I’ll admit, I began reading the book with some skepticism. I absolutely believe in a personal relationship with a loving God. I absolutely believe that Heaven is real and God desires that those who love him spend eternity with him in Heaven. I struggle with the idea of a person dying, going to heaven, experiencing wondrous joy and peace and then being allowed to return to earth.

I appreciated the fact that Dr. Neal’s book seems to be more about God’s unending love, his plan for our lives, and his intervention in our lives to accomplish his plans and purposes, than her journey into heaven. That journey served a purpose and was part of the plan God had for her life.

Although not overtly evangelistic, the book offers hope and encouragement for those dealing with the pain of earthly existence, and makes it clear that hope is possible through faith in God.

I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
