Summary

Joe Eszterhas knows a lot about darkness. A writer of sinister, sexually graphic, violent films like Basic Instinct and Jagged Edge, he awoke one hellishly hot day in 2001 and found God. Or, rather, God found him.

Crossbearer is the powerful, poignant story of how a streetwise, cynical man found faith in some of the most mundane places: a game of baseball, a child's photo of a cloud, a dying mother's dying roses.

A startling personal story, Crossbearer, written by a master memoirist, reveals a fresh, absolutely inspiring look at the importance of faith, values, family, and love.

Foul Language

Considering the title of the book I was appalled by the constant use of foul language. It was unnecessary and took away from the message the author was trying to convey.

Do Not Waste Your Time or Credit

Not anything close to an inspirational book here! I am so sorry I wasted the time and credit on this book! Don't reward this character who thinks he is "little God" with this awful litany of his torrid lifestyle that he misguidedly thought was research ... he still hasn't gotten through what it is to live a good and decent life, though for over 50 years he lived a life that was detestable and immoral and says he is now "saved" by writing and doing a few of the correct things. He isn't very far along the road to be held up as an example of a person who has made it back to an ethically moral life. A long way to go yet, bud!
