There are some interesting photos, mainly in colour, and the theme of the book is wonderful; that is, that we need to confess our sins, turn away from them [repent], and follow Jesus and His ways, in love, for the rest of our lives, then we shall be able to spend Eternity with Him.
The author's and the boy's [Segatashya's] love and dedication to Jesus is precious, in that he should endure such frightful circumstances [Chapter 10], and she would want the world to know about Jesus and go to such great lengths to achieve this, all through their great love for Him.
However, there is something about the "Jesus" who is revealed to the boy which does not sit right with me. I am not a critical person, and I do not want to be critical here, but we are called to test the spirits [1John 4:1], and we are told we shall know `them' by their fruit [Matthew 7:15,16]. There are many instances which I feel need testing, but I will only mention a few:
p.78,79: Whilst witnessing for Jesus, "Jesus", by a miracle, causes the boy to become naked. [This isn't the Jesus I have come to know or the Jesus in the bible. It looks like mockery and humiliation to me, and it isn't Jesus who is into that.]
PP.103&140: "Jesus" teaches him to do penance and to tell the world they must practice penance. [This isn't biblical.]
P.106: "Jesus" tells him that if satan confesses his sins he would be forgiven and allowed back into Heaven. [Hebrews 6:4-6 reveals otherwise.]
p.144,145: "Jesus" tells him that Purgatory is for those who have been good in life but died with few sins..... and need to be purified before entering Heaven. [Not biblical.]
p152,153: "Jesus" sent Mary, who somehow arranged for the boy to be beaten up, by smashing him to the ground 15 times in dreadful pain and agony, and was oblivious to his pleas for mercy. [Jesus' fruits are: love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness and temperance [Galatians 5:22,23]; the devil's fruits are: walking round like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour [1Peter 5:8]. This wanton violence and brutality to the boy is not from the real Jesus in the bible.]
p.188: "Jesus" seems to put pressure on the boy. [Yet Jesus says: I am meek and lowly in heart..... my yoke is easy and my burden is light [Matthew 11:29,30.]]
To summarise: The "Jesus" who revealed himself to the boy is on occasion demanding, ushering in violence, and expecting him to do unbiblical things. This is in stark contrast to the real Jesus in the bible.
The bible is our guide, and unless what is said and reported is in line with the bible, then I would need to be very cautious and discount it.
My books are uplifting, loved and treasured. I enjoy reading them several times. Sadly, I don't feel the same about this book. I bought it with the best intentions and was thrilled to do so, but I am now sorry that I did. My challenge now, is how to dispose of it, such that others will not be exposed to 'revelation' which is not completely biblical.
I would say that I do on occasion and have in the past, spent a lot of time researching people's claims of NDE's and visions and I am dubious of nearly all of them. Enter "The Boy Who Met Jesus" and I thought I would get it and see if there was anything I could glean from it. I have to say that I was disappointed after the first few pages to learn that this book was Catholic. Moreover, not just that it was Catholic but because, the author, who said she had knew the boy in question, actually got much of the information from interviews that the boy (Segatashya) gave to the Catholic Church. In other words, she (the author) approached the Catholic Church to obtain much of her material.
If I know anything I know this: It's that you cannot trust the Catholic Church to verify anything and unless I knew for sure that these words came out of the boys mouth first hand, I would not believe a word of it. So I quit reading it as I could not trust the information therein. Very disappointing indeed.
Though most of the book relates to the authors younger years, of her obvious love of God and his Blessed Mother and that there, in her country of birth Our Blessed Lord deemed to appear to a young Pagan boy. it was a joy to read.
Some reviewers dismiss it because, it's Catholic! However, young Segatashya was a Pagan and Jesus sort him out to spread his word. What came across loud and clear, God loves us ALL, no matter what Religon we practise or don't. The messages call us to return to God, ALL of us. T
he same messages have been related over the past 100 years and still are, from Medujorie in Croatia.
