Book Review: Heaven is For Real...Did Jesus have blue eyes?
4 Year Old's Near Death Experience
Heaven is for real.....or is it?This book is intriguing from the moment you turn the first page. Many of my friends have read it in one sitting (I did also....picked it up after dinner and finished in the wee hours). The writer does a great job of reeling your emotions in from the first chapter. It appeals on every level to readers. It pulls at your heart strings from the beginning because if you have a family or a small child that has been sick then you can immediately empathize with the main characters.
Another mystifying part of the book is that no one knows what lies beyond death. (We take what we know about it from books and faith). It sparks our curiosity and compells us to read further and to examine what this boy experienced. We then are caught up into deciphering what we believe and what we want to believe about this book.
This book whether you believe it or not reveals one small persons convictions. An interesting point to consider that surfaces in the book is the mention that Jesus has blue eyes! I have never given much thought to this idea before or since then but it is being seriously considered since being uncovered in this book. It has been researched and discovered that there are Jews who are pale-skinned. Some jews have been reported to have blue eyes. Believe it or not, not all jews match up to our stereotypes. I googled for pictures of Jews and many people appeared with blue eyes. According to Yahoo!Answers...."the fact that Jews become Jewish at birth has nothing to do with genetics. Children of Jewish mothers inherit the COVENANT between God and His people, Israel." No one so far has written a book falsifying any of the evidence in this book. In fact, there are no inconsistencies between this book and medical facts. There are many books written about NDE or near death experiences and many of them suggest a higher power or a heaven....but none of them that I am aware of are written from the perspective of a four year old child.
