Lies We Believe About God
Full Product Description
When it was first released, The Shack raised countless questions about how we see God. It provoked world-wide debate, and in response Wm Paul Young has created a conversational book of answers to those questions.
It is made for anyone looking to know God better, for anyone wanting an open and accessible read, rather than an extended sermon, and for anyone you wants to break down some of the boxes we all put God in.
Lies We Believe About God is a book which seeks to break down barriers to a loving relationship with God.
Exploring 28 different lies we have always been told, and told ourselves, about God, Wm Paul Young uses personal anecdotes, real discussions, and real responses to his bestselling book 'The Shack', to show a clearer picture of the creator of everything.
The lies explored show up how we, as people, try and make the ever-powerful God into what we want him to be: either God as conservative, or God as liberal.
Or even the lies about how God is, like any given parent, disappointed in us, and wants to punish the world.
Lies that keep people from knowing a loving and powerful God.
Wm Paul Young wants you to remember that, despite what many people claim or say, God is not what you thought. He's much bigger.
Lies We Believe About God by Wm Paul Young was published by Simon & Schuster in March 2017 and is our 4947th best seller. The ISBN for Lies We Believe About God is 9781471152399.

From the author of the twenty million plus copy bestselling novel The Shack and the New York Times bestsellers Cross Roads and Eve comes a compelling, conversational exploration of the wrong-headed ideas we sometimes have and share about God.
Wm. Paul Young has been called a heretic for the ways he vividly portrays God's love through his novels. In this deeply personal, nonfiction book, he shares twenty-eight commonly and sometimes seemingly innocuous things we say about God. Paul exposes these as lies that keep us from having a full, loving relationship with our Creator.
With personal anecdotes and sharing the compassion readers felt from the "Papa" portrayed in The Shack--soon to be a major film starring Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer--Paul encourages readers 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.
Explore 28 "lies we believe about God" such as...
- God loves us, but doesn't like us.
- God is a prude.
- God blesses my politics.
- God is not involved in my suffering.
- God is disappointed in me.
- And more!
