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. Thats 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 werent expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followeda story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boys trip to heaven and back.
Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgeryand 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 Coltons 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.
Todd Burpo is pastor of Crossroads Wesleyan and a volunteer fireman. He and his wife, Sonja, have four children: Colton is an active teenager; he has an older sister, Cassie; a younger brother, Colby; and a very special sister he met in heaven, yet to be named.
Lynn Vincent is the New York Times best-selling writer of Heaven Is for Real and Same Kind of Different As Me. The author or coauthor of ten books, Lynn has sold 12 million copies since 2006. She worked for eleven years as a writer and editor at the national news biweekly WORLD magazine and is a U.S. Navy veteran.

Jordan McCord1 Stars Out Of 5Beyond the bounds of the sufficiency of the WordMay 6, 2014Jordan McCordQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Wow. And we buy this as non fiction? This goes way too far.
... the infallibility of preschoolers' hallucinations. Saddens me that this stuff sells.
Q: I was wondering if the coming war that Todd thinks is Armageddon happens during his normal lifetime or long afterward? It wasn't clear to me if Colton was seeing this from heaven (perhaps after the rapture) during Todd's lifetime?? or if it occurs a long long time in the future after Todd has been in heaven for a long time??
Q: Why is the Spainsh version cheaper than the english version? CONFUSEd
Q: Would this book be able to understand by a 7 yr old? I'm thinking of buying a book for my niece for Easter and I'm wondering if an advanced reader who is a believer would be able to understand this book...is it children vocabulary or rewritten from an adults perspective and editing?
