Publisher's Summary

Where is hope when there is no hope?

First-time parents Joe and Tahni Cullen were thrust into the confusing world of autism when their toddler, Josiah, suddenly lost his ability to speak, play, and socialize. The diagnosis: Autism Spectrum Disorder. In their attempts to see Josiah recover and regain speech, the Cullens underwent overwhelming physical, emotional, and financial struggles. While other kids around him improved, Josiah only got worse.

Five years later, Josiah, who had not been formally taught to read or write, suddenly began to type on his iPad profound paragraphs about God, science, history, business, music, strangers, and heaven. Josiah's eye-opening visions, heavenly encounters, and supernatural experiences forced his family out of their comfort zone and predictable theology, catapulting them into a mind-blowing love encounter with Jesus.

  • Find hope in hardship.
  • Catch a fresh glimpse of heaven.
  • Learn to hear and trust God's voice.
  • Identify the roles of Father, Son, and Spirit.
  • Be aware of the workings of angels, and much more!

Follow a trail of truth into Josiah's mysterious world, and see why his family and friends can no longer stay silent.

This is the Most important book in the last 1,900 years

You will be blown away and listen to this book over and over and over again. Waves of understanding, insight, joy and healing will rollover you as you sit under the words of wisdom which bubble out of this little Fire-Boy's mouth. I could not recommend this book any more urgently or potently to you. Come with an open heart and mind and you will be fully satisfied. I find this book to advance human philosophy, cosmology, metaphysics, spiritual understanding and theology far past the reaches we have known before. Papa God is the best. If you don't already know that intimately, you soon will.

Awestruck

This book was amazing! The true story of a family with an autistic child that eventually was able to communicate, and it turned out he was going to heaven and hearing Gods voice and seeing Angels. This book is written like a novel and is impossible to put down until completed!!!

I Loved EVERYTHING about this book!

I loved this book so much, I’m going to listen to it again as soon as I finish this review. Josiah, his family and everyone he encounters is blessed by our God! I had this book in my Audible wish list for months. If I’d known how excited I would be about God, Heaven and God’s plan for me after listening to Josiah’s words, I’d have listened to it sooner. I’m joining FaceBook again ... and Friending Josiah!

Child's voice is hard to understand

This is an excellent true story of a boy whose voice was stolen by autism, but then regifted in sorts by God. Very moving and poignant. I will forever think about heaven in a very different light after this book. My only concern was that the child's voice was difficult to understand in the audible probably due to the unusual manner in which he writes. Overall, i highly recommend to Christian listeners! :)

I'll never look at life the same way again

It was a little slow to start but after that the book was totally mind-blowing!!! My seven-year-old, 9 year old, and 12 year old kids loved it too.

Outstanding

One of the most profound books I’ve ever encountered. I’m not one to reread books, but this was so extraordinary, I hope to order the paperback and devotional to further study and grasp some of the truths on these pages, truly life-altering perspective and morsels from the Father and from heaven scattered throughout these pages. You will be blessed.

I’m honestly not usually one to write reviews, but I was so taken by this book I’ve been trying to tell anyone who will listen about it. Please read it.

life changing!

I too am broken and trapped in a body that doesn't function as it should but the Lord has used this book to give me fresh hope, peace and a hunger for more of Jesus and a deeper relationship with G-d. Inspirational story of an incredible love. Genuinely fed up it ended so please excuse me, I need to listen to it again!

Awesome

loved it. Appreciated the insight into families dealing with such overwhelming challenges and Josiahs perspective. I loved seeing how our Wonderful God is always at work in peoples lives. However I found it easier to understand Josiah's narrator after I
slowed the speed to less than 1x. Well done Josiah and your beautiful family. thank you for being brave enough to share this amazing story. I would love to know more about how your journey will unfold. thank you again.
