  • I agree gwen. I have always believed that heaven and hell are not some mystical place rather here on earth but is more than just sinning that causes us to see it. I think it is personal.

  • What's amazing about stories like this are the facts that he knew. He knew his mom had miscarried and where his dad was when he was praying privately. It gives us all hope at a minimum.

  • I watched the segment and read the book and do believe that it was something that the child did see. However, the book is much more than just what the child saw...there is quite a bit (too much, IMHO) "preaching" in it done by the father. I was told this was a great book to recommend for people who have lost loved ones, but after reading it, I'm not so sure.

    A GREAT book that I would recommend again and again and again is The Shack. (I know that wasn't asked, but thought I'd throw it out there...LOL)

  • It was a child's interpretation of the Other Side. I saw the same things in my own N.D.E., but I interpreted them differently because I was an adult with more experience.

  • oh that is that 3 year old boy who was sick and believed he saw heaven and wasn't his father a preacher? I will look but if it is the same it is nothing more than a dream
