Heaven Hears

HEAVEN HEARS: The True Story of What Happened When Pat Boone Asked the World to Pray for His Grandson’s Survival (Tyndale, 2013), by Lindy Boone Michaelis with Susy Flory, is an unforgettable story about a grandfather’s faith, a mother’s love, and a son who wouldn’t give up (Foreword by Pat Boone. Afterword by Debby Boone)

On June 19, 2001, Ryan Corbin, grandson of Pat Boone, accidentally stepped through a skylight and fell three stories onto a cement floor. When he broke through that roof, Ryan fell into a very different life from the one he had before as the beloved son of Lindy Boone Michaelis and first grandson of entertainment icon Pat Boone. As Ryan lingered between life and death in intensive care at UCLA Medical Center, Pat and Lindy decided to take action, in a big way; they went on Larry King Live, shared their faith, and asked millions of TV viewers to pray for Ryan. And so, they prayed. Heaven Hears is an unbelievable story of answered prayer—and it’s not over yet. This book will inspire you to look for answers to prayer and to see God’s miracles.

“This is one of the most amazing stories of love I’ve ever witnessed.”
(Rick Warren, Pastor of Saddleback Church and author of The Purpose Driven Life)

“This is a wonderful book. I am proud to have played a small part in this incredible story of love and recovery. It is a must for your library.” (Larry King)
