Heaven's Lessons

Steve Sjogren is the author of the book "Heaven's Lessons". The preview I read prior to requesting this particular book led me to believe that Steve would be sharing a lot about what happened surrounding the day he died, heard from the Lord, but was revived. Don't get me wrong, Steve does talk about his experience. However, I feel that he concentrates on how you and I should live life after his experience. I'm all for self-help books and frequently read them. This came across more as a self-help book than his testimony.

I would have liked to hear more about Steve's testimony, than him directing me how I should live. I am a God-fearing woman and have much to learn. I do not feel that I'm above instruction. However, the way this book was presented, I was expecting an uplifting testimony of Christ's love. I hesitated to write such a frank review, but that is what this blog is about.

Usually when I read a book, I have someone in mind that I can lend the book to when I complete it. However, that did not occur with this particular read. It's not a book that I would highly recommend.

I received a complimentary copy of "Heaven's Lessons" from Thomas Nelson. This is my opinion alone and was not paid to write this review.
