The Shack – A parable of faith, family and forgiveness.

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.

Earlier this year, millions of people all over the world took this journey with Mack and saw The Shack at the cinema. The book, published in 2007, became a New York Times bestseller – and the film took nearly $100 million at the global box office. Now The Shack is available on Amazon as a digital download, and from 16th October you’ll be able to take it home on DVD.

This release includes a host of extras including a previously unseen scene and insights from author William Paul Young, director Stuart Hazeldine and other people behind the story. You can pre-order the DVD from Amazon, or from Kingsway using the discount code DAMARIS10.

This parable of faith, family and forgiveness is set to spark debate for a long time to come. If you want to dig deeper into The Shack’s themes and ideas with your church group, Damaris Media’s free resource is still available at
