Book Review: Heaven is for real

Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and BackHeaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by Todd Burpo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Really hard to digest this book. I don’t think I have digested it and might never actually get it. Until i get to see for myself I guess.

The amount of detail that he reveals after his near death experience is amazing. None of it was too wild to be un-biblical, but all pretty crazy.

He also found out things about his mum and dad that he could not have known.

The real challenge of this book is to be able to decide for yourself what this little boy’s recounting of his trip to heaven and back means for you.

That heaven is real and wonderful and a young boy felt totally at home there is great news. But we already knew that; if you know your New Testament. That he got to come back and nonchalantly detail what he saw is huge.

For parents grieving over their very sick children, this book is also amazing. God is listening and grieving with you. He is right there feeling your pain and hates it like you do.

Again, this is not new for those who know their Bible. It is good to hear it again and see it in operation for real. Must be a great comfort.

As I say, still digesting it .
