Heaven is For Real is a heart-warming tale of Christian Faith by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent.
Summary of the Book
When four year old Colton Burpo contracts appendicitis and is taken in for an emergency appendectomy, no one expected him to survive. A miraculous surgery brings Colton back from near-death. When he awakens, he begins to tell his family a story of his journey to heaven. It soon becomes apparent that Colton travelled to heaven in his near-death state. He begins to tell everyone about faith and God’s love for everyone. No one grows old in heaven, and no one wears glasses. Heaven isn’t an imaginary place, it is very real. All you need to get there is the faith of a child.
