The Shack, the movie

In 2007 William P. Young published The Shack, a book that rose quickly on the bestseller lists. Predictably it has become a movie. Wherever there is a dollar to be made Hollywood will be sure to be. It will come to the theatres March 3 and star Sam Worthington, Octavia Spencer, and Tim McGraw.

Tim Challies, who reviews many books and movies, wrote a worthwhile post on his blog,, explaining why he won't be going to see the movie nor write a review on it. He makes a compelling argument, and if you are at all inclined to see the movie, I would advise you first to read his comments. For my (similar) opinion on the book, which I will continue to hold, and even more strongly as it pertains to the movie, I would also refer you to a review I wrote of the book in October of 2008.
