This book I read on the Kindle. They are real stories about real people facing eternity. I loved this book so much that I never wanted it to end - which was why I only read a chapter at a time with plenty of time between each one. What got me most was how frequently God seemed to prepare people for that final meeting, and how often He responded to their wishes for how they wanted that Meeting to take place. For anyone struggling with a fear of death, this is THE book to recommend to them.

It's tough to walk the line between being the narrator and being an actual protagonist in every story. I didn't love the book but he did what he set out to do - tell sweet end of life stories. Some of the stories felt contrived and his personality felt forced both in life and in the book. There are a few stories that really shine and its all end of life stuff which makes it somewhat unique and deserving of respect. And even not loving it it has affected me in a really good way.
