If you need a book that's quick to read, inspiring and gives you goosebumps, this is it! Todd Burpo's Heaven is for Real is a story about his son Colton, who tells of his time in Heaven during a surgery he experienced when four years old. What's amazing about this book are the things Colton begins telling his family months after the surgery that they knew he had no way of knowing....things about their family, about family members he'd never met, biblical things about Heaven and Jesus, and so much more.
When I was reading this book, I'd keep looking at the clock bargaining with myself, "Ok, one more chapter and then I'll go to sleep!" But I'd keep reading on and on. Once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down.
This book definitely restores faith for those who can be questioning, or can turn on a light for those who are searching.
