William Paul Young: See God In a New Way

New York Times best-selling author of "The Shack," William Paul Young shares his inspiration behind the book and how it has allowed people to see their relationship with God in a new way. "The Shack" was initially written as a Christmas gift to his children on the train commuting to one of his three jobs, with no intention of publishing it. The book's success led to a motion picture starring Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer and Tim McGraw. However, the author's journey to success was riddled with a lifetime of sadness and mistakes. A victim of sexual abuse as a child, Paul says his quest for unconditional love drove him to have an affair that nearly tore his family apart. "I didn't confess? I got caught," Paul says of the destructive affair, a moment of exposure that served as a wake-up call for the husband and father of six. Paul says the biggest gift "The Shack" has given him is an invitation to hear other people's stories. Paul also discusses his thought-provoking and controversial book, "Lies We Believe About God."

Pico Iyer: The Art of Stillness

Best-selling author and travel writer Pico Iyer discusses the benefits of bringing stillness into our lives. Pico, a lifelong traveler who has journeyed all over the world, from India to Ethiopia to Cuba to Kathmandu, realized our lives are crowded, chaotic and noisy. He says there has never been a greater need to slow down, tune out and give ourselves permission to be still. Pico walked away from a successful career writing for Time magazine in New York City, where he worked on the 25th floor and had a nice apartment on Park Avenue. "I was making a great living, but that's not the same as making a life," Pico says. In his book "The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere," he writes about the unexpected adventure of staying put and that sitting quietly in a room just might be the ultimate adventure. Pico also reveals how we can take our feelings of home with us wherever we go.
