The Bee Stings ‘The Shack”- And Yes, It is Still Heresy

Okay, internet, check this out: a mathematician in Germany calculated something that will literally blow your mind. 

He figured out that if you lay all twenty million sold copies of William Young’s book The Shack end-to-end around the equator—assuming flat land all the way around and a standard paperback book height of 6.7″—the book would still contain a ridiculous amount of heresy.

“It’s hard for our minds to comprehend the volume of something like twenty million copies of a book,” the professor said in a video posted to YouTube. “So it’s a fun mental exercise to put things in a context that our brain can process, like how many times a completely heretical book can circle the earth.”

The math genius also provided several other interesting tidbits about The Shack, such as the fact that if you stacked all copies of the bestseller on top of one another, it would still contain copious amounts of blatant and unbiblical statements about essential Christian doctrines like the nature of God, salvation, and the Trinity.

Mind=blown!

And yes, heresy lies therein.

  1. I’m interested that the Bee and (my impression is) you also find much “heresy” in The Shack, I was surprised when a conservative Systematic Theologian I know (who writes on trinitarian topics) set the book for discussion in an intro class. Chatting with him he saw less heresy in the book than in most attempts to talk about the godhead in more conventional but equally accessible ways (e.g. sermons popular books etc.).
