Movie: The Shack

Eleanor McCloskey, CND

The book came out in 2007 and proved a very popular read; now comes the film. People who see it will likely be moved by its passionate take on themes like grief and forgiveness. We feel, with Mack, his awful loss and sadness, as well as guilt. God seeks him out and at one point tells him, “You can get so lost in the pain, you don’t see me.” There’s a homey common sense way of presenting God as always present, always with us, and always loving us. Mack is open to hearing, learning, exploring. It’s a story. Stories get us thinking, and sharing. Stories can bring about change.
