Heaven is for Real: Special Movie Edition
Last time I read the book, I was focused on Colton's experience in heaven as it lines up with what the Bible teaches. This time when I read, I was focused on Todd's experience as a dad watching his son suffer through an undiagnosed illness to the point that Colton was near death. As a parent, I can understand Todd's emotion, including being angry with God. The scene where Todd is alone in a hospital room having a meltdown with God is so moving to me. I need to know that it is okay to be honest with God because even in the midst of my inner turmoil, He still loves and cares for me.
If you have not read this book, read it now. As excited as I am to see the movie, the book is always better.
Thomas Nelson provided a free copy of this book in exchange for me review which I freely give.
