Paul Sentes builds a cross, places it in his front yard, hangs on the cross and begins the most dramatic, inspirational, spiritual, and challenging undertaking of his life. Prompting Paul to the astounding act is his unwillingness to let anger control his life. He cries out to God for help and receives a recurring mystical vision of him on a cross. He faces a psychological abyss alone. Only his vow of silence protects him from the torments of his neighbors, visitors and the media. Paul’s controversial act reverberates through his neighborhood, the church and ultimately the world. Thousands come to pray, to deposit articles on his lawn and ask for healing. Six souls twisted by anger become intimately involved with Paul, during his stay on the cross. They share their dreams and issues with him. On day 30, Paul has an epiphany and is spiritually transformed on the cross. Five of the six souls are also transformed. The other suffering soul is incapable of transformation and shoots Paul on day 40.

“A very timely story plot”
Five Star Review on Amazon By JoAnnNorris
The story plot of this book is very unique and timely and touches on the stressful issues we live though in today’s world. The stress of losing a loved one, divorce, violent personal attacks, experience in the armed services, and responsibilities of today’s police officers. Emil has brought in characters which not only have to deal with pressing through their own experiences, but now find themselves spending time wondering about this man, Paul, who is outwardly showing his commitment to God by suffering on his own man-made cross in his own front yard! The neighborhood is caught off guard and their reactions are a great read through each chapter as they question why is this man doing this. The answer is not clear because Paul never speaks! He just hangs there listening to their thoughts and watches their actions. I enjoyed this book very much! I’ll be reading the sequel soon and hope this will become someone’s film project one day!
