The personal blog/website of author Jason Tesar, where he discusses books, movies, music, family-life, self-publishing, and the writing process.
I just downloaded your first book on my Kindle. I was wondering if you could upload a copy of the maps here on your blog. They are a little hard to see on the smaller kindle screen. I like the book so far. :)
Hey Jason, Yesterday I snagged all three books and am looking forward to reading them. I have a couple ahead of yours that Amazon wants me to review (after-all they send them to me for free) but yours will be following soon. Two things (besides the books) that caught my attention was that you call yourself a Christ-follower (I do the same since "Christian" doesn't mean what it used to) and that you gave The Shack two stars. One star would have been better but I'm guessing you were being kind. (I've boycotted any author who claims to be a Christian but believes in universalism.) Peace to you and your family. Thank you for writing these books and may God be glorified in all you do. Steve Taylor
Hi Steve,Thanks for your support; I hope you enjoy the books. I thought The Shack was an interesting concept, but for all the hype, I found the writing to be pretty basic. I don't know anything about the author, so I can't speak to his being a universalist. But I hope, over the course of my series, to show readers the enormous scope of God's love and sovereignty in a way that they might not otherwise be receptive to it.
Young is what is called a "Christian" universalist. Like Rob Bell he believes ALL are saved through Christ's death on the cross no matter what they believe, who they follow or how they live. Everyone goes to heaven when it's all done. The Shack clearly teaches this but most people think fiction has no power and therefore missed the deception by letting their guard down (or they agreed with the message). Either way the book was not of God. Steve Taylor
