Colton Burpo, the four-year-old son of a small-town Nebraska pastor, slipped from consciousness during emergency surgery and into Heaven. Upon recovery, his stories were just too remarkable to deny. From looking down on his operation and seeing his dad praying in the waiting room, to meeting family members who had already passed away (that he knew nothing about) the evidence was clear: this amazing trip really had happened!
Told by his father - but often in Colton's own words - the disarmingly simple message is this: Heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children and be ready, because there is a last battle coming.

- Short, Simple, & to the Point by C-wag on 9/17/2013
I've never been one to buy a book without a slew of recommendations from men I trust in my church, so I was actually a little shocked when my best friend and room mate suggested this one to me. It looked to be a little too "silly" or childish for my general tastes. I was delightfully surprised, and finished the book that evening.
The story is for the most part light, giving hope to those who may feel Heaven is simply a lofty concept too difficult for the masses to truly understand. Well worth the read.
- amazing by tiffany on 6/25/2013
bought this book on a whim thinking "why not i need something to read on the plane" read this book in less than a day and cried hysterically on the plane. this book took me from reading rarely to wanting to read more books like it! i loved it!
- Wonderful book!! by Sue on 1/18/2013
After I read this book, I bought 4 other copies to share. It is a delightful story about Heaven in the eyes of a little boy, who actually visited there. Good story to share with unbelievers, non-threatening with good references to the bible truths. Love it!
- I have been there by Gen on 12/4/2012
I don't remember the colors quite as well as he does, but the rest I agree with entirely. Granted I was only two when I went and that was over 20 years ago, but it is a vivid experience that hardly any person could forget. Read the book and be convinced!
- Pick up the book, cannot put it down! Awesome little soul. by Hope on 11/11/2012
I have suggested many to read this, thru loosing a loved one to even a neighbor who broke her toe and cannot drive. She again repeated what I said, You cannot put it down until you are done reading it. Now a 4 y.o. lost his Daddy, and my friend, his Grandma, is buying the childrens version of it.
- Excellent Book!!! by Cheryl on 7/1/2012
Yes, everyone should read this book, especially if you are not sure exactly what heaven is. Once I started reading Heaven Is For Real, I did not want to put the book down. It has confirmed what I thought heaven would be like, plus much more.
- LOVE LOVE LOVE!! by Tiffany on 6/30/2012
This is my favorite book! I couldn't put it down and I ended up reading it in 2 days which is good for me (someone who doesn't read often because reading puts me to sleep) I highly recommend this book. After reading this book is when I grew a stronger bond with God.
- Read it with your kids! by Amy on 2/14/2012
I read this with my 10 year old son and opened up rich conversation and important questions. He was as excited as I was to read it every night. Another book I will have to buy a lot of copies of!
- Everyone should read Heaven is for Real by AJay on 1/25/2012
This book is life-changing!! You will look at life and the after-life in completely different way. An absolute MUST read!
- best book out by Nancy on 12/21/2011
I was told about the book by my youngest daughter and after not really reading any books other than my Bible and devotional books for several years, I wanted to try reading again. It just so happened we were starting a small group Bible Study titled "What Can We Know About Heaven". I had about 5 different books on the the subject and was trying to get them read before the study, but having a hard time keeping focused. Once I started to read this book, for the study I was going to facilitate, I could not put it down and finished over half of the book in the first sitting. It is by far the most honest, enlightening book I have ever read and our whole group read it before the end of the study. Ironically during our study we lost one of our members suddenly and he loved the time we spent as a group and loved the study. After having read this book I am assured he is looking down on us and having a ball in Heaven. I bought a copy for each of my children to read and share with their familes. I am so excited about this book I randomly recommend it to anyone I meet or talk to.
