‘Cross Roads’: A Writing Career Built On Faith

Five years ago, Paul Young was working three jobs outside Portland, Ore., when he decided to write a Christian tale of redemption for friends and family.
He went down to an Office Depot and printed off 15 copies of the story he called The Shack.

… it eventually caught the attention of two California-based pastors. They took it to 26 different publishers but got rejected each time.
So the pastors set up their own publishing company and started a whispering campaign among churches.

Today, The Shack has sold more than 18 million copies.
