Heaven Hears: The True Story of What Happened When Pat Boone Asked the World to Pray for His Grandson's Survival by Lindy Boone Michaelis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Heaven Hears is a true story about an answered prayer. This wasn't just one prayer by one family. It ended up being thousands of prayers by thousands of families all across this nation. Ryan Boone has been saved for a reason and God must surely have bigger plans for him.
"On June 19, 2001, Ryan
Corbin, grandson of Pat Boone, accidently stepped through a skylight and
fell three stories onto a cement floor. When he broke through that
roof, Ryan fell into a very different life from the one he had before as
the beloved son of Lindy Boone Michaelis and first grandson of
entertainment icon Pat Boone. As Ryan lingered between life and death in
intensive care at UCLA Medical Center, Pat and Lindy decided to take
action, in a big way; they went on "Larry King Live," shared their
faith, and asked millions of TV viewers to pray for Ryan. And so, they
prayed. "Heaven Hears" is an unbelievable story of answered prayer--and
it's not over yet. This book will inspire you to look for answers to
prayer and to see God's miracles."
I was less enthused by the history of Lindy. I just felt some of her history was unnecessary and poorly written. Her faith was unshakeable and undeniable. I would like to have heard more about Ryan and his story, rather than Lindy's, that's all. I'm not bashing her by any means. God is great and God definitely answers prayers!
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by Tyndale Publishers for my honest review of this book.
