“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.”

Fake story
Fake - This story is a lie and should not be rewarded

The boy has recently admitted it was all a big lie!

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.
