Don't waste your money on this book!!! A boy that was SEDATED has a dream about what his parents were always telling him about: heaven, Jesus, etc. I can't believe anyone would be gullible enough to believe it!
Did you read the book? Anything that brings a reader to have thoughts of God and heaven can't be a waste of money. Heaven is for real. Maybe you don't need this book to tell you heaven is real, but it may help someone seek God and salvation through Jesus for eternal life in heaven. That's not a waste.
I honestly think that a 3-4 year child is not old enough to have been exposed to that much biblical knowledge to have been as specific as he was. What children that age are taught comes nowhere near what he stated. May be just my opinion, but from what I learned just last night in bible study Colton is right on the money! I ask you, how many 3 and 4-year-old children are taught from the Books of Isaiah and Revelation?
This book gave me a sense of calm about death that I had not had beforehand, whether it's pure truth or not. I loved this little book and have recommended it to many of my friends! BTW, Wal-mart charges much more for this book than Amazon does.
The children of evangelical pastors are. Even if not directly, they may overhear adult conversations about it. I don't doubt that this boy is very smart, but to me, it's like my 2 yo daughter dreaming about Clifford and describing her dreams in great detail that happen to match the books we read to her daily...that doesn't make Clifford real!
Watching this family on TV and then reading the book gave me a spiritual nudge that I needed. It sure beats all the negativity that we are surrounded by in this world. If heaven is a smidgen as beautiful as colten describes then I'm all for moving on when it's time.
