Colin S. Smith has written a very interesting book from the viewpoint of the thief on the cross. Heaven, How I Got Here discusses what the thief’s life was like, how he ended up on the cross, and how we can become a faithful Christians.
Smith combines the thief’s old faith, new faith, and what can happen to us if we believe and have faith.

My thoughts- I thought Heaven How I Got here, by Colin S. Smith, was simply going to be about the thief’s experience on the cross and nothing more. I was wrong. There was so much more about how and why we should trust in God.
The fact that the thief was able to be in heaven with Jesus that day should give all of us great hope. He had faith and a desire to know Jesus. The thief was not perfect and we do not need to be perfect to join His kingdom. That is the most important thing we need to remember. Jesus will take us at any stage. We just need to believe in him.
I think one of the best parts of the book is the Q & A section at the end of the book with Smith, because it explains why he wrote the book.
This book is perfect for those who want to know more about Christianity or need to come back to Jesus. I highly recommend it.
