About "Heaven is For Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back (Large Print)"
A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven. Heaven Is for Realis the true story of Colton Burpo, the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who, during emergency surgery, slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in thewaiting room. 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. Told by his father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is: heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.
