Heaven Is For Real: An Introduction

"Some stories want to be told. They simply have a life of their own. The book you hold in your hand is just such a story. But it won't stay long with you; it will bubble over into your conversations in search of someone who has not yet heard. I know it will happen to you because that is what happened to me."
—Phil McCallum, Senior Pastor, Evergreen Community Church, Bothell, Washington

"The Bible describes heaven as the dwelling place of God. It is a real place that all those who submit their lives to God will have as an eternal dwelling. In this book Todd Burpo relays the account of his son's experience when he was in surgery for a burst appendix. It is honest and touching and encouraging to all of us who have an eternal hope."
—Robert Morris Pastor, Gateway Church, Southlake, Texas

"Heaven Is for Real is a wonderful book. It reaffirms how important faith is in our lives—for children as well as adults."
—Timothy P. O'Holleran, MD

"Colton's story could have been in the New Testament—but God has chosen to speak to us in this twenty-first century through the unblemished eyes of a child, revealing some of the mysteries of heaven. The writing is compelling and the truth astonishing, creating a hunger for more."
—Jo Anne Lyon, General Superintendent, The Wesleyan Church

"God is so creative and credible! The discoveries of this book will amplify that in new ways. I've known Colton since birth. As a toddler, he already had a keen spiritual interest and intensity. At about age 3, he sat on my knee, looked me in the eyes and asked if I wanted to go to heaven when I died. Then told me "You need to have Jesus in your heart." I commend this book as a fresh perspective on the reality of God, who often seems hidden yet interrupts on His schedule."
—Phil Harris, District Superintendent, Colorado-Nebraska District of the Wesleyan Church
