Heaven is for real

Heaven is for real, by todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent. I have to start by saying this is an amazing book. The write up on the back calls the story extraordinary and it truely is! We meet Colton Burpo who ends up needing an emergency appendectomy and almost didn't make it! He tells his parents about his trip to heaven and talking with God and Jesus and that he could even see them. He told them about things that they were doing during his surgery that he would have no knowledge of outside of being able to see it himself outside of his body! When he came back he was able to tell his parents of people he saw in heaven that he should have no knowledge about, such as a baby sister who miscarried years before and they never told the kids about her. Even seeing family that had passed years before he was born and being able to describe them and tell them things that they said to him that he'd have no natural knowledge of. We see Heaven through a child's eyes. I have no doubt that colton did indeed visit Heaven and see all that he did. I know there will be naysayers out there, and frankly yes they could have made it up? but for what purpose? Everything that Colton's father tells us about what Colton said in this book is completely in line with the Bible (I know because I checked lol). I love this story and have read it over and over again! This is one of those books you don't want to miss, and you need to have your own copy of, it absolutely is a must have for the personal library!!
