Synopsis

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.

    Heaven Is for Real

    This is a very ineresting read. My husband died recently and my sister-in-law suggested that I read this book. I have always believed that there is something after death but was never sure what. This book has offered a little boy's impressions of Heaven. I wonder if an adult would experience the same impressions of Heavven or if Heaven would be presented in a totally different way. An adult has pre-conceived opions and probably different ideas of what Heaven means to them. This book opens the door to other questions about life after death. I really enjoyed this book.

    The book is heartwarming and faith strengthening. I had my 13 year old daughter read it and she said that if everyone read this book there would be no no doubt in anyone's mind that heaven really IS for real!@

    This is a powerful story of this child's experience and the impact that it had and still is having. I found it not only interesting but a great asset in discussions of faith. I serve as a volunteer Parish Nurse at a Long Term Care facility and stories such of this are of great value to me- and subsequently to others I have the honor and pleasure of sharing with.

    Faked

    This kid admitted, a few months ago now, that he made the whole thing up. This book should not be listed as non-fiction but fiction. It boarders on religious propaganda and before you get all tied up in a not by this heathen and his 'point of view', what if this was a book that had a Jewish or Muslim or Hindu or (add in any religion you wish) message instead of Christianity? How would your view of such a book be once the story teller admitted they made the whole thing up? Would you want it to be sold in what is suppose to be a secular bookstore? To be fair you either pull the book, or add similar books of all religions and give everybody a chance to propagate their beliefs equally. At the very least list it as Fiction.
