Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back- a book introduction
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 “really 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.
1. The first book I received was titled “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo. Needless to say, as a pastor I was skeptical! I thought, Oh no, not another I’ve been to heaven book! Beginning with 90 minutes in Heaven, the market has been flooded by books of people’s accounts of their journey to Heaven, Hell, and the Laundromat! I assumed this book would be little different and I thought I’d wind up relegating this book to the “not worth my time” pile. I was wrong.
“Heaven is for Real” is a heartwarming, simple, and surprisingly biblical glimpse into a little four year old boy’s journey into Heaven. Colton Burpo was four year’s old when he found himself at death’s door. His family didn’t realize he had made his amazing journey until small but shocking revelations that amazed and bewildered his parents began to leak out. Colton didn’t just have one sit down conversation; he let his journey be known one startling revelation at a time.
How could this little boy know these things? How could he know about relatives who had died long before he was born? How could someone so young offer such amazing insights into Heaven, Christ, and the glories that await Christians? How could he know things he’d never been taught and couldn’t know?
2. I have never read such a moving story. I’ve always known God is real and that Jesus is, also.
