I recently read Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent and I found myself unable to put the book down. I read for a few hours straight, absorbed in the young boy’s story of the time his emergency appendectomy gave him the opportunity to travel to Heaven.
Colton Burpo was an ordinary young boy, who found himself in an extraordinary place as he was on the operating table. Colton vividly explains to his parents all of the wonders he saw in Heaven, starting with the sashes worn by all and the overall environment in Heaven. Although many people may question Colton’s experience, the book clearly shows that the experience he had is real as he was able to explain what is contained in the Bible without ever having heard the Biblical Words at such a young age. Colton met members of his family that he never knew existed which made me believe, without a doubt, that Colton did, in fact, travel to Heaven as his earthly body was being operated on.
This book is not a difficult read, and I would recommend it as the perfect gift for everyone! I cannot wait to share the story of the Burpo family with my family and friends.
