"This story has incredible intrigue and emotional power." --Randall Wallace, Director Heaven Is for Real, We Were Soldiers, and Secretariat "Do you remember the hospital, Colton?" Sonja said."Yes, mommy, I remember," he said. "That's where the angels sang to me." When four-year-old 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 following months-a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy's trip to heaven and back. This true story, retold by his father but using Colton's uniquely simple words, 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 believe in God and heaven but this book was ridiculous. Angels carry swords and bows and arrows! God sits on a big throne!! All a load of rubbish. If this was genuinely the boys experiences then I think he has a vivid imagination. But I think this is a piece of right wing religious propaganda thought up by people with little faith who try to hide their doubts by pushing the literal translation of the Bible. it is utter rubbish - avoid at all costs.

I had heard so much about the book that I had to get it and read it for myself. It opened up a whole new concept about Heaven and what it's like. Amazing story.

Yes, I believe it happened.
This is an incredible story of a little boy's experience of heaven - but it rings true. He meets his great grandfather. While he does not recognize a picture of him at age 64 before his death, he does pick him out of a picture of a family group when the man was 29! A must read for everyone who hopes to see life after death!
