Wm. Paul Young

Paul is author of The Shack, Cross Roads,The Shack Reflections, Cross Roads Reflections, Eve and recently released non-fiction, Lies We Believe about God. Watch his interview with Oprah! He was born a Canadian and raised among a stone-age tribe by his missionary parents in the highlands of what was Netherlands New Guinea (now West Papua). He suffered great loss as a child and young adult, and now enjoys the “wastefulness of grace” with his growing family in the Pacific Northwest. Facts never tell real stories. The journey has been both incredible and unbearable, a desperate grasping after grace and wholeness, the pain of trying to adjust to different cultures, of life losses that seemed too staggering to bear, of living with an underlying volume of shame so deep that it constantly threatened any sense of sanity, of dreams not only destroyed but obliterated by personal failure, of hope so tenuous that only the trigger seemed to offer a solution. A few facts also do not speak to the potency of love and forgiveness, the arduous road of reconciliation, the surprises of grace and community, of transformational healing and the unexpected emergence of joy.



Dr. Brad Jersak

Brad teaches NT, Patristics and Classics in Contemplation at Westminster Theological Centre (UK). He is editor in chief of "Christianity Without Religion" magazine, and is the author of many books, the most recent being, A More Christlike God and the children's book, Jesus Showed Us. Brad lives in Abbotsford and is married to Eden, his wife of 30 years with whom he raised 3 sons and pastored for twenty years. Today Brad is a much sought after teacher/speaker and theologian who shares his deep research and inspired messages in a fresh and easy to understand way. He is willing to tred into new and ancient paths where he uncovers the life-changing paths of 'listening prayer' and the Beautiful Gospel. Brad is a friend to many, a lover of contemplation and justice, and has walked a deep road of personal healing and wellness.
