Publisher's Summary

Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt. It is here that he has vivid interactions with others he assumes are projections of his own subconscious, but whose directions he follows nonetheless with the possibility that they might lead to authenticity and perhaps, redemption. The adventure draws Tony into deep relational entanglements where he is able to 'see' through the literal eyes and experiences of others, but is "blind" to the consequences of hiding his personal agenda and loss that emerge to war against the processes of healing and trust. Will this unexpected coalescing of events cause Tony to examine his life and realize he built a house of cards on the poisoned grounds of a broken heart? Will he also have the courage to make a critical choice that can undo a major injustice he set in motion before falling into a coma?

    "When was the last time you read a book that literally changed your life?"

    I stayed up all night to finish Cross Roads. I almost didn't read it, because it started out a little slow, but I am oh so thankful I did. I absolutely loved it! In fact, I can't decide whether to listen to it again right now, or re-read The Shack, or read another of his books called Eve. Oh this was so good!!

    "One off the very best books I have ever read"

    I read and loved The Shack many times but I hadn't even heard of Cross Roads. I have to say I loved it so much. This feels like a life changing read. I also really loved the narration. He's so good. Thank you again Paul Young.

    "Wonderful, Touching Story"

    I read The Shack before I became a Christian and it definitely influenced me to give my life to Jesus. I saw other reviewers say that this book is NOT The Shack. That's right, it's not. But it's just as well (if not better!) written and just as provocative. I love the personification of the Trinity. It makes me feel God more personally in my life. Performance was outstanding!

    "Enlighting!"

    I loved the story, enjoyed the funny parts however I found the voice of the little downs boy stereotypical and offensive, otherwise a good book!

    "Great Book"

    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!

    "Terrific listen, very different from Shack"

    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.

    "David Mississippi"

    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!
