Quick Book Review: Heaven Is For Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back
I was supposed to publish a post earlier about my thoughts on the celebration of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day. That was triggered by a colleague of mine who asked why I was not in the cemetery. I had to rebut through here, like I always do because I am such a weakling when confronted, but it did not prosper. Instead, I was caught up reading Heaven Is For Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back, which I started reading yesterday, All Souls’ Day.
It was written really good. I am not a bookworm, though, but when it comes to books or articles I always do have my criteria before reading one. One is the writing style. The book met my expectations. It made me just go on, page after page, and get startled about the concept of heaven. But God let me see something bigger than that. It brought me to tears, and confessing.
What’s next is the story or the subject of the book. From the title itself, I could say that this one is too interesting. I like the pacing from chapter to chapter, not boring.
Also, I like the reference of some Bible verses there, so one can grasp what each paragraph meant. The book, while in the middle of a reading spree, never fails to make me exclaim, like “oooh”, “aaah” or just any exclamatory expression or think or do something every time Colton reveals something in every chapter. For example, there was a mention of a CNN video in it, and it moved me to search it on YouTube. The video gave me a lot of some serious goosebumps. If you ask what the video is, you’ll have a to get a copy of the book first.
Overall, I’m giving it five stars. It is highly recommended, I believe not only for Christians, but for everyone.
