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?

Blind read, and my outlook on life is changed

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not only would I but before I even got through a quarter of this book i was almost begging my mother in law to read it.

Who was your favorite character and why?

So many...sooo many! My mind immediately jumps to Grandmother. Yet I'd have to say my favorite is Maggie! Great sense of humor.

Which scene was your favorite?

The tomb! Thats all I'm gonna say. Powerful and emotional.

Who was the most memorable character of Cross Roads and why?

Tony, I can some what relate to him.

Any additional comments?

What a world shaker! The foundation of my life has shifted because of this book. I cannot thank the author and the narrator enough for allowing me to be a part of Tonys world. I am a melody!

The gentleman reading the book used great inflection

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

Pilgram's Progress

Which character – as performed by Roger Mueller – was your favorite?

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

Any additional comments?

This is a really good book - the first part of chapter 5 dealing with community is a great way to see our relationship with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Chapter 13 addes some great in-site as well.

Awesome.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book highly. It was every bit as good as The Shack, but not repetitive. Crossroads is its own unique story.

What did you like best about this story?

The authors way of making God relatable and real.

Have you listened to any of Roger Mueller’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have, I heard Roger read The Shack. He did great here too.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Money and power are figments of our imagination, we are lost without God's love.

Any additional comments?

God is love. Without God, we are bankrupt.

If you liked The Shack- you will like Cross Roads

What made the experience of listening to Cross Roads the most enjoyable?

I love that they used the same narrator as The Shack- Roger did such a great job with all the difference characters- he is entertaining to listen to and really lets your imagination run wild. <br/>I've never been an audio book person but now that I commute- its the only thing that gets me through traffic! I love Wm. Paul Youngs unique take on faith- he is truly uplifting and his stories are captivating.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cross Roads?

That first moment when Tony finds himself in the head of a child.

What about Roger Mueller’s performance did you like?

His voice changes per character

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Tony decided to choose another life over his.

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!

Major Disappointment- Nothing like The Shack

Any additional comments?

This book is so much like The Shack and nothing like it at the same thing. Its about a JERK of a guy who as the reader you can't stand so you don't get pulled in. The Shack worked magic because it broke your heart and you cared about the guy. Also it seems to be taking a lot of the same descriptions of things as The Shack even used some of the same words.<br/>I was so excited to read this but it was a huge let down!<br/>

Totally Absorbed

I loved it. If a book can propel you forward by loving others more than yourself with kindness read it. :) I found myself falling into a deeper love Jesus. I laughed, cried and my heart just sang through this book.
