Product Description

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?

    As other reviewers have mentioned, this book shares a portrayal of the relationship within the trinity and God's relationship with us. I found the story was a a bit trite and hard to get into at first, but the images, ideas and questions presented after Tony's accident were thought provoking. The characters and events presented after this event were engaging and humourous. The descriptions of the landscape of Tony's inner world captured the work of transformation and renewal that come with an encounter with the love of God. I recommend this book and will read it again.

    This book met my expectations. I had just read Cruel Harvest and compared it to this child's story of redemtion. Cross Roads is fictional and Cruel Harvest is a real life drama. However, I was not disappointed.

    I read the Shack and loved it. I read Cross Roads concerned that Young's next novel just wouldn't be as good. I was wrong! Not only is it better, it's different, and has a lot more humor. If you didn't read the Shack it wouldn't matter as Cross Roads is not part 2.

    I read some of the other view points and must say I understand what they are saying, but please, please please remember one major fact about both these books, they are Fiction! and awesome ficton at that.
