Of events at the accident scene and in the hospital while he was unconscious. Of the angels that took him through the gates of heaven itself. Of the unearthly music that sounded just terrible to a six-year-old. And, most amazing of all . . . Of meeting and talking to Jesus. The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven is a story of an ordinary boys most extraordinary journey. As you see heaven and earth through Alexs eyes, youll come away with new insights on miracles, life beyond this world, and the power of a fathers love.
