Heaven is for Real

I finished Heaven is for Real a few months ago and it was GREAT! If you haven't read it, please go do so ASAP!
"When Colton Burpo made it through and emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren't expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed--a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy's trip to heaven and back.
Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery--and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he me there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with the descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.
With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He scribes Jesus, the angels, how "really, really big" God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton's uniquely simple workds, Heaven is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton syays, "Nobody is old and no body wears glasses."
Heven is for Real will forever change the way you thnk of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child."

This book is nothing short of amazing and encourage everyone to read it. It is not time consuming and you'll be able to read it very quickly. The way this little boy describes heaven is like no other and it makes you feel so differently about heaven. I wish I had better words to describe this book but it's really just one you have to pick up and read!


Happy Hump Day!
