The Story of 'Heaven Is For Real'
As Colton told his story, the Burpo family didn't know what to believe. He talked about a journey - though he's never left the hospital. He talked about meeting his miscarried sister and shared impossible-to-know details about the great grandfather who'd died 30 years before Colton was born. Astonished and perplexed, his parents realised that these couldn't just be tales from a sick child's vivid imagination. The only explanation: their son had been to Heaven!
Narrated by Todd, but often told in Colton's own childlike words, the disarmingly simple message of this book is that heaven is a real place, that Jesus really does care for children, and that we should all be ready for a final battle that is coming soon.
