Book Review: Heaven is for Real


I have had this book in my night stand drawer for probably a year or more now. It was one of those books my mom said I had to read, but just never had. In fact I picked it up once and then like I always seem to do,  I put it down because something else caught my attention.

This book was such an easy and wonderful read! And now I know just why it is a New York Times Best Seller. The story in itself is incredible. If you know nothing about the book, it is about a 4 year old boy who has been to Heaven. It is neat that he went to meet Jesus, but the incredible part is the accuracy with which he recalls things. I won't give away the whole book but He knew Jesus sat at the right hand side of God while Gabrielle sat on the left, and that Jesus has a cousin named John. It is just incredible that this 4 year old recalled Heaven in details that completely align with scripture. But, remember this boy is ONLY 4 so this is not stuff you teach 4 year olds in Sunday School. {:Normally it is more long the lines of "Jesus wants you to be kind to others and stop hitting your brother and taking your sister's dress up shoes:}

I give this book 4 out of 4 stars. I highly recomend it. It is an easy read and one that you don't want to end.

Next book on my list: The Christian Atheist by Craig Groeschel
