The Beauty of Humanity – Paul Young

Paul assures us that God has a high view of humanity, as seen in the incarnation and stated in Karl Barth’s words: “God will not be God apart from us”. Paul celebrates this humanity, as he remembers those who have been his family and passed on, telling anecdotes of the beauty and brokenness our humanity embraces. Asking the question who is “us” and who is “them”, he draws the circle of God’s creative, self-giving love, and we can never be separated from it.

William Paul Young, author of The Shack, Cross Roads, The Shack Reflections and Cross Roads Reflections, 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.
