HEAVEN IS FOR REAL by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent

Thomas Nelson publishing

The Burpo family had already been through several health emergencies, when their almost 4 year old son, Colton, started having stomach problems.  5 days in, it is discovered that he has a ruptured appendix and is operated on, with little chance he will survive.  But, survive, he does, and a few months later, Colton starts telling his father, Todd, who is a minister, things that there is no way he could have known, about the day of his surgery.  And then he tells his father that he sat in Jesus' lap, and met Todd's grandfather,Pop, who died over 23 years before Colton was born, and other people he met, including a 'sister' who is in Heaven waiting to meet her mom and dad and who doesn't have a name.  Colton had no knowledge before this, that before he was born, they had lost a baby, only 2 months into the pregnancy, and that his parents had no clue if the baby was a boy or a girl.

If you only read one more book in your lifetime, you need to read this one.  If you didn't believe before this, I think you will after reading.

I recieved a copy of this book to read and review from Booksneeze.  I received no other compensation.
All opinions expressed here are my own.
