Remarkable and inspiring
Retold by his father, "Heaven is for Real" is the true story of Colton Burpo's trip to heaven and back. When he was four, Colton had to undergo an emergency appendectomy. Overjoyed at his miraculous survival, his family never could have expected what emerged in the following months. They were astounded at what Colton recalled from his hospital stay: angels singing to him, sitting in Jesus' lap, seeing his great-grandfather whom he'd never met and meeting the sister he never knew he had because his mother miscarried before he was born.
Bonus material in this special movie edition of "Heaven is for Real" includes a new introduction, photos from the movie set, updates from Colton and his father Todd on recent events, as well as interviews with the movie's filmmakers and actors. The movie, starring Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo, premieres on 16th April. You can watch the trailer here: http://www.sonypictures.com/movies/heavenisforreal/
I had this book on my radar from the time it was first published but for some reason never got round to reading it. I am so glad I didn't pass up the chance to read the newly released movie edition of "Heaven is for Real". It is a truly remarkable and inspiring story. I have no doubt that it is a true story. Colton's father Todd is a pastor. He was as surprised as anyone would be when his son began recalling his experiences of heaven. Colton knew things that no four-year-old would know. Todd began testing his son's memories of heaven against the Bible and found that his Colton's recollections held up to Biblical truths.
"Heaven is for Real" will forever change the way you think of eternity. If you have lost a loved one, you will find comfort in Colton's experiences. Do not pass up the chance to read this book. by Sandra
