When six year old Alex awoke from the coma he began to share an incredible story. He begins to tell about the angels that took him into the gates of heaven. The reader begins to see heaven and earth through Alex's eyes and words.
Alex talks about being held by Jesus, he gives startling accounts of watching the medical procedures with Jesus, and how angels are involved in our day to day lives. There is a startling consistency to his accounts and Alex states that there are some things "I'm not allowed to tell you". This story is filled with trials, struggles and inspirational moments. Alex's faith, even though he is a quadriplegic, is astounding and moving.
Kevin writes "the years following Alex's return to our home, then, were about endings and beginnings - it was the end of Alex's coma and our dependence on the hospital. But it was also the beginning to a new and challenging kind of family life. Even more than this, it felt like the beginning of our awareness of another world, the powerful reality that continues to permeate our son's life."
This is a story of one family, their tragic moments, their struggles, the ups and downs, and the prayer of God's people and splashes of the glory of heaven that continues to touch many lives.
"You may be intrigued. You may be skeptical. You may be hungry to know more about what lies beyond life on earth." In the words of Alex when he was 6 years old, "God is amazing. I'm just a kid." This book points the reader to a God who loves them.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House to review. All opinions are my own.
This is an amazing story. I wanted to read it because it was real. I read a lot of fiction, but stories like these excite me. They validate my faith, which is always the coolest thing. My favorite parts of the book were Alex's parts. The book is mostly written from Dad's point of view. He explains what happened. The accident, going to the hospital, waiting, talking with his wife, the doctors, pastors, and friends. But Alex's words are interspersed, telling us where he was and what he was doing while everyone else was waiting. It's fascinating. I also enjoyed seeing the stories of other people--people who felt called to pray for Alex and later shared their story with his parents. God works in amazing ways. Sometimes I think we get so caught up in life, we think we know how God works. I don't think we have a clue just how much God is at work in ways we'll never see until Heaven.
Ever since I read Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness, I was changed. I believe he's on to something the way he depicts angles and demons in his novel. But that's just a story. Frank made it up. But Alex's life is real. He talked with these angels, and he didn't like it when the bad ones came around. Looking to be inspired? Read this story. It will really get you thinking.
