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!

    Story
    "Almost didn't finish..."

    Almost turned off after first several chapters. Seemed like a poorer shadow of the shack with overly flamboyant word pictures that grew tiresome. Additionally, the Universalism theology was stronger than the Shack. At one point a discussion of Hell with CS Lewis included a pretty clear message that there is no Hell and that Dante "now feels bad about his Inferno idea."

    If you can wade through the theological problems, including some stabs at the authority of elders and order in marriage, the novel gets really good and is well worth the listen. The story becomes fun and super entertaining! I don't want to spoil it but I can say that there are some big twists and the introduction of some characters that you will absolutely fall in love with. My wife and I listened on a long car ride and we were laughing out loud often and other times deeply moved.

    The book is fiction and not meant to be a theology lesson. Yet it does become theological by the nature of the author having Christ and the Holy Spirit characters teaching Tony about life, grace, and who gets to go to the life after. Please get your salvation doctrine and eschatology from the Bible and not Wm. Paul Young, but also enjoy a fun and excellently written story from a great writer.
