The other day I was reading around the blog of Paul Young, the author of The Shack. I really enjoyed The Shack, in fact last year I thought it was the best fiction book I read all year. I didn’t even know Paul Young had a blog until recently. I was excited to learn that he did have one because I enjoy his mind and writing style so much; so I started reading as much as I could.
It blew my mind!
It’s a story about the inner-thoughts of the disciple Andrew after someone comes up to him to ask him some clarifying questions about the parable of the Good Samaritan, which this person just heard Jesus tell to a group of people.
Depending on how fast you read, it will take up to 7 minutes. Please, take the time to read this and not just skim it. It’s so, so worth it. Powerful stuff.
What are your thoughts on our own inherent judgements about how fiction, truth and reality can all be one in the same?
