Heaven is for Real

From the back cover:

A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

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, there is a coming last battle.


So I read it a few months ago and loved it…but I haven’t been able to read it since. XD The reason is because it cost a TON to buy (like $7 and up), and I don’t like checking out books from the library because I don’t want the books to get overdue.

I might be able to get it the day after Thanksgiving, though! 😀 At Family Christian Bookstore, they’re having a Day-After-Thanksgiving sale where they’ll put Heaven is for Real on sale for $5!!! :mrgreen: I hope I’ll be able to get it…

  1. I am glad you liked it. I have been wanting to read it. Maybe not wanting – I was intrigued by it, and then there were a whole bunch of reviews that his parent coerced him ect. I know I should make my own assumption but it left a bad taste in my mouth. I should check it out! Thank you
