Anthony Spencer is a self-centered, egotistic man who only sees what can benefit him and nothing else. When a health condition causes him to fall and strike his head, he ends up in a coma where he finds himself rubbing elbows with Jesus. The journey shows him the error of his ways, the love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost and, most importantly, the option to choose between himself and another. He finds himself in the mind of a Down Syndrome teenager who had been playing hide and seek in the hospital, winding up in Tony's room (and then something happens but that would be a spoiler).
The story line is so well thought out that you cannot help but wonder if the author didn't have -- or know somebody that had-- this experience. The book is like a slowly forming epiphany for the reader. When the main character gets his "aha" moment, it is likely that the reader does also. I listened to the audio book version and loved the actor's voices and their take on their personalities. I especially loved that the author has two characters with special meaning, one being the down syndrome boy ("Cabby"). There are a couple of scenes that are downright hilarious despite the somber tone of the book. I found myself laughing out loud in traffic...and then I went back to the beginning of that chapter and listened again; it was that hilarious! There are tear-jerker moments, too; so be sure to have those tissues within arm's reach.
