“The Shack” is a movie based on the book by the same title written by Christian author, William P. Young. After suffering a family tragedy, Mack Phillips spirals into a deep depression that causes him to question his innermost beliefs. Facing a crisis of faith, he receives a mysterious letter urging him to an abandoned shack 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. Through this meeting, Mack finds important truths that will transform his understanding of his tragedy and change his life forever.
Today on the show, Kevin has Greg Koukl, an apologist and president of Stand to Reason. He is here to discuss the possibly controversial theology presented in the movie. Mainly, is it biblical to depict God as three distinct people and to depict God the Father as a woman? The answer may surprise you. Greg also shares some of his incredible apologetics knowledge and presents arguments and answers to some of the tough questions in Christianity.
