Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

"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.

Book 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.

Rated 4.9 out of 5★ by 106reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Wonderful to read!! Easy to read. I' d Recommend this for just about any age. Religious or not you will enjoy this book! 01/06/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Highly recommended! I read this book in one cold and blustery evening while curled up on my couch. I highly, highly recommend reading it. I also purchased this book as a Christmas gift, one for each of my children and one for my neighbor. It is an inspirational story, very well written, and contains an innocent dialog of a young boys memory while he was in heaven. There, he saw things he did not know from here on 'earth' and it actually gave me 'goose bumps' at times. You can interpret this book any way you wish, but for me, it is one more step towards my Christian belief validation. 01/03/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Fabulous book. I have given several away as gifts! 01/17/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I thought this was a very inspiring book. I thought this book was very inspiring. I read it late into the nigt. It's well worth the money. But I would buy it on Wal-Mart's site as it costs $5.00 less than "in store". 08/09/2011

Rated 5 out of 5★ by AWESOME BOOK!!! I RECOMMEND FOR ALL BELIEVERS AND NON BELIEVERS TO READ THIS BOOK!!! 10/31/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by encouraged This story will encourage you if you believe in the Lord, and might just cause you seek Him if you are unsure of your faith and beliefs. I have often been skeptical of these types of stories, but there is no pretense with children. God shows His glory in many ways...this is an example of that. 03/04/2011
