Book Review- Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo
I first heard of the book -"Heaven is For Real " from a clip on Yahoo. It was a media news clip about a little boy named Colton Burpo,who had made it through an emergency apendectomy and had a family who was overjoyed by his survival.
But what was to follow in the coming months, was to completely change their lives, and possibly those of others, that will hear Colton's story. A true story by a boy, not yet four years old, who had left his body during surgery and went to 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 is clear.
I truly enjoyed this book. I love reading religious stories, and about heaven, and the story itself had moments when it truly touched me and brought tears to my eyes.
This book will change the way you think about eternity and give you a glimpse of heaven.
This is an easy to read book, and once you start reading, won't be able to put it down.
