How a self-published novel that envisions God as a zaftig African-American woman has sold millions of copies

The Shack, the story of a sad-sack Oregonian who meets God, was self-published by William P. Young in the spring of 2007. A year later, it had sold about 1 million copies. An excess of 10 million copies are in print today, and—strangely, in a marketplace where most successes have a bottle rocket's flight path—nothing, so far, has dropped back to Earth. As of this writing, The Shack has spent 105 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list and ranks ahead of Malcolm Gladwell's Blink and Sarah Palin's Going Rogue on Amazon. It dominated this spring's list of the Kindle's most-often-highlighted passages. If you happen to be seeking proof of divine intervention in the publishing business—which, by the way, could use it—there is little reason to look far beyond the raised-type, high-gloss cover of William P. Young's bizarre debut. ...

Although there were "religious" books and "secular" books, they thought, there were no titles in the middle ground, no "spiritual" novels that cast God as a path to happiness without serving up dogma.

In other words, plenty of "hot" and "cold" books, but as yet, no "luke-warm" books. Until now.

Love THC but I once saw an entire program which tried to explore, but was never able to conclude, the reason why Cain killed Able--without once mentioning 1 John 3:12.

Even the smartest secular folk tend to avoid examining evidence and principles that might make them look too bad in their own eyes. Gotta maintain that self-esteem, y'know.

Of course this book is filled with heretical views, and is the epitome of the Emergent, Post Modern craze that is taking over churches these days. But what astounds me are the people who attend churches where sound doctrine is preached, but they still rave about material such as this.
There is a lady in my church that will gravitate toward things like this in a heartbeat. We can preach and teach expositionaly and doctinaly and demonstrate the truth of what we are saying, but if PBS or the History channel airs one program in which they suggest that something other than what the Bible says is true, she will immediatly believe the Liberal scholars. Iv'e seen this in other conservative churches as well. Places where you would never believe anyone would have such views.
Possibly innate depravity manifests itself in unbelief and infidelity in some individuals more than others (of course in manifests itself in all poeple in some area). Or it's possible that the devil has his agents operating undercover. Whatever the cause, we are in a time of intense deception.
