5 Stars Out Of 5
This IS For Real!!!
March 5, 2014
I first became aware of this book when Max Lucado quoted it in one of his recent books. I totally respect Max Lucado and went and bought and read this book. The first time through I was totally overwhelmed. I then sat down and prayed. And Knew this was God's Truth. Doesn't the Lord say how we are to hold in high regard Children - and hear the Lord gives this child His message to us now! So, I reread the book with my Bible and with 4 Bible commentaries. And, this book lines up with Scripture in every place! This book is from the Lord. If people want to speculate I say may God go with you and may He open your heart and mind.
I read this after seeing the interview on the 700 club, seeing all the great reviews, and having friends recommend it. Heaven Is For Real is about a boy named Colton who nearly died at 3 years old, and had a "vision" in the process (did not lose vital signs in hospital). This book is interesting to read, in fact, it was hard to put down. However, that is the only reason I gave it 2 stars. This book is filled with lots of little things that "didn't feel right" to me. Like other people have said already there are many things in this book that just do not seem to line up with the Bible. When seeking information we should always go to the Bible which is infallible and true, and talk to Him in prayer. It is wonderful that God performed a miracle in allowing Colton to live, and it is wonderful to see how God loves us enough to do things like that. I would not recommend this book for anyone who is looking for comfort because of loss or to an unbeliever. I also would not allow a child to read the version of this that is made for kids. Before buying this it is a good idea to sit down with the Lord and see what He would have you do.
