This book was a very quick read. The writing is more simple, but I think that due to the nature of it, that actually helps the book. I think 12 year olds could easily read this and be able to understand what Burpo wanted to communicate. I do think however, that it's a book that needs to be discussed. It is a conversation starter.

I was intrigued by Colton Burpo's descriptions of Heaven. As a Messianic, I believe in Christ, and Heaven. Yes, this book is "aimed" to believers, but it's not preachy, and non-believers can enjoy it as well of course.

I found it interesting how the child knew a ton of things that no one had ever told him.
I would recommend this book if you liked the movie (which is super close to the book) or if you want to know what a boy saw when he went to Heaven.

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!!

Heaven is for Real is an excellent book of a true well-written story. It is so remarkable that a young boy, not yet four years old, was able to return from "death" during an emergency operation. He tells exceptional details and descriptions of his short time being in heaven. It renewed my faith and beliefs.

"Synopsis" by , A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how reaaally big God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit shoots down power from heaven to help us.

Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.
