Ken Silva of Apprising Ministries has posted a page of his thoughts about The Shack Bible Project. Go check it out and tell me what you think. Ken’s response to my work is less than positive, but I don’t begrudge anyone their opinion. I’m aware that what I’m doing here is pretty far off the pattern most people are used to. Ken also has some critical thoughts to share about Paul Young and The Shack itself, and others such as Rob Bell, Richard Foster, Brian McLaren, and Dallas Willard.
ONE THING: Ken indicates in his review that my identity is hidden. And he’s a little right, really; I really don’t use my name a lot, so in the interest of transparency:
My name is John Stonecypher. There’s lots of info about me on Facebook; I’d love to friend anybody who stops by. I often just go by “ShackBibleGuy” because 1). This project is important to me, important enough that I don’t want it to be ABOUT me, if you know what I mean, and 2). I’m not terribly famous, so the name ‘John Stonecypher’ is really not much of a draw at the box office.
