This was a quick enjoyable read. As a Christian, I can't say this book taught me anything new or unusual about the after life and whatnot. There seems to be a lot of negative reaction to this story, even in the Christian world, but I don't really understand why. The sriptures are interpreted so differently by so many people. I wouldn't say that this story necessarily sheds so much light on which interpretations are correct. Here we have one individual's interpretation of what his four year old didn't fully understand and wasn't capable of explaining.

The real beauty of this story is the simplicity of God. He loves us. So much. And as Colton said, the real message of the story is that Heaven is for real.
