About this ebook

From the author of the bestselling novel The Shack and the New York Times bestsellers Cross Roads and Eve comes a compelling, conversational exploration of twenty-eight assumptions about God—assumptions that just might be keeping us from experiencing His unconditional, all-encompassing love.

In his wildly popular novels, Wm. Paul Young portrayed the Triune God in ways that challenged our thinking—sometimes upending long-held beliefs, but always centered in the eternal, all-encompassing nature of God’s love.

Now, in Wm. Paul Young’s first nonfiction book, he invites us to revisit our assumptions about God—this time using the Bible, theological discussion, and personal anecdotes. Paul encourages us to think through beliefs we’ve presumed to be true and consider whether some might actually be false.

Expounding on the compassion fans felt from the “Papa” portrayed in The Shack—now a major film starring Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer—Paul encourages you to think anew about important issues including sin, religion, hell, politics, identity, creation, human rights, and helping us discover God’s deep and abiding love.

All of my life I've been religious now it is time to check out the alternatives starting to study more about religion and being in religions and wondering if really this is what God is about study and show thyself approved no more hearsay or information based on face value so yes the book may be good or it may not be but I guess I'll find out my own views only when I read it...lolol.... lack of knowledge and You Shall Perish but the truth will set you free.. and seek and you shall find.

I definitely would not recommend this book. It goes against the Bible and basic beliefs of Christianity. Please don't look to this man for answers. You will end up lost.

I've been brought up in a Christian community that I discarded because it never felt right in my heart. I was an agnostic most of my life until recently when I started reading and listening to Paul. The man changed my life and couldn't think of a better book to recommend to another person! The writing is heartfelt and pure, I can feel the love in his work.
