I had heard so much about the book that I had to get it and read it for myself. It opened up a whole new concept about Heaven and what it's like. Amazing story.

I had read this book and then bought this one for a dear friend. She absolutely loved it. Can't wait for the movie to come out.

This is an incredible story of a little boy's experience of heaven - but it rings true. He meets his great grandfather. While he does not recognize a picture of him at age 64 before his death, he does pick him out of a picture of a family group when the man was 29! A must read for everyone who hopes to see life after death!

I was interested in hearing the account of what this little boy witnessed and was willing to share with his family and others...mostly because many of my biological family is on the heaven side of their existance. I was a little disappointed that the Father in the story seemed to monopolize most of the story. While I fully understand that a young boy would find it difficult, if not impossible, to write a whole book by himself....I feel a lot of the text was devoted to justifying how the Father reacted to what happened to the boy....instead of dedicating the story to the expression of what the little boy experienced and felt about the incident. All in all, I did enjoy the book. I ordered an audio book to listen to while doing my long commute to work 5 days of the week. Hearing this young boy's testimony was very encouraging and comforting to me....dispite his Father's attempt to monopolize the story. I look forward to being reunited with my family when I arrive in heaven. It was good to know that my family is aware of and cares about what is happening to me while I am still on earth....and that they interact intimentally with people that have passed on into the spiritual world.

If there ever was a "must Read" for all contemporary seekers, this is it

Most accounts of such experiences have left me much less impressed-this is such an amazing testimony. There are similar testimonies available from orphans in China in the early 1900's but this is so fresh and corroborates the testimonies of other children who had information that can only reasonably ...
