Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo

I confess I was a little skeptical when I first ordered this book because of its story - Colton’s trip to heaven - but naturally I was also curious to find out more about it.

I enjoyed the book very much, it was a sweet story of a kid who got to witness a glimpse of what heaven is really like, and I think even that’s extraordinary in itself. What I really liked about the story - and I believe it's what gives it its authenticity - is the way that Colton’s parents handled the information they kept receiving from Colton about his heaven experience. I liked the way they reacted towards it, that they compared everything with Scripture. They tried not to influence Colton’s story with their questions, so they were careful about how they encouraged him to talk about heaven.

Why I liked the book? Because it widened my creativity when I think about heaven and it gave me a little picture of how heaven might look like. And I think that’s important, because as Pete Wilson said once when referring to heaven “We can only desire what we can imagine”.

Here's a sneak peak of an interesting interview I found online:

I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com; book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
