sheridan-voseyshack-promoI thought I’d heard some good stuff from Wm. Paul Young, author of The Shack on Drew Marshall’s various interviews with him, but Australian Sheridan Voysey, host of Open House on Hope 103.2* contains some great clarification on those issues in the books which have caused controversy.   Voysey clearly doesn’t buy-in entirely on every aspect of the popular title, but is also very affirming on most of the book’s content.   On his part, Young is clearly at home paul-young1on this interview and gives solid scripture background for elements of the story.   This is one of the few downloads I listened to twice.

You can download the podcast or listen online here.

*103.2?  That last number is even, not odd.   Does Australia use a different FM frequency spacing than we do in North America?   That can’t be right; because we listen to 96.5 in Brisbane online.  That’s an odd number in the decimal place.  What’s their system?

NOTE: The article Paul Young refers to in the interview, “The Beauty of Ambiguity (Mystery)” is available on his webpage, (American spelling of rumor) and can be linked here.
