Publisher Comments:

A beautifully written glimpse into heaven that will encourage those who doubt and thrill those who believe.

-Ron Hall, coauthor of Same Kind of Different as Me

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.

Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.

Synopsis:

This is the true story of Colton Burpo, the four-year old son of a small-town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven.

Synopsis:

This book is amazing! It is a quick read. The imaages that this boy talks about are astonding. One may think this is not real. Or that he only saw the these images because his father was a precher. My father recently passed. Just before he passed he started praying over and over again. He started talking to the angels around him. He was talking to the children that were gathering around him. Things he was saying were just as this little boy discribed in the book. A must read. Very powerful!!
