Cross Roads, is the second groundbreaking Christian novel from Wm Paul Young; author of international bestseller THE SHACK.
Exploring themes of redemption and restoration, Cross Roads is an inspiring and provocative story of a man who only realises how bad and regretful his life has been when it's too late.
Yet miraculously, and by the grace of God, he is given an unexpected chance to put things right for himself and for those he's hurt and damaged. But will he find the courage and faith to take that chance or will merely entrench himself deeper into his corrupted and vindictive selfishness.
The symbolism of the crossroads is unmistakable as multi-millionaire businessman; Anthony Spencer finds himself lost in a spiritual landscape somewhere between his luxury outward life and his desolate inner existence.
Trapped in a coma and poised between life and death he must face up to the skewed priorities of the life he's lived on earth, the damage he’s caused and the people he can now to choose to save – or he can choose to save only his earthly self. In this Pilgrim’s Progress world he meets a stranger who reveals himself as the Jesus Anthony has never truly known, and the Holy Spirit who gives him the care and reassurance of a loving grandparent.
Offered a chance to experience his misused life through the eyes of others, he finds the journey to redemption a struggle as decides whether to rescue the mess he's made – or to save himself with a God given, single use, and miraculous gift. Can he undo the chain of events he’s set in motion and will he have the courage to make the right choice?
All the key themes of THE SHACK are revived and explored in more depth through William Paul Young’s Cross Roads through a combination of radical spirituality and a heart-wrenching, human story.

Is this book by the same author as The Shack; the author’s name is similar but not quite the same? Must I have read The Shack to understand Cross Roads and is it a sequel?

"I loved every minute of it! I laughed and cried and I'd just order 3 more as Christmas presents!" Other Retailer's Reviewer.
"Fantastic. Loved The Shack, and this was wonderful. A bit like a cross between Pilgrim's Progress and 'A Christmas Carol', but with some delightful touches." Other Retailer's Reviewer.
"One of the most faith-enhancing books I have ever read." (Bear Grylls on THE SHACK)

"This book is speaking loud and clear to a lot of people." (The Independent on THE SHACK)
"Bunyanesque - bold, imaginative, humane and funny." (Church Times on THE SHACK)
