The Shack

SO I watched The Shack!

Weird movie. Bad theology.

If you're going to make a movie out of this book...I guess this is a good adaptation. But the book doesn't seem particularly cinematic to me.

Here's my review

Robin and I went to see it Monday. I read the book back in 2008 after a good friend gave it to me as a college graduation present. The book was odd but didn't offend me at all. I feel the same way about the film.

If one goes into it expecting a concise definition/depiction of God then I can see how it will ruffle feathers. The main theme I got from it is that God is always good, He loves us, and He works through all things.


Of course, I went into it expecting a movie and not a theological treatise. I have seen a couple of folks who lean Reformed really tear into it. Maybe that's why it doesn't bother me as much. I don't know. I wouldn't have problems suggesting this movie as long as people understand it is just a movie.
