Abstract:

"Joe Eszterhas grew up in refugee camps and then in America's back alleys. He worked as a police reporter, racing the cops to robberies and shootings. He interviewed and wrote about mass murders and serial killers. He wrote dark, sexually graphic, and violent films such as Basic Instinct, Jagged Edge, and Jade." "Eszterhas knew a lot about darkness. Then, on a hellishly hot day in 2001, desperately battling to survive throat cancer and his addictions to alcohol and cigarettes, Joe Eszterhas found God. Or God found him."

"Crossbearer is the powerful, poignant, and sometimes wryly humorous account of a street-smart and cynical man's newfound faith, and of how he discovers God in the most intimate and routine moments of life: a family game of baseball, a child's photograph of a cloud, a dying mother's dying roses. It is also the inspiring story of a man who must overcome his addictions to stay alive and can't do it by himself. He realizes that he needs the love of his wife, his children, and especially his new friend, God."--Jacket.
