I was blown away by Crystal's story. She didn't have an easy life growing up. Her brief experience in heaven compels her to share her testimony with others - those she knows and those she meets in her daily life. I wish I was that open in sharing my faith.
When she says she likes to talk alot, she wasn't kidding. Her book reflects that. I do believe her story, but too much ya-badda-ya-badda-ya-badda. While It did take courage to talk about the things in her past, the book amounted to her complete autobiography. I was hoping for more details about heaven and what it's like, not her life story.
This book shares a different viewpoint of heaven and meeting God than others I have previously read. Crystal McVea is very open and honest about all aspects of her life, including the parts that she is not proud of. It shows us that we are all loved by The Lord, no matter who we are or what we've done.
Meeting God in heaven, how can you not want to read about that? The fact that the story tells of her brokeness and human failures just makes God's love resonate all the more. Anyone can identify with her life and the tragedies and trials. Every one can glean a lot about who God is by how her life changes after meeting him in person. I highly recommend this book both to people who know God and to those who aren't sure he is there!
