    Just finished John’s latest book, Crossing Over; and it rocks!!! I’m sooo glad I didn’t quit reading when I crossed paths with What if God were the Sun book, which was a sore disappointment for me.

    John’s Crossing Over, although a bit repetitive to his One Last Time, is the best thing that’s crossed my desk in weeks. I wish I could do it over again, and it left me hungry for his next literary contribution.

    I paired my reading of Crossing Over with John’s taped version of same. The parts John necessarily left out of the taped version although very interesting, weren’t absolutely necessary to the taped experience. I think he or his editor did a bang up job choosing what to keep for the taped reading. Although, I would say, if anyone wants the full impact and they only have enough to cover one or the other, the book is a great choice.

    Personally, I liked both, going from the tapes to the book and back again, hearing John describe certain experiences — then reading about it settled the whole experience of Crossing Over into me more completely. I find John’s voice, his intonations, the rise and fall of tones, humor, and deeply emotional commitment displayed in his voice on the tapes to be an excellent partner with the written text. What one version didn’t fulfil, the other did and visa-versa. If you haven’t read the book or listen to the taped version of the book, Crossing Over, I would highly recommend you
    do both. As soon as possible.
