DVD Break: The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven (2010)
The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven - 2010 - DVD - TV Documentary - Watched at friend's house
Absolutely inspiring! A small group of us watched this and cried and rejoiced. The boy was almost decapitated and survived at 6 years old, is paralyzed from the neck down now but his life is amazing. He went to heaven while he was in a coma and describes that experience so beautifully. His family accept the miracle in their lives and of Alex's journey but they don't make it the focus of Alex's life. They have other children and try to lead as normal a life as possible. It is an amazing story of the community's outreach to the family in their time of need, the response of of other Christians in the emergency/police/medical field during this horrific time and the grace of God at work in a family's life making a tragedy become the positive turning point in all their lives. Twelve year old Alex was so impressive, he is so genuine and the face of Jesus just shines through him. An amazing story and must watch. It really gives you a perspective on your own life.

It doesn't matter though as I intend to keep adding my arcs read to the challenge site throughout the year as I did last year. But for the record this is *my* official list of 31 books for the Platinum Level of the challenge. The challenge blog will have me listed at over 30 soon enough. I'll be adding extras to the bottom of this list.

Excellent! I really enjoyed this biography of Dr Melinek's training. I have read a lot of books about both forensics and corpses; there is really nothing left to shock me. But Working Stiff is highly entertaining and interesting giving wonderful insight into both the medical profession itself, teaching circumstances and mostly the work that a medical examiner does. We also meet Melinek's coworkers and learn much about different speciality sidelines in anthropological forensics: the bone experts, the brain experts, etc. I also enjoyed the way Dr Melinek described how the ME's office truly works with law enforcement and when necessary the court system, giving TV viewers a much more accurate take on the relationship. Dr Melinek wrote this book along with her …
