Publisher's Description

“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.

    Excellent and written to where I could 'see' myself there in heaven. A child could not have made this up. It was Biblicaly based.

    Wow. And we buy this as non fiction? This goes way too far.

    ... the infallibility of preschoolers' hallucinations. Saddens me that this stuff sells.

Q: I was wondering if the coming war that Todd thinks is Armageddon happens during his normal lifetime or long afterward? It wasn't clear to me if Colton was seeing this from heaven (perhaps after the rapture) during Todd's lifetime?? or if it occurs a long long time in the future after Todd has been in heaven for a long time??

A: The book does not clarify or set a timeline for when "The Coming War" is supposed to take place.

Q: Why is the Spainsh version cheaper than the english version? CONFUSEd

A: The cost for this item is determined by the publisher.

Q: Would this book be able to understand by a 7 yr old? I'm thinking of buying a book for my niece for Easter and I'm wondering if an advanced reader who is a believer would be able to understand this book...is it children vocabulary or rewritten from an adults perspective and editing?

A: This book is written from an adult perspective and contains scenarios that may be difficult for even a well-read 7 year-old to understand.
