I received the ebook version of Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo from booksneeze.com. I have to admit, I was not a fan of the ebook... I would much rather have the actual paper copy of any book! That being said, this was still a very charming book. Colton was 4 years old when he "died" and went to heaven during an operation. This is his dad's recollection of the events leading up to and afterwards. It's interesting how long it takes the parents to really get the whole story from Colton... Colton's age at the time of the event may attribute to the slow progression. That being said though, the book definitely makes you think about what heaven is like. Todd Burpo did do a great job putting scriptural references to Colton's memories of heaven. I liked reading about Colton's "preschooler moments". I wasn't really that big of a fan of all the lead up to the incident of Colton's experience... I felt like it was almost a biography of Colton's dad's bad luck prior to all this.

However, I still enjoyed hearing Colton's recollection of his experience in heaven and meeting Jesus. There is a picture of the image of Jesus that Colton recalls in the back of the book. I think this is definitely a book that people who have never thought about eternity should read.

My husband and I have both read this book now and we are amazed and delighted with the book.

This is the story of a little boy who was 3 when he had his actual "near death experience." He was four by the time he began to make statements to his parents about his experience.

The book is really a treasure - a little boy, who knew nothing of the Bible - in fact couldn't yet read, tells his parents about how heaven looks, about seeing God on His throne, meeting Jesus, seeing many people in heaven. In particular, he meets his great grandfather "Pop", who died 25 years before Colton was born. He also meets his sister - and describes her. Colton's mother had a miscarriage before Colton was born and certainly never discussed this with him. In fact, his parents didn't know if the child they lost was a boy or a girl. Yet, Colton says he met her in heaven.

We highly recommend this book and it would make an excellent birthday or Christmas gift. We are buying several to give to family members.

I lead a book discussion and the book we choose for Dec, partly becuase of its size and it hope and promise was the "Heaven is for Real" book. I listened to the CD but did not have the DVD for the series. The Conversation guide was very helpful for leading the book discussion, the questions and scripture listing were excellent. A good jumping off place, for anyone over 10.

Format: Paperback
With this kit came a 117 page discussion guide and a 5 session DVD.
Each session within the study guide contains multiple parts: scripture, group discussion questions, and a prayer. I found each scripture passage incredibly relevant to the topic, the questions were deep and though provoking, and the prayers were heartfelt and genuine.

The DVD sessions were a bit lacking, however. They were set up in an interview-style format with a "reporter" and it felt like a bland, drawn out story with no real focus or direction. Todd Burpo speaks throughout most of the DVD and doesn't concentrate the topics to heaven as much as I would have liked. I found the reporter to be disingenuous in general and especially when asking questions of Colton Burpo and what he saw and experienced in heaven. Other minor things such as the all white background and the way the family sat during the interview were distracting and could have been better directed.

Overall, I think the conversation guide has a lot of value, especially for a small group format. The DVD, however, can be thrown out.

(I received this kit for free to review. All opinions are my own.)

Format: Paperback
I'll let the reader know at the start regarding near Death Experiences (NDE) or Post Death Experiences (PDE): I am a disbeliever. Nonetheless, "Heaven is for Real" tracks the life of a family including Colton, a 4-year old boy, and his father Todd (a minister). Colton gets ill and needs emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix. Dad is already overwhelmed due to many troubles. Colton has surgery conjoined with a trouble-filled recovery. Then the young boy starts to mention parts of a story about his journey to heaven that he experienced during surgery. Specific details are given that the boy should not have been able to normally observe, which seems to confirm his story.

"Heaven is for Real" sold out in its first printing and climbed to #1 on the New York Times Bestseller list. For many weeks it has remained #1 on the non-fiction list. And now the best-selling book about Colton's visit to heaven is on DVD with a conversation package that is made for classes and small groups. You will see Colton's story and how it changed his live and his family's. Each DVD segment has Todd, Sonja, and Colton in an interview based format.

The DVD and kit provide:

* Five video sessions with the family and Colton answering common questions about heaven and his visit.
* A touching session on how to recover from loss and trouble
* A group leader guide

So the pertinent question: Did the little boy visit heaven? See the video with scripture in hand and let the truth decide the question.
Revelation 21:9-27 Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls filled with the seven last plagues came to me and talked with me, saying, "Come, I will show you the bride, the Lamb's wife.
