Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by
Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent

EPUB, MOBI, AZW3, PDF  / 163 pages / 3 MB

A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.

Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.

Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.

“You will be moved by the honest, simple, childlike accounts of a little boywho has been  to heaven.  I t’s compelling and convincing.  It’s a book you should  read.  If you’re  ready  to go  to heaven,  this book will  inspire you.  If you’re  not  ready  for  heaven,  allow  a  little  child  to  lead  you.  Like Coltonsays, Heaven Is for Real.”
— Don Piper Speaker and Author, 90 Minutes in Heaven

“Every now and again a manuscript comes across my desk where the title intrigues  me.  That’s  what  happened  with  this  particular  book  called Heaven  Is  for Real.  I   thought  I ’d  just skim  through  it, but  I  couldn’t put  it down.  I  read  it  from cover  to cover.  I  was so  impacted by  the story.  I t’s abook that will not only make you love God more and fear death less, but itwill help you understand that heaven is not a place where we just sit around for a thousand years singing Kumbaya; it’s a place where we begin to live as we were always meant to live, before the fall. I f heaven is something thatintrigues you, or troubles you, if you wonder what our lives will be like, then I highly recommend this book.”
