The heaven this boy experienced is extremely stereo typical of the Christian heaven, at least, as taught by most contemporary churches in the USA. That said, this story very well may be a glimpse into that part of heaven, the Christian heaven, but the accounting does not hold my interest enough to listen more than 2/3 the way through due to the amount of common belief structures built into the story it gives me some doubt as to whether it is an experience fully from that side of life and instead made from much which may have been heard by this child before, perhaps deeply buried in his subconscious mind and coming to light now as he begins to be able to more fully communicate, as he matures. I have no doubt this child has heard the stories he has repeated as part of his NDE experience many times over as a child, due to his father being a preacher, it is expected he would do so. Now, perhaps he is telling exactly what happened, maybe, I don't know. I suppose there is a Christian heaven waiting for the faithful which exactly mirrors what is told in this story, as taught in churches simply because that is what those souls expect and are comfortable to go through after "death".
It is my firm belief that there are many facets to heaven, many heavens which fit the expectations of the souls who gravitate to each of them, this being a story of just one of them. I think this story will be well received by the masses of Christians but keep in mind, this is just part of the story, one small part of that heaven which has mansions for each of us, no matter what religion or belief system.
There are a thousand paths to God, Namaste.
A Bookworm. Interested in all sorts of good books.
I enjoy the audio versions of books because I commute. I think I enjoyed hearing the author himself talk about his experiences at the beginning of this book. You can hear the emotional content of the story in the audio book that you do not get in the print version.
Colton. The child would just blurt out what he was thinking and feeling.
Colton telling his parents that he had a sister in heaven.
This book was made into a film already. I enjoyed the audio book better than the movie.
New to audible - enjoy a variety of authors from Chick Lit/Romance to Biographies and interesting personal stories! Nice to meet you .. :)
This is such a faith strengthening testimony that has me in a place of looking forward to meeting Jesus and seeing loved ones even as I still enjoy life on this side!
90 Minutes in Heaven - the experience of a person and their testimony clearly designed to encourage others now to strengthen their relationship with God so as to experience a beautiful eternity!
The authenticity of the story. It was inspiring to me
havent read anything that I could compare it to that was authentic and not a novel
no he is new to me
The book inspired me with wonder, to hope that I may also have the same experience one day in Heaven
The most enjoyable parts for me were hearing how Colton (the boy) revealed his experiences to his parents and their reactions to each revelation.
One of the most memorable moments was when Colton told his mom that he had another sister and that whole discussion.
Dean allows me to get a little sense of the emotion the family experienced.
Well, at this writing, today is the opening day for the actual movie, so this question is not necessary! I think the book's tagline is fine!
As a Christian myself, I found this book to be an amazing, inspirational story. It provides a possible glimpse into some details of the heavenly and spiritual world that most all of us can't see and won't see until we die and go to Heaven ourselves. It gave me a little insight into what I've read in the Bible. It was a very emotional and amazing story that has strengthened my prayer life and a story that I enjoyed very much. I've listened to it twice already.
For those who consider themselves Agnostic or Atheist, reading this book with an open mind may cause them to re-consider what God and Jesus say in the Bible and what it really means to be a Christian.
Yes because it is heartwarming, real, gives you hope on many levels, and I believe it as a Christian, and if I weren`t it woul still give me comfort.
The Bible. It is in keeping with what the Bible teaches.
Every day experiences in a story told in a way that you can relate. It sounds realistic, the emotions in his voice are just right and timing is perfect. It reels you in.
It convinced me thar regardless of whether all of these things truly happened to this child, they could have. There is nothing about this book that could do anything but bring glory to God by reading it and that it would bring hope to so many people and change their lives if they believe in what they read and apply thee belifs of Jesus, Heaven, and God in this book.
It is a life changing book and I am looking forward to seeing the movie with my church on Good Friday whrn it is released at the theater. I am glad I was able to hear it on Audible first.
This was a good book. I don't know if I believed the story but fun to listen too and made me think.
I enjoyed the narrator. But the book itself was a very touching encounter that will change my perspective and charge my faith!
That there is so much evidence of the truth from an innocent unknowing little boy. Jesus loves the children!!!!!!!!!!
I liked his enthusiasm and story telling ability.
Read (listen, lol) and you will enjoy it!! :)
not sure what other book I would compare to
Didn't really have a favorite scene
Felt for the parents as their son was in such an ill state and clinicians were having trouble figuring out what was wrong with the little boy.
Good book, liked the message....easy to listen to and follow, written simply.
I don't know. It was really just boring.
It was just not that interesting. It was like listening to a parent over-talk about their kid.
I just don't know why this book was such a seller.
