Cross Roads

Cross Roads

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.

Reviews

Bunyanesque - bold, imaginative, humane and funny
Church Times on THE SHACK
The strength of this novel is its ability to face up to the realities and tragedies of life; as a result, it could be a great book to lend a friend who has given up on faith... If you liked The Shack, you will love this book
Christianity Magazine
This book has the potential to do for our generation what John Bunyan's Pilgrim's Progress did for his. It's that good!
Eugene Peterson on THE SHACK
Once again we have an interesting depiction of the Trinity but I was really taken by the breaking down of the 'wilderness of his soul' that the lead character experiences whilst in his coma. Certainly one to spark some lively discussions...
Together
This book is speaking loud and clear to a lot of people
The Independent on THE SHACK
One of the most faith-enhancing books I have ever read.
Bear Grylls on THE SHACK
Ruthless Tony spencer rates success by the amount of real estate properties he owns. Charismatic when in need of information, or anything to augment success, he is ruled by the need to increase and maintain his capital. Divorcing and then remarrying his wife only to fully destroy her- physiologically, financially and legally- his only concern is to maintain the upper hand. Yet, there are moments when he succumbs to alcohol and remembers the faults in his actions, the things he has lost. With a second chance, he either has to make right the things he has done , or give someone a chance at a better life.
