Crossroads by Wm. Paul Young
Since I really enjoyed The Shack by Wm. Paul Young, I was very interested in his next book, Crossroads.
Unfortunately, Crossroads is just a different version of the Shack. We still have a man who meets the tri-partite God in three actual persons and his life is changed. The biggest difference is that the mega story is not as compelling and the idea has been done before, by Young.
That being said, the parts I liked about The Shack and the parts I liked about Crossroads were the parts that brought God to us in a fresh way. He sticks to the theology we find in the Bible, but in the mouth of a character in a novel, the novelty makes the words that much more compelling.
