Heaven Is For Real: Book Review


Have you every wondered about what Heaven is really like? About what Jesus is like? About if you will see loved ones who have gone on the Heaven?

If so or even if you haven't I would highly recommend you read Heaven Is For Real. It is a true story about a little boys experience of going to Heaven. It is in simple terms and very easy to read. It will rock your faith to the core and be an eye opening experience.

Here is what the back cover of the book says:
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. 

Highly HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone.
