I recently listened to the audio version of Cross Roads by William Paul Young, the author of The Shack. If you liked The Shack, you will like this book. It deals with faith, heaven, and God’s love in a very unusual way. The book is very thought provoking and very funny at the same time. It has sad moments and triumphant moments. I listened to it in the car and often stayed in the car a few extra minutes to hear what was happening next. I was intrigued by portions of this book and always entertained. My fourteen year old granddaughter listened to this book with me. We both enjoyed it.
