I am not much of a reader, but I could not put this book down. Best book I have read in a very long time. Everyone in this world should be made to read this book. Can not wait for the movie to come out. To bad there is not a 10 star rating or more!

HEAVEN IS FOR REAL -- Special Movie Edition A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back By Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent In this book, you will find the original book of Heaven is for Real along with some added chapters by Todd Burpo. There is a chapter about how the book had affected their lives and how the movie came about. There are chapters with interviews with actors, producer, screenwriter and others connected with the movie. Information and background about the movie is given. The most important thing, I think, about the book is the original book is included. This book is about Colton Burpo (a four-year-old) and the experience of going to heaven while being operated on for a ruptured appendix. This story sound like it came from the twilight zone, but backed by Biblical facts. Unbelievable, as it may seem, his experience held many truths. Todd Burpo, his father, tells his story from his son’s perspective, a four year old. The information Colton gave at to what he seen in heaven is amazing. The facts he finds out about his family in heaven, things he did not know or every heard about, is a miracle. The story is heartwarming and gives us knowledge of heaven that we may not have known. If you know the Bible you will see the connections and know the truth, you will know that there is no way a four year old could make up a story with such detail. I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I had seen the previews and watched the interviews with Colton then I saw the book while browsing through my nook and I just had to read it. I'm glad I did. One minute I was crying and the next I was giggling! This book will stir emotions and make you realize miracles do happen and God is real.

I am a psychic and a medium, so I have had many conversations with people both on this side and the "other side." This book, telling the experiences of a 4 year old child, has validated everything I was told. Excellent book, can't wait for the movie. Even if you DON'T believe, this will make you think.

This was an excellent book. I have already read this book and listen to the audio book. Now I will go see the movie in theater. You must get the book right away to inspire your life to become great.

I had heard from various people that this book was worth my time. After reading it I can agree! The idea I have had of my faith, Heaven, and God  was strengthened by reading this book. The contrast of hearing about the love Colten had from his father in heaven and his father on earth was  interesting. I would have given the book five stars if it had included just a little bit more of Colten's words and less of his father's. Overall a good read!

This inspirational, and intriging story inspires you to grow in your faith. It was a swift read but the story never became uninteresting. Can't wait to see the movie. The book will amaze you.

This book is a very easy read. It also covers the "story" more thoroughly than the movie. There is a lot of good insight in the book without it being preachy. I applaud Todd Burpo for being brave enough to put his son's story out there. This book is a must-read if you've every lost a loved one. If you are not sure "what" you believe, this book leaves it up to you to draw your own conclusion.

Once you get a hold of this book you won't be able to put it down. It's a very life-touching book. It didn't only just bring me to tears but it also changed me. An incredible must read book.

Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo What an amazing story! This little kid looking into Heaven, sitting on Jesus’ lap. If there was ever any doubt about Heaven it would be dissolved by this book. I saw the movie which was a brilliant representation of the story. Here is a synopsis of the book:  “Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said.“Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where theangels sang to me.” When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his familywas overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though,was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as itwas extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back. Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during thesurgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents weredoing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked ofvisiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom hehad never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven thatmatched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read. With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels,how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father,but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpseof the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobodywears glasses.” Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offeringthe chance to see, and believe, like a child. Like I said it is an amazing story that will change your life and inspire you beyond belief. I highly suggest reading it.  ~/~ The Upside-Down Reader

For anyone that thinks this little boy was dreaming, just to let you know, you do not dream while your under anesthicia (i know i spelled it wrong) what happened to believing in miracles. Are we that caught up in our scientific and computer age world that christians are called wack jobs and miracles are just things that can be explained without it being a true miracle. Open your eyes world. Stop killing off god and his son. Saying there not real. Miracles gives us hope. Without hope, theres just no life

Worth the read. I was a bit disappointed that the book was more about the parents and their ministry rather than Colton's experience. I would have loved to have heard more of Colton's own words regarding his experience. Keep in mind that this was written from a Christian point of view. Nowhere in the book does it address what happens to good people of other faiths after they die or whether Colton saw any non-Christians in the heaven he visited. Definitely a one-sided point of view. Well edited.

As long as you go in knowing that it is total fantasy fiction, it is a heart warming story. It is not an example of fictional realism as there is not one shred of real evidence that god, satan, heaven or hell exist. So if you take it as a good "make believe" story told from a child's perspective then it is a nice read, otherwise you are deluding yourself.

I won't be spending any money on the unlikely notion that god created the heavens and the earth and the next thing he did was install himself in a theistic monarchy complete with absolute rule, taxation and torture.

We do not know what all is retained in memory before five years we do know from brain surgery that a person can have a total all senses recall of an incident some have total recall of their dreams and hallutionations but they are not real the parents made a dollar or two and as thechild gets older will no doubt if he keeps active in their church more and more recall

I am a Christian and well versed in the Bible. If you are a Christian evangelical, this is the book for you. If you are looking for a more authentic read however, you will be disappointed. This author uses every Bible passage possible to link what is supposed to be his son's experience to the "truth" about Jesus Christ and God. Those in this "heaven" come complete with halos, wings, robes with the correct color sashes, thrones, etc. I don't intend to demean what may have been a deeply moving experience for his son, but the lengths the author goes to in this story are simply too contrived. Heaven is for real....but not this one.

It was awesome to read about coltons experience.

What I found compelling was that this story was relayed by a young child. The things that he saw and knew, which were not things a young person , his age, would have any clue about was. I found his story to be very uplifting and it gave me new hope and faith in dealing with a recent loss in my own life. For me, reading it could not have come at a better time in my life. I would highly recommend it to everyone to read. I think it offers hope to all who will read it and follow through to accept Christ, if they had not already done so.
