A crown-of-thorns plant, a tiny pot, a brass plaque, a ten foot redwood cross-all serve as simple signposts, pointing politicians, preachers, terrorists, bookstore owners, and other people of Kings Crossroads to decisions that will change their lives forever. Phillips' picturesque parable of smalltown American is as vivid and folksy as a Jan Karon novel.
Behind every door is a life, and behind every life is a destiny fashioned by choices and crossroads. Kings Crossroads Could be your town. It could be my town. Like any town, it is a microcosm of American life. But its politicians, preachers, contractors, teachers, and business owners, young and old, men and women alike, are about to discover that the terrorism of modern times can strike at the heart of small towns as well as large cities. When, as a result, individual crossroads beckon, and suddenly the shadow of an ancient cross falls across life's path, every man and every woman of Kings Crossroads will face choices, opportunities, and dangers that will write their own eternal destinies. This is their story. a story about danger, about opportunity, about what life means, and about what it ought to mean. Perhaps you will find yourself in its pages too.
