Paul Young, author of the international bestseller, The Shack, tells a story of the incremental transformation of a man caught in the torments of his own creation, somewhere between heaven and earth.

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?

Just couldn't get into this book. It was nothing like The Shack.

Great book! A little slow at first but captivating book overall!

I enjoyed The Shack much more than Cross Roads. This was a good story, but I found the connections with Jesus and Grandmother not as strong as in The Shack.

If I can recommend only one book our of all the books I've read in my lifetime-this would be it!
I was captivated by the characters, the plot and especially the relationships. I LEARNED from this book.
The Shack left me cold as I can't identify with the main character whose child is stolen away from before his eyes. The CrossRoad main character is just a man who has lost his way in relationships and love. Heck, I have some of that in my life, too.

What would you do if you were given the choice of saving your own life or someone else's life? This book tells of the journey of the main character making that decision.
