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?

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!
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.
Thank you Paul Young for your diligence in perfecting your craft! You have given us a tangible glimpse of one facet of this stunning diamond we call life attempting to grasp an outrageously beautiful God.
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.
I wanted a book that was uplifting and spiritually encouraging. This book fit the bill. It had a good story line with a few surprises. The narrator did a great job. My only criticism is typical of many Christian fiction stories and that is that it was too hokey at times.
No, it's just easier for me,with my busy schedule, to listen to audio books.
