I really loved this book! The story was so real and the characters are easy to relate to. I can imagine it would be hard to follow up after "The Shack!" But this one is pretty great too!
This book was a great read/listen but it didn't grab me from the very beginning the way The Shack did. I think that this book in some ways felt like it should have been the prequel to The Shack. The author is gifted, he is able to take complex ethical and moral issues and make them easy to digest. The story really drew me in around the midpoint, I became invested in the characters and was sorry to see it end.
Captivating, amazing, intriguing, insightful... All words too weak. Wonderfully demonstrates loving kindness of God! Wish every person could read this one. I loved The Shack but this one blew me away. Narrator was awesome!
You will laugh, cry, and long to be in the presence of God both during and after you read this book. I actually read it in print first, but to listen to the words and drink them in is amazing. Roger Mueller is an excellent narrator and did a beautiful job.
Personally I liked The Shack more, but then again The Shack was one of the top 5 books I have read. Cross Roads is a moving story of an "accomplished" man who found that none of it mattered. When he arrived at the cross roads, he made a tough choice and never looked back. I love the breakdown of racial, religious and age seperation/prejudices that we all experience at some level.
Once we let go of our preconceived ideas, we find a wonderful new reality that is alive and healing. Open these pages and find that message for yourself. You won't be sorry.
As usual, William Young has managed to captivated me with his story. He is an incredible writer. He has helped me look deep within myself and examine my relationship with my inner self and our wondered God.
Thank you, Mr. Young.
