Joe Eszterhas knows a lot about darkness. A writer of sinister, sexually graphic, violent films like Basic Instinct and Jagged Edge, he awoke one hellishly hot day in 2001 and found God. Or, rather, God found him.

Crossbearer is the powerful, poignant story of how a streetwise, cynical man found faith in some of the most mundane places: a game of baseball, a child's photo of a cloud, a dying mother's dying roses.

A startling personal story, Crossbearer, written by a master memoirist, reveals a fresh, absolutely inspiring look at the importance of faith, values, family, and love. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Molly Smith | 1/14/2014

    " I couldn't finish this book, even though I desperately tried to so I could write an accurate review. Eszterhas seems to be motivated by his own ego, rather than some kind of inspirational Christian revelation he claims to have had. I would not recommend it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Scott | 11/7/2013

    " Wow, great book. Very inspirational. Mr. Eszterhas has quite a story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Philippa | 11/5/2013

    " Somewhat crude in places but very funny too. Its basically about his life in a Catholic Church in Ohio after him being saved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/26/2013

    " Interesting read about the "Basic Instinct", "Jagged Edge", and "Music Box" screenwriter's turn towards faith/God/Catholicism (his birth religion) after surviving throat cancer in 2001. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Will | 7/5/2013

    " Wow! The beginning was fast-paced and the end was poignant. The middle was harder to read, since Joe is so irreverent. But making it to the end made his irreverence make sense. I love reading about other experiences of believing on Jesus! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joan | 4/20/2013

    " True story of a man drastically changed by an encounter with God "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 12/20/2011

    " I was interested in reading this since he is a Cleveland native and raised Catholic. I wanted to see what he had to say about returning to his Catholic faith after finding out he had cancer. He still comes across as self centered and a know-it-all! Just goes to show we are all human...imperfect! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 7/7/2011

    " I have been following Eszterhaus since he became the first screenwriter to get a million bucks for a spec script...Basic Instinct.(Supposedly written in 10 days.) This book is about his surviving cancer and finding the value in religion. I also recommend his autobiography "Hollywood Animal." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anne | 6/7/2011

    " This is one of the most moving and inspiring books I've read in a long time. If anyone is unsure of their faith, this is a must-read. It is a well-written page-turner. Most of all, it shows that anything is possible with God. :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edith | 1/24/2011

    " This was a wonderful book. The author's honesty and courage are remarkable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 10/30/2010

    " This is a wonderful memoir of faith. From the "hell" of Hollywood to his faith in Christ, Joe's life has been a life lived to the fullest. He documents his fight with throat cancer and shares about all areas of his life with openness, humor and honesty. Definitely an inspiring read! "
