When most people think about God, they picture a grumpy old man in the sky handing out impossible rules and smiting people. It’s not often that we have the opportunity to see God as the inventor of humor and a connoisseur of friendship. Knocking on Heaven’s Door explores the relationship between a little boy named Spencer and his best friend—God. This collection of comic strips (with behind-the-scenes notes from writer/comedian Tommy Blaze and artist Nate Fakes), is equally whimsical and profound.
As author Tommy Blaze puts it,
If Knocking on Heaven’s Door is about anything, it’s about our relationship with God and the understanding that He wants to be included in our everyday lives, no matter how seemingly trivial or insipid. . . . How could Spencer truly have a personal relationship with an omnipotent being so clearly superior to him? The answer is in the question. God can do anything He wants, which includes empathizing with a little kid and really getting down on his level.

A 7year old boy named Spencer has the most wonderful relationship with God. They are best buds, and even if God get's somewhat tetchy some times, He is always gentle and mindful of the 7year-old's mind and grasp. I wish I could have had that kind of relationship with my Heavenly Father.

I have rarely seen anything more delightful than KOHD. I have purchased multiple copies to give away because when something beautiful comes down the pike, I MUST share it as much as I can. The story is the "Best Buddy" relationship between a 7-year old boy and God, and I pray that more children and adults find this kind of heartwarming interaction with their creator.

KOHD is heartwarming, charming and makes me want "more". I gave the first copy to my Sunday School teacher for his granddaughter, but he won't give it to her because he wants to keep it himself, so of course, I had to order more. It lifts my heart to know that there are still people who are inspired to write, draw, and read such wonderful things.
