This bad review is not because of how bad the story is.

Heaven Is For Real DVD-Based Conversation Kit by Todd Burpo is the dvd version of the book.

At times I felt like the DVD was more about the dad than what Colton experienced.

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 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.

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.)

I greatly enjoyed reading Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo several months ago. Periodically something would happen in my life that would make me ponder some of the experience which four year old Colton described about his three minute experience in heaven. The tone of the book was never arrogant or braggadocios but extremely humble and understanding of people who might question the validity of the stories that were recounted. This Conversation Kit which includes a DVD and a Conversation Guide continued to demonstrate the authenticity of this family.

Both Todd and Sonja, Colton's mother and father, shared their reactions and thoughts as Colton revealed more and more about his experience. Todd described his anger with God, his fear and confusions as well as a very unpastor-like prayer while Colton was in surgery which was amazingly validated by Colton. Sonja emotionally gave an account of hearing Colton tell her about the baby girl that was waiting for her in heaven.

Reading the book allowed me to form certain opinions about this family. Watching the video confirmed their sincerity and faith to each other and to Jesus. Fabulous experience!

I received a copy of this book free of charge from the publisher for the purpose of review.
