Book Review: Held by the Hand of God by Joe Laws


Held by the Hand of God: Why Am I Alive?

Publication Date: December 23, 2013

1 Star= Closed The Book

Held by the Hand of God by Joe Laws explores the question of why he was allowed to live after an accident that should have killed him. As Joe Laws explores his experience of seeing heaven, he wonders what he should do with the information. Joe Laws takes the rest of the book discussing his experience of seeing Heaven and being held in the palm of God’s hands. Even though he questions why he was chosen to see Heaven he hopes his story will inspire those who are going through pain and suffering.

In his introduction, Laws warns the reader that he writes exactly as he talks. This style of writing made it difficult to focus on the intent of the book. One chapter discussed his experience in heaven and several chapters later he would describe the same experience. While many have talked about their near death experiences, Laws experiences border on unbelievable and un-comprehendible. This is not a book I would recommend.
