Multi-millionaire Anthony Spencer is trapped in a coma and finds himself in a surreal world that reflects the skewed priorities of the life he's lived on Earth where he meets a stranger who turns out to be Jesus and a grandmother who is the Holy Spirit. Pleading for a second chance, he is sent back to Earth to redeem himself. There he must fight to put right the mess he's created, experiencing events through others' eyes before deciding how to use the miraculous gift he's been given. Before his illness he had set events in motion that he now needs to undo - but will he have the courage to make the right choice?
The Shack is an international phenomenon, surpassing one million copies sold before being picked up by a mainstream publisher. Its combination of radical spirituality with a heart-wrenching story made it a word-of-mouth hit, and Cross Roads has all the ingredients to repeat its impact.

Having read "The Shack" I was excited to read Mr. Young's next book. And I have to say it does not disappoint. Although my only observation is as you reach chapter 2/3 the book slows a little but do bear with it as the story soon explodes. Excellent writing, really enjoyed the book
I'm 54, a teacher with two sons in their twenties. I love reading and really enjoy Audible. I enjoy crafts and gardening as well as music.
THis is one of the best.
I loved the idea that your life can be expressed in imagery
No - it was quite thought provoking, but there were also a couple of genuine laugh out loud moments.
Cross Roads takes you donw the path of the inner experience of life. It shows you memories stocked away, hidden but having their influence never the less. It brings you face to face with your deepest motives, drives and ambitions. On the other side it shows you the face of Jesus in a way you have never seen it before. It shows a way to turn from false beliefs in how life works, towards true life and the way one can live it fully. A remarcable tale...!!!
You could say I felt at a cross roads in my life. I found the book moving, enjoyable. Yes there were times it made feel sad - but at the same time I found it very uplifting and comforting.
I will listen to it again. A bit like The Shack, where you felt you needed to go over it again to check you hadn't missed any parts of the story.
Truly there is a God in heaven who knows me. This book cuts through all unnecessary religious rules and regulations. It made me look at the trinity of the creator in a reassuring, loving way.
Actually, each chapter was so well written that without prompting it made me both think - and want to read/ know more.
You won't be disappointed.
