The Shack: "Can You Really Know God?"

The movie The Shack, based upon the best-selling book by the same title, is a work of fiction; it is a parable, not a theological treatise. Having said that, it does present theology for the very reason that it attempts to describe God. Who is this God who created us for a relationship with Himself? As opposed to a fictional account, God has revealed the truth about his character in the Scriptures and it is through them that we understand who God is and how we can come into a relationship with Him.
