Review: Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Michele Howe

Todd Burpo and his wife, Sonja, never expected to hear their young son, Colton, matter of factly tell them that he remembered his hospital experience because it was where the angels sang to him. But that's exactly how he described his distinct memory of being treated for an emergency appendectomy. Before that lifealtering conversation in a car en route to visit family, the Burpos had already ... Read full review

What if you died, went to heaven, and came back? How would you feel? How would you react? Although he is not the one who went on this amazing journey to heaven and back, his son is. I chose
this book because I am a christian and I wanted to learn more about what happened to this boy and what his journey was like. I expected to learn a little bit about what heaven was like. The book Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo is about a four-year-old boy who while in surgery at the emergency room, experienced heaven and came back to life to tell magnificent stories about heaven and about Earth. The message of this book is that there is a heaven and that is the final truth.
Overall, this is a very good book for anybody to pick up and read. I believe it can give believers the some reassurance that heaven does exist, and leave non-believers wondering how it could ever be possible if God didn’t exist. This book certainly gave me some worldly proof that I needed in my christian life to stay strong in my faith so that one day I may go to heaven myself.

Awesome book
I couldn't put it down. Love this book. Those who question this book have no faith and are closed minded!

I do believe that this little boy's experience was real, however, I don't believe it was unbiased as his father keeps insisting throughout the book. The father, who authored the book is a pastor; and, unless he never took his son to church, his son's account is so full of Christian symbolism that he goes into ridiculous detail such as what color Jesus wears in heaven. The most disturbing part of the book is the part when he takes his son to a funeral of a man who wasn't part of their church and his son begins yelling about how this man is not saved because he didn't have Jesus in his heart. In my opinion, Jesus loves everyone, whether or not they love him. This book tries to assert that God only loves Christians.

A believer who believes
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!! I had questions answered and my curiosity about what Heaven looks like was made a little clearer. This is so heart warming. I wish I could meet the Pastor and family :-)
