Heaven is For Real

Heaven is for Real
A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back
By Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent

What an amazing story.  So riveting and engaging I found myself reading the entire book in a 24 hour time span, mostly in the evening after my baby was in bed for the night.  The chapters are short, but once into the book (and it doesn't take long), the chapters pass by without notice as the story just flows.

I found myself amazed at the story of this little boy and his family, heartbroken at their struggles and intrigued by the proclamations and statements of this small child after an illness that nearly took his life.  Having read other books about visits to and from Heaven by others, I anticipated it would be similar, yet this book is entirely different.  Each claim little Clayton made his father (the author) could back up with scripture references upon investigation.

While some may claim this is another hoax or story, I truly believe this encounter took place and is an encouragement and challenge to all Christians.  What a glimpse of Heaven I have been provided and through the innocent eyes of a child... the little ones Christ calls us to be like in our faith.  A definite recommendation for all readers - you will find yourself amazed and challenged, your eyes opened to possibilities and your hope and desire for our Heavenly home renewed.
