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?

Loved the Shack which set the expectations bar very high for this read.
Similar reaction on reflection in summary; knowing God more, loving Jesus deeper and aching for the daily presence and companionship of the Holy Spirit.
Also provides comforting thoughts against any fears of the afterlife.
Thanks to Paul and the team for giving us this gift.

In the last years of the ninth century, King Alfred of Wessex is in failing health, and his heir is an untested youth. The Danes, who have failed so many times to conquer Wessex, smell opportunity.... First comes Harald Bloodhair, a savage warrior leading a Viking horde. But Alfred still has the services of Uhtred, his unwilling warlord, who leads Harald into a trap and, at Farnham in Surrey, inflicts one of the greatest defeats the Vikings were ever to suffer.

Missed the Northern voice of Jonathan Keeble, Stephen Perring did a good job but voice less believable for Uhtred
