Heaven is for Real

Cover: 'Heaven is for Real'

Staff Review: "Heaven is for Real" by Todd Burpo, Lynn Vincent


Are you looking for a simple but heart-felt and emotional story? Then look no further! Todd Burpo, a small-town pastor, tells the story of how he and his family fell on some hard times due to injuries and illness. He suffered a broken leg and hyperplasia, which set him back on his job duties. The main part of the book is accounts of his not yet four year old son, Colton's illness, a ruptured appendix, and how he went about telling his Dad about his encounter with Jesus and seeing Heaven. Colton's encounters throw Todd for a loop because how can a not yet four-year-old know all the intricate details? Want to read how Todd handles this news? Pick up a copy and see what you think!
