The Shack Movie Review

Discover what wonders God’s Healing can bring in, “The Shack”

An encounter with Papa that results in a pursuit of healing and forgiveness. This is the journey that, “The Shack” is putting its viewers into. The Shack takes things to a whole new level and illustrates the Christian faith and the Trinity more vividly.

The story begins with the lead character, Mack Philips. He started out as a kid with a vulgar and abusive father. As he came into his senses and after repetitive abuse, he came into the monumental angst to kill his own father.

The Christian movie turned relatively smoother after this chapter as Mack then grows up and started with a happy family with three kids. Conflict, however, rose up because of a family camp outing that they never knew would tear them apart. In contrary to the outing’s purpose of being a leisure outlet for the family, a tragedy occurred as Missy, youngest daughter, was stolen while Mack was rescuing his other children from boating. Investigations went on and they found Missy raped by a man.

This took Mack into a depressive chapter. A family that once was whole was torn apart in front of the lead character. In the midst of this dark segment, Mack received a letter from ‘Papa’ inviting him to go to a shack. Though resistant, at first, he submitted to the invitation and that led him to a vivid and unforgettable journey of his life.

As Mack got into the shack, things started out to be a stiff and cold surrounding to a bright and vibrant lush surrounding, where he meets the Son. The Son then took him into a house where he met the rest of the troupe- the Father and the Holy Spirit. His encounter with the ‘I am’ revealed Mack at his most naked and vulnerable just like David.

The trinity took Him into three days of healing and forgetting. He went into different activities during his encounter experience in order for him to realize that the Lord isn’t just someone who makes things beautiful on the surface, but rather cooks up something so intricate from the inside and grows out to be a processed beautiful jewel. Mack also got answers to certain questions and doubts about God’s parity and the abundance of His love.

A whole roller coaster ride with ‘Papa’ allowed Mack to start fresh with his family. He continues to live his life in a fuller sense. This also allowed him to heal the scars left by his traumatic childhood experiences. The loss of his daughter Missy. Moving forward, he now held better grasp of his role in the patriarchy- to be a good and loving spouse and also to lead his children to be closer to the Heavenly Father.

This movie shows its viewers that with every hurting and resentment comes a fresh beginning in Christ. Brokenness doesn’t always lead to a dark path but instead can be beautified when broken in front of the Lord. The challenge just lies in how Christians live a life of surrendering after encountering Him.
