The first book I received was titled "Heaven is for Real" by Todd Burpo. Needless to say, as a pastor I was skeptical! I thought, Oh no, not another I've been to heaven book! Beginning with 90 minutes in Heaven, the market has been flooded by books of peoples accounts of their journey to Heaven, Hell, and the Laundromat! I assumed this book would be little different and I thought I'd wind up relegating this book to the "not worth my time" pile. I was wrong.
"Heaven is for Real" is a a heartwarming, simple, and surprisingly biblical glimpse into a little four year old boy's journey into Heaven. Colton Burpo was four year's old when he found himself at death's door. His family didn't realize he had made his amazing journey until small but shocking revelations that amazed and bewildered his parents began to leak out. Colton didn't just have one sit down conversation, he let his journey be known one startling revelation at a time.
How could this little boy know these things? How could he know about relatives who had died long before he was born? How could someone so young offer such amazing insights into Heaven, Christ, and the glories that await Christians? How could he know things he'd never been taught and couldn't know?
As I mentioned before, I'm a skeptic at heart. A book like this one wouldn't likely catch my attention and certainly wouldn't win any praise from me. So many books like these are fanciful, unbiblical, and simply outright inconsistent with what I know to be true from the Bible.Read more ›
Todd Burpo, co-author, husband and father, is a small-town minister and serves as the narrator. Todd went through a trying season of personal injury and illness, taking on large medical debts, which culminated in a life-or-death struggle for Todd's son, Colton. Colton had a bout of what seemed to be, and was misdiagnosed as, the stomach flu, but in actuality Colton's appendix had ruptured and the condition went untreated for five days. Railing against God for this Job-like testing, as Colton was wheeled into the operating room screaming, Todd thought he'd seen his son for the last time.
Against all odds, and through multiple surgeries, Colton miraculously recovered. The caliber of the miracle would not begin to be revealed till months later when Colton revealed to his family that he had been to Heaven. Over the course of time Colton would open up and share details of his experience; offering preternatural knowledge of things about which, his family says, Colton had no prior knowledge.Read more ›
I was compelled to read "Heaven is for Real" by its popularity. The book is currently #7 on Amazon and the movie has grossed $65 million in just a few weeks. Millions of people have formed their beliefs about God and heaven from what Todd Burpo claims his 3-year-old son experienced in heaven and later relayed to him.
The story goes as follows: Young Colton Burpo underwent an emergency appendectomy and made a subsequent miraculous recovery. Several months later, Colton revealed to his parents that while in surgery he had an out-of-body experience, spoke with angels, and sat in Jesus' lap. For the next couple years, whenever the Burpo parents got a hankerin', they'd pump Colton for more information. There was a pattern to these sessions. Colton would be preoccupied (often playing with swords or action figures) when his dad asked something like, "Hey Colton, did you see God's throne in heaven?" Whether the question was, "Did you see animals?" or "Did you see Mary?" or "Did you see Satan?" or something else, Colton's reply never failed to gratify. His father was invariably stunned and amazed. Colton would then run off and play while Mr.Read more ›
