Cross Roads Reflections: Inspiration for Every Day of the Year is a thought process for Wm. Paul Young's first book, Cross Roads. Designed to be a daily devotional, Mr. Young utilizes his original story line to orchestrate lessons for daily life. Each day, the reader will be introduced to a scene (in correct order with the book) and given a subtle life lesson to contemplate. Some days are lighthearted yet others are as deep as the reader will allow. The author poignantly steers us to lessons that apply to modern day tribulation and choices, then leaves readers with a thought provoking message designed to help readers better themselves and thus the world around them.
I reviewed Cross Roads Reflections: Inspiration for Every Day of the Year by Wm. Paul Young as an audio book so it really wasn't utilized as a daily devotional as intended. Instead, I listened from beginning to end during my commutes. It was a good way to start and end the day and I was rather sad when the credits played at the end. It is necessary to have read or listened to the first book, Cross Roads, in order to understand the significance of characters and story line. That being said, once the reader has treated themselves to the book, they definitely should find this devotional and dive into it immediately. My favorite part was the memorial to the young man that Cabby was created to remember. The fact that the author made it a point to stop and let the reader know that this was a significant date and why tells a lot about the love he had for his friend.
