Anthony Spencer es egoísta y despiadado. Una hemorragia cerebral lo deja en coma, para “despertar” en un mundo surrealista, un paisaje aterrador que refleja la desolación de su alma y las terribles dimensiones de su vida terrenal. Es en ese sitio donde tiene vívidas interacciones con Jesús, cuyas instrucciones sigue, ante la posibilidad de que lo conduzcan a la redención. ¿Esta inesperada conjunción de sucesos provocará que Tony examine su vida? ¿Tendrá el valor de tomar una decisión crítica que pueda resarcir la grave injusticia que puso en marcha antes de entrar en coma?
Paul Young, author of the international bestseller, The Shack, tells a story of the incremental transformation of a man caught in the torments of his own creation, somewhere between heaven and earth.
Anthony Spencer is egotistical, proud of being a self-made business success at the peak of his game, even though the cost of winning was painfully high. A cerebral hemorrhage leaves Tony comatose in a hospital ICU. He ‘awakens’ to find himself in a surreal world, a ‘living’ landscape that mirrors dimensions of his earthly life, from the beautiful to the corrupt. It is here that he has vivid interactions with others he assumes are projections of his own subconscious, but whose directions he follows nonetheless with the possibility that they might lead to authenticity and perhaps, redemption. The adventure draws Tony into deep relational entanglements where he is able to ‘see’ through the literal eyes and experiences of others, but is “blind” to the consequences of hiding his personal agenda and loss that emerge to war against the processes of healing and trust. Will this unexpected coalescing of events cause Tony to examine his life and realize he built a house of cards on the poisoned grounds of a broken heart? Will he also have the courage to make a critical choice that can undo a major injustice he set in motion before falling into a coma?
