Mr. Burpo wrote an inspirational book on the experience of his child while sick. This is the first book Mr. Burpo who is a minister has written. It is an easy read. The concept of heaven was strong within the entire story backed with readings from the Bible.
It was a frightening book when describing the illness of his son. However, as his son's health improved bits and pieces of his son discussing the experiences he encountered in a matter-of-fact tone. It was heartwarming, provided an experience that some day all people will experience, death.
I thought it was a believeable story. The author laid out the story, letting the reader decide. A difficult task when his son offer input that he was not famaliar with.
I recommend the book for all. Rather you have a spiritual or religious belief, or for those that do not. I didn't feel as though the author was trying to prove anything. Just relay his son's responses to his grave illness from the past.
