This book would be so much more believable if the author's last name was not Malarkey. Ha! There would have been a time when I would not only have refused to have read this, but most certainly would have insisted that the whole thing was made up.

As my friend Milton says, "How come these books always have the little white chirrens getting a sneak peak at Heaven?"

Anyway, I'm reading it and enjoying it and am inclined to believe it. Definitely not for everyone, but if you're in to this kind of thing. . .

Update: I finished this book today and I really liked it. I appreciated how the author addresses that many including in the faith community are going to have difficulty with this story for lack of a theology to wrap around it. I further appreciate his honesty in his inclusion of the marital and family distress and the many moments of grief and pain his family experienced. A very refreshing, hope-inspiring read.
