When 3 year old Colton Burpo started becoming violently ill, his family had no idea the path this would take them down. A misdiagnosis led to complications from a burst appendix. When it looked like there was nothing more that could be done for Colton, a church family offered up fervent prayers on his behalf. It was no coincidence that a miracle happened, and Colton's body was restored to full health. Little did Colton's parents know that this was actually only the start of an incredible story of what happened to Colton during this difficult time. In the coming months, he would begin to recount a story that would seem almost unbelievable, his trip to heaven and back. As he gave details about family members that passed away before he was even born, his parents knew this incredible story was true.
I really like true stories, and I really liked this book. I know a lot of speculation can occur around incidences like this, but as you read, it's just amazing the things this little 3 year old says about his experience. I think it's very cool that his experience is documented in this book! This is an easy read and one that you won't want to put down! You'll definitely be assured that HEAVEN IS FOR REAL!
