Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He 'awakens' to find himself in a surreal world, a 'living' landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt. It is here that he has vivid interactions with others he assumes are projections of his own subconscious, but whose directions he follows nonetheless with the possibility that they might lead to authenticity and perhaps, redemption. The adventure draws Tony into deep relational entanglements where he is able to 'see' through the literal eyes and experiences of others, but is "blind" to the consequences of hiding his personal agenda and loss that emerge to war against the processes of healing and trust. Will this unexpected coalescing of events cause Tony to examine his life and realize he built a house of cards on the poisoned grounds of a broken heart? Will he also have the courage to make a critical choice that can undo a major injustice he set in motion before falling into a coma?… (mere)

I read 'The Shack' a number of years ago and really enjoyed it. This one is better, I think, than 'The Shack,' mainly because we get to see Mr. Young's idea of what 'near death experiences' are all about. It is very well written, but there is an enormous amount of doctrine that needs to be waded through to get to the story embedded in it. It is also very emotional (what some people would, no doubt, call a real 'tear-jerker'). There are a few things I would point out that may not be obvious to many readers (NO Spoilers!!). No. 1. The character Jack is based on "Jack Lewis," otherwise known as C. S. Lewis, author of 'The Chronicles of Narnia,' etc. (I can hear certain readers going 'DUH-H-H!,' to whom I would merely say, trust me, there are those who don't know). No. 2.: and this applies to 'The Shack' as well. I don't know if Mr. Young knows this, but having the Holy Spirit be female is a view that was taken by the Shakers, who also had the 2nd coming of Christ be Mother Ann Lee, founder of that Sect. And they were very much the sort of people that Young depicts as 'heavenly' in the two books. Which is to say, the Shakers were very much dependent upon an almost 'utopian' communistic and celibate network of relationships almost like Young portrays in this book. Getting back to the story, I really did enjoy the comedic episodes where 'Tony' infiltrated 'Maggie' -- it reminded me of the movie "All of Me," starring Lily Tomlin and Steve Martin. A real scream. Okay. so - ( )

Se si soprassiede allo stile molto americano, è un libro molto bello. Fa riflettere, mette allegria e infonde speranza. ( )

"William Paul Young ... tells a story of the incremental transformation of a man caught in the torments of his own creation, somewhere between heaven and earth."--Provided by the publisher ( )

William Paul Young’s first novel, The Shack, was a publishing phenomenon. Young wrote the novel for his children to explain his thoughts on God and his theological convictions. More than 18 million copies later, Young had an international bestseller which touched the lives of people all over the globe. Itt has got people thinking about what kind of God, God is,what the Trinity really is and how the persons of God relate to one another.

Cross Roads is Young’s second novel and while sophomore efforts seldom live up to the hype generated by a best selling debut, for my money this is the better novel. While there is a certain similarity between the two novels (i.e. both are about profoundly broken men who are bitter at God after experiencing the loss of a loved one, both books bring the protagonist into a transforming and healing encounter with the triune God) the Shack was less crafted and preachier. Cross Roads is as interesting (and as varied) as it is profound.

If I were to describe the experience of reading this novel, it is a bit like if you cross The Shack with A Christmas Carol, The Great Divorce and Being John Malcovich. The Story begins when Anothony Spencer, a businessman who is highly successful but who has alienated everyone in his life, has a cerebral hemorrhage and slips into a coma. He awakens to find himself in a deserted wasteland where he follows tangled paths up a hillside. There he meets a mysterious stranger named Jack who tells him the place where he is, is not exactly hell but it is not exactly home. Jack gets Tony to think hard about the nature of truth and reality. Soon Jack leaves and Jesus and a mysterious Lakota woman show up (the Holy Spirit in disguise and instructs Tony to call her Grandmother). After that things get really interesting and they send Tony on a journey which will result in his ultimate healing, though not in the way he initially envisions.

The twists and turns in this book make it a fun read (I have tried not to give too much away). This is great storytelling and well worth it. In The Shack Young gave us a picture of his theology by encapsulating it in story. This book is no less theological but it doesn’t try to say everything about God. The theology that is explored here is integral to the plot.

What I really appreciated about this book (and The Shack) is that Young is great at imagining a pursuing God who does not give up on those who, because of the damage and hurt they have suffered, have become embittered souls. The God in these novels is actively seeking, pursuing, calling, but never forcing. The triune God doesn’t demand, but invites. Anytime someone ‘images’ God they get something wrong, but I think these aspects of the book are profoundly right. So go on, read it!

Egotistical Anthony Spencer, a successful self-made businessman, suffers a cerebral hemorrhage and lies comatose in the hospital intensive care unit. While unconscious, he “awakens” to a surreal world, similar to the world he’s known in his life. In his “life” in this alternative reality, Tony is able to “see” through the experiences of others but is “blind” to the consequences when he hides his personal agenda.
Will this experience cause Tony to examine his life and the results of his actions? Will he find the courage to undo the injustice he set in motion before he lapsed into the coma?

While Tony isn’t a “bad” man, he isn’t “good,” either. Readers will find his journey to understanding well worth reading.

This story is dedicated to our grandchildren,

each a unique reflection of their parents,

each their own universe unexplored,

carriers of delight and wonder,

infecting our hearts and lives profoundly and eternally.

One day when you read this story,

may it be a small window through which

you better understand your Grandpa,

your God,

and your world!

Some years in Portland, Oregon, winter is a bully, spitting sleet and spewing snow in fits and starts as it violently wrestles days from spring, claiming some archaic right to remain king of the seasons - ultimately the vain attempt of another pretender.
