Scritto da un pastore metodista del Nebraska racconta l'esperienza, vissuta dal figlioletto, di "viaggio" in Paradiso. Leggendolo non si può fare a meno di percepire tutta la fede del pastore Todd, dell'importanza che Dio ha nella sua vita. Lettura interessante anche se fatico a credere negli angeli con le ali e nel Paradiso descritto come avviene in questo libro. Probabilmente è una questione del tipo di credo che professiamo.

Our confidence in the promise of eternity rests on the Word of God, not the testimony of those who claim to have visited. To say, "it is in the Bible, but now I believe it because someone has a compelling story," is to insult the sufficiency of Scripture. There is much theologically troubling regarding this account along with others. Primarily, the focus of comfort is on the reunion with other humans, or the niceness of Jesus, not on the unspeakable glory of God as in Scriptural visions. Hebrews 11 makes it clear that none have gone before have "received what was promised" that we all might be glorified together. Our resurrected bodies are received at return of Christ when the dead are raised.
As for the theological information that the son apparently learned in heaven, as the pastor of a four year old girl, we have covered all these topics and I find it hard to believe a pastor would not have had those conversations on multiple occasions with their children. Not to mention the high exposure to church lessons and books that his son would have had. The other information regarding the grandfather and miscarriage could have been gleaned through conversations that the child overheard. However, there is a more sinister possibility in all of these accounts. Satan masks as an angel of light. The demons of Jesus' day were rebuked for openly proclaiming him as the Son of God, even though those who heard would have been saved if they had believed it. Paul rebuked the demon possessed girl who was proclaiming, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved." What the agenda would be, we cannot say, unless it is to mix in false teaching, or to turn our focus onto a reunion in the sky with confidence based on extra-biblical testimony over a focus on sin and repentance through the gospel and the glory of God.
Like "90 Minutes in Heaven", there is an authorial self-focus in this account that is also troubling - though not to the same degree as Don Piper's story.
