If you go to the store to buy this book to read, might as well get a box of tissues while you’re out and about. You’ll need it! However, don’t let that stop you, the testimony in this book will be very encouraging to you.
The story is about a young boy who goes through a medical emergency and almost dies (the first half of the book). He claims that he went to heaven and has observations to the effect afterwards (the second half of the book). For this reason, I wasn’t too convinced I was going to like the book. I hate reading about kids in life and death situations. It’s one of my worst fears and have no interest in going down that road. Then to here a kid talk about “heaven”, well, I wasn’t convinced it was going to be legit let alone impactful.
I was proven wrong! While painful to travel the road with the parents through the pain of the medical emergency, it was worth it to see what God was doing in th situation and the impact of the testimony on the back-end. The things this kid says to his folks over the next couple years about heaven are matter of fact, impactful, and full of confirmation. I was so pumped about heaven and the life we have after this one that I was encouraged in some areas of perseverance I am in now.
Another quick point, for a guy who does a bunch of reviews like this, I am not a reader. However, this book sucks you right in and I had it done in one sitting. This book is worth it and the testimony is powerful.
I got this book for free from the publisher for an honest review….
