I read this book in one evening. It’s written simply and is easy to read. The story of Colton really pulled me in, and I was eager to see what he would describe next. He talks about the colors in heaven and the people he meets there, including a sister who had been miscarried. Every observation is given matter-of-factly. Colton’s pure, childlike faith shines through.
I made a point of not reading other reviews (especially theological ones) before I read this book. I could just see theologians of all varieties tearing it apart. And while I don’t take Colton’s knowledge of heaven as the Gospel truth in every detail, I don’t doubt that he really had this experience. I appreciated how many Bible verses were included to compare his observations to. Occasionally it seemed to be a stretch to apply a particular one, but for the most part, what Colton saw lined up with what the Bible says.
Colton believes whole-heartedly and without wavering in the truth of God’s existence and in the boundless capacity of His love. Faith doesn’t have to be complicated. Sometimes it takes a three-year-old to remind us of that.
