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.

    I loved and really enjoyed the experience of reading this book. In my opinion God is much bigger and powerful than theology can say or try to show about Him! So I could match almost all of the experiences writen in the book with the scriptures; I said "almost all" because I have to read and study more and find the rest. The Bible gives us new things everytime we read, so I am sure there are many more information to learn and match.

    I hope you may enjoy the book as I did!

    There are so many things in this book that don't line up with Scripture, but I'd like to focus on a few key things that anyone reading their Bible would know. There are only 3 accounts in the Bible where someone actually saw heaven: Ezekiel, Paul, and John. Each of them had an attitude of fear and awe. They were trembling and afraid of the mightiness of God. God did not give them a little chair to sit on next to the Holy Spirit. They fell on their faces like dead men. This book lacks the proper response to seeing the holiness of God face to face.

    Another thing you would know from reading your Bibles, is that it is not God's plan to bring people back from the dead to tell others about heaven. When Jesus told the parable of Lazarus and the rich man, the rich man asked Abraham to send Lazarus to warn his brothers. Abraham told him that if they do not believe Moses and the prophets, neither will they believe someone who comes back from the dead. Jesus is telling us that all we need for faith is the Scriptures, not near death experiences.

    This is an excellent first hand account of heaven told by a little boy, so you don't his opinions or fears, just the way it was.

    As I read the extraordinary experience of a little boy, who had a short trip to heaven while he was being operated, I felt his book is like a "wake up call" for me personally. A wake up call to be the best I can be as I live, why? Because heaven is so real! We never know when we will finish our earthly life and be there too, right?

    This in one of the book I would recommend reading for those missing their loved ones: miscarriage, sudden death, and those facing sickness and deathbed.

    This is the most compelling book I've read on the reality of Heaven. This is a very good read and easy to read by everyone. The events little Todd remembers after his time in surgery are amazing and can't be explained. You will love this book and pass it on to others to read, as I have. The movie about the book did not do the book justice. If you liked the movie, you will love the book!

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.
