The Shack movie, in theaters March 3, is based on one of the best-selling novels of all time and is a modern-day fictional parable that explores the nature of God, His goodness and love, the power of forgiveness and how He helps us deal with pain.

This Spring, the millions of people who read The Shack novel, and the millions of people who have already watched the movie trailer will be going to the theater and will be talking about the film. As a church, the story of The Shack provides you with an excellent opportunity to build bridges to moviegoers and people in your community who are curious about the film and invite them to your church to learn what the Bible says about God and his love.

FAQs

Q: How does The Shack film differ from the book?

A: There are differences between the film and the book. The film was adapted from the best-selling book with the intent of showing the main message of the story, which is an invitation to experience the ultimate truth about love, loss, and forgiveness. View the trailer to get an idea of the film’s content. Many pastors and ministry leaders endorsed the film (see outreach.com/TheShack for a short list of these endorsements).
The Shack movie campaign resources are based on the film, not based directly on the book.

Q: Is The Shack movie family friendly?

A: This film is not yet rated, although it does tell the story of Mack Phillips, whose father abused him as a young boy, and whose young daughter is murdered. The message of healing and hope is powerful throughout the film, yet it is best to consider the topics addressed when deciding if children should view the movie.

Q: How do I purchase group tickets or a movie theater buy out?

A: Call Outreach at 800.991.6011

Q: Is The Shack Official Movie Church Kit available as a digital download?

A: Yes, the digital version will be ready to order late January 2017.

Q: Can my church stream our service that includes The Shack movie clips?

A: Yes, as long as the service is not downloadable, you can livestream the service where the clips are used. You cannot sell DVD recordings of your service that include The Shack movie clips or post them to a public website (e.g. YouTube, Vimeo) or show the clips on television. The clips are copyright protected and selling them violates that copyright.

Q: Will The Shack movie resources be available in Spanish?

A: At this time, only materials in English are available.

Leader Quotes

 

"Without any bit of exaggeration or hyperbole, there has never been a film that has captured these [faith] questions—in a matter of two hours—with answers that are biblically contextualized without being explicit." (watch testimony)
- Reverend Samuel Rodriguez, President, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference

"Perhaps the most profound description of who God is, how He works and what faith and life is about, ever put into a film. Deeply moving and inspiring."
- Joel Houston, Hillsong United

"It is the most powerful movie I've ever seen. The Passion showed us 'what' but The Shack showed us the ‘why'."
- Pastor Anthony "Shep" Crawford, Experience Christian Ministries

"A beautiful and deep reflection of God's redemptive story. Painful in a good way. It had a way of touching on deep and inner places of my heart."
- Kent Munsey, Pastor, City Church (Hillsong Chicago)

"The most profound, beautiful and accurate portrayal of God and his relationship with us ever produced on film! I will passionately promote and recommend The Shack when it is released in theaters."
- Dan Smith, Pastor, Vineyard Community Church

"I can't wait to unleash this thing."
- Pastor Ray Johnston, Bayside Church

"This film is a very worthy attempt at exploring the most mysterious truths in a way which illuminates both issues (forgiveness and the Trinity) and many other aspects of the human experience."
- Patrick Langrell, Director of Young Adult Outreach, Archdiocese of LA

"Why would God permit things to happen? How can you tell me how to justify this all-powerful God... without any bit of exaggeration or hyperbole, there has never been a film that has captured these questions in a matter of two hours with answers that are biblically contextualized without being specific and speaks to a loving, caring, redemptive God who did not orchestrate the evil or the pain or the suffering but will be there to provide comfort and redemption and grace. And the end game will always be in our favor."
- Pastor Sam Rodriguez, New Season and president NHCLC

"Wow is a gross understatement! This film does the best teaching and guiding on a personal journey to forgiveness, faith and forward-driven healing that I have ever experienced. This film should be a requirement for citizenship on earth!"
- Marlow Saunders, Valencia Christian Center, Sr. Pastor

"This was the best movie I have ever seen. The movie answered so many questions about Christianity that I had. It showed true emotions that we as humans have, and answered so many unanswered questions I had. Best movie ever."
- Robert Wooten - Wooten & Associates

"The most accurate biblical representation of the deity of God I've ever seen...this movie will preach all day long! Hollywood finally got it right."
- Bishop IV Hilliard, Houston TX
