Book Review: Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo

Sonja and Todd Burpo’s amazing story of their son’s journey to heaven and back is a book of discovery. After nearly losing their son during an emergency appendectomy they are treated to a slow revelation of what happened during the minutes when they had nearly lost hope.

But lost hope is the opposite of what this book is about. Over the next several years Colton shares what he saw in a matter of fact, every day, little boy way. “Of course I sat on Jesus’ lap – doesn’t everybody?” is his approach to his experience. Colton’s straightforward faith and revelations of meeting people he couldn’t have known is what convinces his parents that what their little boy saw was real.

Colton’s experience in the hospital was anything but normal, and filled with awe-inspiring episodes that leave his parents and the reader with the assurance that heaven is for real.

I received a free copy of this book for review from Booksneeze. I was not required to write a positive review.
