweat and wonder and transparency and surprise. If you read one work of fiction this year, let this be it. * Mike Morrell, Zoecarnate.com * THE SHACK is the most absorbing work of fiction I've read in many years. My wife and I laughed, cried and repented of our own lack of faith along the way. THE SHACK will leave you craving for the presence of God. * Michael W. Smith, Recording Artist * 'Dangerous, dangerous way to do off-the-hook theology, I love it! It's not just what happens when a theologian becomes storyteller: this is what happens when a survivor who has experienced God decides to tell a story. This should be required reading in spirituality/theodicy classes everywhere. The Shack will quickly become a modern classic, and it will inspire imitators. But very few will match the competence of this work.' * Siku * 'By far the most captivating, deliciously written and theologically refreshing page turner of a novel I have ever read.' * Gerald Coates, Pioneer * 'This is the most heart-warming, inspirational story I have read in decades. If you only read one book in the next year....read THE SHACK' * J.John * This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress did for his. It's that good! * Eugene Peterson * Bunyanesque ... bold, imaginative, humane and funny. * Church Times * 'Clearly the book is speaking loud and clear to a lot of people' * The Independent * 'Brilliant! One of the most faith-enhancing books I have ever read' * Bear Grylls *
