Description
This story has incredible intrigue and emotional power.

--Randall Wallace, Director"Heaven Is for Real, We Were Soldiers, and Secretariat"

Do you remember the hospital, Colton? Sonja said. Yes, mommy, I remember, he said. That's where the angels sang to me.

When four-year-old Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren't expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the following months a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy's trip to heaven and back.

This true story, retold by his father but using Colton's uniquely simple words, offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.

"Heaven is for Real"will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe like a child.
