Heaven Is for Real
A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and BackBook - 2014
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 "reaaally 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 because a last battle is coming.
This special movie edition that will be available in time for the 4/16/14 premiere of the movie will include bonus material written by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent such as a new introduction on how the movie came about and insights into the movie making experience. In addition, the eight pages of photos will expand to sixteen pages and include recent photos from the life of the family and the filming.
