Book Description

Nov. 13 2012
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 1 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.

One of the most faith-enhancing books I have ever read. Bear Grylls on THE SHACK This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress did for his. It's that good!

The protagonist is not like able in any way, he is self absorbed and paranoid and then he is brought to his
Knees, (literally), by serious health issues. What follows as he meets different characters and Jesus is a
Wonderfully inspiring read. Whether or not you believe in Christianity you will be inspired by this wonderful
Message of redemption and love. This story will comfort those who are further along in the journey of life and inspire the rest of us to do more and live more accountable lives. I want to loan my copy to so many people that I need more copies! I loved this book, I will read it again.

By Becky B
Format:Hardcover
Disclosure: I received this book free in exchange for agreeing to write a review for Speakeasy.

Wm Paul Young, the self-published author of the megahit The Shack has written another novel, this time with the help of Faith Words publishers, who released Cross Roads last month. Once again, Young writes of an encounter between a broken human being and the three members of the Trinity, depicted in his characteristically earthy, accessible and (in my opinion) winsome way. This book reminded me in turns ofof The Shack, A Christmas Carol (Dickens), The Great Divorce (Lewis), and Pilgrim's Progress (Bunyan).

To get my biggest criticism out of the way, I'll just say that the first thirty-some pages turned me off completely. If I hadn't been committed to reading the entire thing and writing a review as part of my agreement with Speakeasy, as well as having liked The Shack well enough to press on in faith that Young's storytelling abilities would win out, I would've abandoned the effort. The first few chapters are meant to introduce the reader to the deplorable state of the main character, Tony's, life, but do so by a string of preachy commentary and psychoanalytical insights that leave no doubt that we're being set up for a redemption story.

After his rough beginning, however, Young does what he does so well and draws the reader in by telling good stories and writing great dialogue that develop each character in a meaningful, fleshed-out way that feels natural and engaging. Finally, I began to care about the main character. Tony is a successful businessman, too self-absorbed and too busy to really care about or even notice the trail of broken relationships he's left in the wake of his path to the top.

after reading 'The Shack", I had high aspirations for Young's second novel. HUGE disappointment. Language is disgusting. Reference to Jesus leaves much to be desired. Would not even consider wasting time to finish reading. Rather be walking my dog.
