Heaven is For Real? Not on this one!
on January 2, 2012
Although it seems like many people are giving this book a five star rating, I cannot. My take on heaven and what God would allow to be revealed are just to different from Colton's.
The overall feel of the book is an uneasy one for me. Anything, not taken from the bible on the matter of heaven should pass through some amount of scrutiny from us. This book is no exception. The pictures are to steeped in religious symbolism for my liking. They seem forced and heavy. The illustrations alone make anything else in the book hard for me to take as truth.
Although I was given this book free of charge from the booksneeze blogger program, I am unable to confidently recommend this one to parents for their children. The adult version was a better read, perhaps the illustrations just did not service Colton's message well.
