Book to Movie: The Shack by Wm. Paul Young

I read The Shack a long time ago. Might have even been around the time it first published in 2007, because I cannot find a review for it on the blog -- which means I read it before I started this baby in 2010. I do remember that I enjoyed it, and I do recall being interested in seeing the movie when I first heard about it. That was awhile back, but now the movie is upon us!

Based on the New York Times best-selling novel, The Shack takes us on a father’s uplifting spiritual journey. After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips [Sam Worthington] spirals into a deep depression causing him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Despite his doubts, Mack journeys to the shack and encounters an enigmatic trio of strangers led by a woman named Papa [Octavia Spencer]. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.

And here's the trailer:
