Based on the New York Times best-selling novel with over 22 million copies in print worldwide, The Shack takes us on a father’s transformative journey that will show him the ultimate truth about love, loss, and forgiveness.
The Shack takes us on a father’s uplifting spiritual journey.
After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips [Sam Worthington] spirals into a deep depression causing him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa [Octavia Spencer]. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.
Summit Entertainment presents a Gil Netter / Windblown Media production.
In 2010, R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, described The Shack as a “wake-up call for evangelical Christianity,” and that its story reflected “a theology that is unconventional at best, and undoubtedly heretical in certain respects.”
He also blamed its popularity among Evangelicals on their ignorance of “basic theological knowledge.”
Young, who originally wrote the story for his family without intending to publish it, defended The Shack’s message and theology shortly after it was released.
“I absolutely am convinced that this is a God-thing, that God is the One stirring this all up, challenging us to rethink and entertain growing deeper in a relationship with Him rather than pursuing our independence”.
In 2011, Young added that “part of my journey is to say that the soul of the human being must be a massively intricate, wonderful creation that God has a respect for in ways that we do not and that leaves a huge amount of space to go explore. He (Jesus) didn’t come to start a new religion. Jesus is not the ‘founder of Christianity.’ He came to destroy religious thinking by introducing relationship – and relationship always moves you away from control, which is a major theme in both The Shack and Cross Roads, and into the mystery of relationship.”
