Do you believe that Heaven is a real place?
You will if you read Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo. Todd is a pastor and the father of Colton Burpo, the most astonishing little boy you would ever hope to know. At the age of three and a half, Colton was seriously ill and in the hospital, and during that time, he went to Heaven, met Jesus and had some incredible adventures. Then he came back to earth, and he has been here ever since.
His parents knew nothing about Colton’s Heavenly visit. They learned of it quite by accident when some time later the family drove by the hospital and his mother ask Colton if he remembered staying there.
[“Yes, Mommy, I remember!” he said, according to page # xvii of the book. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”]
From that moment on Colton’s parents, Todd and Sonja Burpo, started asking questions, and they soon learned some amazing facts about Heaven and the people who live there. You will be amazed, too, when you read
Heaven Is For Real –A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back.
After you have read the book, you will have a better understanding of child-like faith in God, and there is a good chance you will never fear death or dying again. Instead, you will be eager to go to Heaven when your time on earth ends—to see what Colton saw and know what he knows.
With a score from 1 to 5, I give this book five stars.
It’s that good.
