aA beautifully written glimpse into heaven that will encourage those who doubt and thrill those who believe.a aRon Hall, coauthor of Same Kind of Different as Me aDo you remember the hospital, Colton?a Sonja said. aYes, mommy, I remember, a he said. aThatas where the angels sang to me.a When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they werenat expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followedaa story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boyas trip to heaven and back. Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgeryaand 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 areally, really biga God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Coltonas uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, aNobody is old and nobody wears glasses.a Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.What they werenat expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followedaa story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boyas trip to heaven and back.
