“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”

When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back. Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born.

He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read. With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”

Breaks My Heart
Even though Mr. Burpo contradicts the Bible over and over again, he would manipulate his readers by appealing to the honesty of a child. I do not doubt the sincerity of this man or his son, but they have put experience over the word of God in this manipulative work. If you believe that God's word is the final authority for all matters of faith and practice you will, hate this book. If you like warm fuzzy stuff and really don't care if it is true or not you may enjoy it.

Incredibly Golden
This is one of those books you cannot put down. This reveals all that I have been told and quite frankly much much more. This is an eye opener for any unbelivever who has questions and any believer who might have his or her doubts. This will, I promise you, change your life and the way you see Heaven FOREVER. Thank you thank you thank you for sharing your journey with us. We are so blessed because of it.

Kindest Regards,
Karen

Must must must read
Heaven is for Real is one of those books that I could not put down. In fact, I was already going through passages multiple times before I completed the book. I'm not going to give a lot of detail because that would ruin the book for you and this is one book that you are going to read.

“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”

The writing is so absorbing and the topics so compelling that you can not put the book down. Imagine your 3-year-old child saying this to you. What would you do? This is the story of a pastor and his family nearly losing their young son and how God turned the terror into triumph.

As a skeptic, I greatly appreciated the style of the book, that is, that the evidence is presented unpolished. You read the conclusions of the pastor and his wife, but even then you participate in the discussion as they slowly move away from their down denial and astonishment. What will you do with the evidence?

I purchased the audio version from ChristianAudio.com discounted as a featured selection.

5 star
I read this book in just a matter of hours. It was awesome. I felt like I had been to heaven myself. Our family has had some real trials, giving birth to a severely disabled son and I only could imagine the pain the family went through. But then to have a little one tell you all about heaven...wow!!!!!! I want to purchase soon the audio book for my Mom and husband to listen to. Thank you and God Bless
