I have had the book since it came out and actually started it but had to stop after the first couple of chapters. I plan on restarting this book soon. What I did read was very good. Happy reading!

This book would make a great christian book club discussion. Though it`s an enjoyable read, I have mixed feelings about it. Anyone interested in a christian book club? This could be our first book.

I actually forgot about it. I found it to be one of the types I typically avoid because I'm not used to feeling-like-I'm-going-to-cry when reading a book. I would still buy and read it though, the sample was great.

^^^The story is touching but it`s not really a tear jerker at least not for me. I guess it`s not bad because I know the little boy is alive & well now.

Anyone else interested in a BHP Christian Book Club? The first book is Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo. It is a really quick read. Only about 163 pages.

You should have seen me when Marley (the dog) died in I Am Legend. I was fighting then back hardcore.

Marley (in Marley & Me) messed me up bad too. I still can`t watch dramatic animal movies.
In Heaven Is For Real the little boy never actually clinically dies. It is a touching story tho.

Do not even get me started on Marley and me I was a complete wreck that night, when I arrived home I hugged Butch a little too tight and he was not pleased but the way I cried you would have thought that Marley was my dog.

Goodnight ladies I am off to read my book, Thing 1 (aka fast tail) said that she is finished her homework and thing 2 (4 yr old going on 40) has been asleep for awhile, I can just sit back relax and read my book.

Have any black/Asian/or Indian little kids gone to heaven, came back, and told of their experiences because based on Colton's and the girl Akiane K. mentioned in the book and her artwork it appears that he is white with greenish blue eyes.

One of the points I wanted to bring out in the book discussion.:)

This is the picture Akiane painted of Jesus that Colton agreed was him too. Tho most people of jewish descent don`t have brightly colored eyes, but I guess it`s not impossible.

You eloquently and diplomatically put into words what I was thinking on matter of his physical features per the eyes, her paintings with Colton's views same to support the Eurocentric pictures that we've seen over the years but her rendering also appears to have some blonde highlights in his very dark hair.

White people will never accept the fact that based on demographics & race, Jesus most likely had more middle eastern/African traits.
