Review:
An intriguing account of disclosures over time of a small boys recollections of his time in heaven. Doesn’t sound plausible? Well! Read this book and find out for yourself, how hard it is not to believe what you are reading.
Colton, aged three, after the first hospital’s mis-diagnosis, was finally diagnosed as having a burst appendix and was rushed to surgery, where after a long operation his life was saved. His parents were never told that his heart had stopped on the operating table, but some time later Colton made remarks that stopped his parents in their tracks. He had obviously had an out-of-body experience. Over time, and piecing together what Colton said at different times, a fuller picture emerged that his father felt must be shared by others. Hence this book.
A fascinating story that has kept me thinking long after finishing the book.
