Book Review: Amazing Adventures with Dev: His Voice, My Voice, Our Voice

By Melody L. Boulton and Devon Allen Merritt

We were given a copy of Amazing Adventures with Dev: His Voice, My Voice, Our Voice by Melody L. Boulton and Devon Allen Merritt in consideration of a review.

Amazing Adventures with Dev is the story of a mother and her second son, their lives together, and the loss of his life to a rare lung condition at the age of 23 years.

This book elicited some very strong emotional responses from me, especially as I tried to share some of the scenes with others.  Having also lost a child, I can understand the devastation, confusion, the questions...the endless “whys”. I can understand one wondering how one can possibly continue on without this child (regardless of age) in it any longer.  I cannot judge the way another parent processes their grief.  Grief can do strange things to a person and make a person do strange things.

Some parts of Amazing Adventures with Dev may seem strange or too “out there” to many.  It talks of reincarnation, how our souls are eternal beings, how life goes on after the death of the earthly body.  But, she is also delves into astrology and meeting with mediums and other things that I cannot relate to at all.  These things may be a turnoff to other Christians as well.  

There is no doubt this mother loves her son and always will.  I can understand never wanting to lose that relationship.  There is a strong, almost overwhelming feeling that this love has turned from parental love to worship.   I can understand intense love and I don’t doubt that our loved ones watch over us from the other side.  It seems, though, that she has made a deity of Devon.  This part of the book made me very uncomfortable.

Amazing Adventures with Dev  is a book that will definitely make you think. It gives plenty to ponder.  However, unless you are very well-grounded in your faith, it may cause confusion, and may not be the book for you.  If you are strong in your faith, then you will likely find it interesting to ponder the questions that it brings up.  Shared with others, it can lead to enlightening discussions.

Because I believe that calling on mediums goes against the teachings of the Bible, I cannot give the book all five points on our one-to-five scale. This book is well-written, with only a few areas missed by a proofreader.  I will give it a four because one sign of a good book is that it elicits strong emotional responses and Amazing Adventures with Dev most definitely achieved that!
