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?

    "Another good Young book"

    This book, as the first, the Shack, makes you think and wonder. What if, and could that be the way. It is a thought provoking book and good, good, good.

    Story
    "If you read; The Shack...then get ready for Cross"

    This is a story of redemption. You work out the past with Tony/Anthony through this book. The reader does a great job! All the different voices and attitudes. If you read/listened to the shack & enjoyed it then you will also enjoy this one. The emotion is so raw that I ened up wiping tears away at times. And I don't cry a lot ever, about anything. Not as sad as the Shack because it's not about a kidnapped, never found lil girl. But just as powerful in so many ways.

    I've read this and The Shack as well. I've bought extra copies just to give away. I buy audio books so my husband can enjoy the same books on trips. However, I find my self listen to books now more than music. Man I am getting old. If you read to escape you can listen to escape as well. We listen to audible books on our boat as we fish. It gives us other things to talk aboutthan our mundane ins & outs of each day. It's omething we can do together or apartand still have a common bond, topic, interest.

    These books are worth your money. They may even change your life, if you let them.

I belong to a book group and we often" Listen" to the books we have selected for the month while using a paper copy for the discussion notes. It really enhances the quality of the story.

    Story
    "A very different read !"

    I loved "The Shack" but this book by Paul Young this book is very different . It has an unexpected plot device but after you see where he is going with it, it works. There are some strange dialogue sequences and a little too much switching of narration of the various characters but I did like the premise of the story and the ending. The narrator was good.

    Story
    "God is better than we Hoped!"

    I love WHY William P. Young has written The Shack, and now this one! If you ever have time, do yourself a favor and listen to him speak about his life and faith!
    This story was not quite as good as The Shack. I really feel that The Shack was something that was almost ordained, if you will. It was a story that paved a way for a whole new way of approaching our Loving Father. So it wouldn't be fair to compare the two.
    The story brought some tears and some giggles. It's fiction at it's best. You go to places you would never imagine. I do love how W.P Young portrays the Father, Son and Spirit in fresh new ways to remind us that God, is never what we would expect and ALWAYS better than we could hope.
    Fun read.

    What did you like best about Cross Roads? What did you like least?

    Has Cross Roads turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, I'm not sure this is my style

    Too far fetched for me to get into in a big way.

    The book borrowed too many themes from The Shack. I didn't find the story as engrossing and I got bored with it.

    Story
    "If you liked The Shack..."
    Would you listen to Cross Roads again? Why?

    Yes, I would listen to it again - probably will even though I usually don't do a book twice. The story, like that in The Shack, is clearly fiction - but it makes you think, which is the point. Again, it communicates God's desire for us to trust Him knowing He loves us beyond what we can imagine. Again, it is a story of pain redeemed. The ending is not really a surprise, but it is uplifting nonetheless. What you really learn is more about the nature of God.


    What other book might you compare Cross Roads to and why?

    The Shack, but what else would you expect?


    What does Roger Mueller bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    It felt less like reading and more like someone telling me the story.


    If you could take any character from Cross Roads out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Who wouldn't take Jesus? But on the other hand, Maggie seems like she'd be an awful lot of fun!


    Any additional comments?

    I stayed up until 2 am listening - I couldn't stop!
