Answering Defenses of The Shack: Part 1


13 Heresies of The Shack by Michael Youssef (from Way of the Master Radio)

Many think, or know someone who thinks, highly of The Shack.  Despite this book being thoroughly anti-Christian, several defenses are offered to justify reading this book.

Here we address and refute what we believe are such common defenses; may the Spirit of Christ open the eyes of those in bondage to this extremely dangerous novel.

Charts: The Shack versus the Bible: Part 1

This enormously popular—and dangerous—book by William P. Young has swept through all denominations, leaving in its wake a multitude of disciples.  It has seduced professing Christians—even those whom you would least suspect—into embracing some of the most heretical doctrines ever.  Again and again, readers report that The Shack has profoundly changed their view of God.

And in time, The Shack may not only seduce readers, but moviegoers as well.  There has been talks of making The Shack a feature film.

In light of this tragedy, we have begun a series of posts with charts that contrast The Shack‘s dangerous teachings with the Bible.
