I had seen this book all over the place. It had been in the news and all over the media. When I saw that it was available for review as one of the choices for Thomas Nelson Book Publishers blogging for books program Booksneeze I knew that it would be the next title that I was going to review. I got a complimentary copy of Heaven is for real by Todd Burpo from BookSneeze.I am very glad that booksneeze has given me an opportunity to write of this New York time’s No.1 best seller book. 


I began reading Heaven is for Real, I could not put it down until I finished it. I loved reading this book. I have read both the books. This book is about a little boy Colton who had a burst appendix and on the verge of death, he visited Heaven. He was supposedly there for 3 minutes, but time as we all know in Heaven is very different from that on earth. Upon waking up from his operation and for years later, Colton frequently surprised his parents with statements concerning Heaven. Colton’s story begs to be told and is written by Colton’s father.


I enjoyed the book very much, it was a sweet story of a kid who got to witness a glimpse of what heaven is really like, and I think even that’s extraordinary in itself. I have first completed the children version. This is definitely a good read, for someone who may have lost faith. A must read book.
