Avatar , al igual que el cine en general, nos permite acercarnos al misterio del hombre, evidentemente no con un método filosófico o científico. Lo hace con su lenguaje específico: la narración (bastante sencilla), las imágenes (impresionantes) y la poesía (muy presente). Avatar impacta y llega al espectador especialmente a través de la vista y el oído, la sensibilidad y la emotividad. No es casualidad que empiece con un hombre real que abre los ojos y termine con un hombre nuevo que abre los ojos. El mensaje se nos entrega de forma intuitiva e inmediata, a través de los sentidos, pero esto no quiere decir que deja de lado la razón y la libertad del espectador. Este libro intenta profundizar un poco más, desde una perspectiva cristiana, en el contenido de Avatar que apunta a dos crisis actuales, una más visible: la crisis ecológico-energética y la actitud imperialista de Occidente, y otra más velada: la crisis de valores espirituales.

The book is an analysis of Lois Lowry’s work, The Giver, and Phillip Noyce’s movie (2014).  The novel recounts, in third person, the life of a boy named Jonas, who lives in a dystopian society of the near future that reminds us of Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. This society has eliminated pain and strife by literally chemical means, a plan that has also removed emotional depth from human life. When children reach adolescence, they are assigned a profession according to their talents and skills. Jonas is selected to be the "Receiver of Memory", the person who stores all the memories of the past, in case the ruling oligarchy needs help in making decisions for which nobody has any more experience. Training with the "Giver" will be vital and traumatic so that Jonas can understand what society really is and how humanity has reached the stage it is in.

The film "The shack”, like the novel written by the Canadian  William Paul Young, is a work of fiction that tells a strong, hard, but positive story that deals with issues such as redemption, healing, justice, forgiveness … Deeply, he looks for a way to make us understand that God is LOVE through the narration of a spiritual journey. It is not a treatise on theology and does not want to define the Trinity or God. It could be compared to a parable that introduces us into the heart of God and asks us: "Don’t you think that God is good? Don’t you trust Him? Don’t you believe that God is part of your life, that he accompanies you and that life with him acquires meaning?
