Will Christians Support “The Shack” Movie When It Hits Theaters This Friday?

The film version of William Paul Young’s best-selling book, The Shack hits the big screen Friday, March 3. The novel tells the story of a grieving father’s encounter with God.

His faith was shaken after a terrible tragedy. And he is left wondering how a good God could allow such a nightmare to happen.

The book captured the hearts of millions in 2007, but  it also sparked controversy and criticism. Some of those of those observations are resurfacing ahead of the film’s release.

The Shack’s author and the film’s stars, Octavia Spencer and Sam Worthington, allowed CBN News on the set in Vancouver for an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the production.

Oscar winner Octavia Spencer plays the role of God in the film, affectionately called Papa.

In between takes, Spencer told CBN News, “There is a beautiful journey that you have to take, that I realize now when you take on the role of God. It just shows you how human you are.”
