Book Review: To Heaven and Back by Mary C. Neal

What an extraordinary story! I enjoyed reading about the miraculous events in Mary’s life and what God taught her through them. And more than what God taught her – how he transformed her.

These events in Mary’s life, including seeing heaven and coming back to earth, prepared her for the work she still needed to do on earth and also prepared her for other things she would go through.

There were some doctrinal issues in the book that I disagree with, but for the most part, I was encouraged by Mary and what she has to say in the book. It certainly helped me to remember that miraculous events still happen and that they are all around us. We will see them if we just open our eyes and look.

Great book! Four stars from me.

Thank you to the publisher for giving me this copy to review.

Book Review: Heaven Is for Real for Kids by Todd, Sonja, and Colton Burpo

I have a four-year-old daughter who loves to learn, so I thought this book that is written from a child’s point of view about heaven would be great for her. And I was right. She loved every bit of it.

The book is only about 20 pages long. The chapters are very short. I told her I was going to read one chapter each day to her. Well, that didn’t’ happen. When I was finished with the first chapter, she asked me to read the next one, and the next one after that. And before I knew it, I had read the whole book to her, including the questions and answers at the end, in one sitting. She loved it!

What I love about the book is that it tells of Colton’s experience of going to heaven and seeing Jesus seated at the right hand of God and the Holy Spirit seated on the left. He describes everything he saw in heaven and the people he met there, and it sounds absolutely wonderful. The best part about it is that it all aligns with Scripture as well.

I love his description of Jesus, and the painting of Jesus’ face in his book is amazing. All of the other pictures that illustrate what Colton saw in heaven really help kids to picture what he describes as well.

I give this high marks. It’s a great book! My daughter and I will probably read it many more times.

Book Review: The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven by Kevin and Alex Malarky

the boy who came back from heaven, alex malarky, book review, kevin malarky, books about heaven, book about heaven, boy who went to heavenWhat a story! Alex has lived miracle after miracle, and it was just amazing to read about. It was also heartbreaking. I can’t imagine the horror Alex’s parents went through after a car accident that left him in a coma for two months. It is a difficult road that God has the Malarky’s on, but in the difficulty, God is still blessing and showing Himself faithful.

I’m glad Alex and his dad wrote this book. God is really using Alex’s story to boost other people’s faith. This is a book you should not miss. It’s amazing!
