"Heaven is for Real" ~ Book Review
For anyone who has ever wondered about Heaven... if it really exists, who you might expect to see there, and what its like, this book will be a fascinating read. "Heaven is for Real" is a true story about a four year old boy, Colton Burpo, who had a ruptured appendix and several evergency surgeries, during which he was acutely ill and near death. The doctors were not certain he would live.
After his recovery and return home to his family, he began making some startling statements to his parents about things he saw, heard, and did while he was in "heaven". This story is told through the voice of his father, Todd Burpo, a Christian pastor, who tries to analyze his son's revelations and make sense of it all.
I found this book to be an easy, compelling read that gave "Heaven" a new face in my mind, one that needs to shared with a hurting world. I recommend this book as a personal must read for anyone even remotely curious about "Heaven", and a book which is worthy of passing on!
