Heaven Is For Real

I recently read Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo. I will admit, I came into reading this book with a large amount of skepticism, expecting to find an unbelievable story. However, I finished reading this book, not only believing it, but being touched by it.

The story of Colton Burpo is the tale of a young boy nearly dying from a ruptured appendix, but miraculously being healed, and coming back with an astonishing story of having been to Heaven while on the operating table. It sounds fantastical, but he came back with pieces of information that were impossible for him to know.

This book didn't dwell on "what Heaven is like" so much as it told the story of this young boy and his family through the many trials they experienced throughout this illness and many other things. I did expect a bit more detail about Colton's experience, but the book and story itself was touching, heartwarming, and very interesting. I would definitely recommend this book - it is a wonderful story of a family displaying great faith through much adversity.

I received a copy of this book from BookSneeze in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
