The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven was a very interesting book and I read it in the space of about five hours. It was very easy to get lost in the story of the little boy who was in a coma for two months after a very serious car wreck. Alexs dad told the majority of the story with sections from Alex throughout the book. As you would expect, the story begins with the accident and goes through the chronological events as they took place. The descriptions of the accident, the lengthy hospital stays, Alexs heavenly encounters, and how the family managed were all very interesting. The photos in the middle of the book added a lot of insight to the experience. Although I liked the book, it was not quite what I expected. It would have been nice to have had a little more information at the last of the book as to exactly how Alex is doing now, several years after the accident. Also, I chose the book because I wanted to see what Alex had to say about his experiences in heaven. I was a little surprised that more time was not devoted to what he saw in heaven and his interactions with the angels, but it did all make sense in the way the story was told. Even though my expectations were slightly different from the actual book, I have no doubt that this boy had a very intimate encounter with God and his family can testify to a miracle.
I received this complimentary copy from Tyndale House Publishers for this review. A positive review was not required and the opinions expressed here are my own.

This is a really inspirational book especially for those of us who have lost loved ones and to know that we will see them again and that there really is a better place to be, when it's our time to leave this earth.
