This #1 New York Times bestseller is the true story of Colton Burpo, the four-year-old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who, during emergency surgery, slipped from consciousness and enters heaven. He survived and began talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe, but soon the evidence was clear.
Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather, who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He described the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how 'reaaally big' God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit 'shoots down power' from heaven to help us.
Told by the father but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is that heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and a last battle is coming.
