This book was not quite as incredible as The Shack but similarly gives insight as to the massive variety of ways in which God works in us, uses us to work in others, loves us into his care and pursues us for his Kingdom purposes!
The first review of this book missed the point. If there is no room for God's grace, even at the end, then that thief on the right side of Jesus was lied to. Hummingbird apparently has no room for the infinite grace of God.
In typical fashion, Paul makes us think and think hard about our own life, about the nature of God, and how we respond to God's grace. It is not a sequel to The Shack, but in a powerful way, probes into the dark places all of us have. This book is not for the "casual" reader, but it is for the reader who wants their roots to grow deeper in Christ. I once heard Paul in person in New Orleans, and was greatly impressed with his faith, authenticity, and his personal honesty. I did not see this as his next book, but I should have!
If you don't want to think deeply about your faith, if you have issues with the way God lavishes His Grace, if you don't like the way life sometimes becomes messy, then this book is not for you. But if you are ready for another epiphany, then dive in, wrestle with it, then enjoy the feast of wisdom in this book.
I enjoyed The Shack and decided to purchase CrossRoads, I wasted my money! This book makes no sense at all, this man doesn't even believe in God and yet he's given an extra chance after he's dying and the Holy Spirit is Grandmother?
