Super Sunday Reviews--Heaven if for Real

Heaven IS for Real!

 My teenager had started attending a youth group with one of her friends. She got in on the last 2 weeks of them reading Heaven is for Real as a group.

Both weeks she came home telling me about what she had read and telling me that I really needed to read the book. I was thrilled when they gave her a copy of the book to bring home.

I started reading, and didn’t stop until I was done. Yes folks, Heaven is for Real is THAT good. I couldn’t stop turning the pages to see what 4 year Colton was going to tell us next about heaven.

See, Colton got very sick. He went for emergency surgery. During the surgery he went to heaven. When he came back he told his family the different things and the people that he seen there.

At first they thought he was just naming things that he had been taught, after all, his father is a pastor. But, as he talks of meeting his sister, who was miscarried, and his grandfather, who had died 30 years before he was born, they began to believe.

So much of what I read that Colton saw in heaven, I too have been taught throughout my Christian life. He gives so many details, it has to be real.

If you have not read Heaven is for Real, please do. I just went into my daughter’s room to ask her if I can have the book to read again. This time I’m going to read it out loud to my husband.


  1. I am fighting breast cancer and endometriotis and I have no kids...this book is on my list, I'll definitely read it!

  2. I agree with your review. I took my daughter to see the movie and she was very disappointed saying the book was so much better.

    I have had it on my list of 'to do' reading and it was from her bad review for the movie and exceptional review of the book that increased my curiosity.

    Having grown up in the church I have always believed in heaven, after loosing my mother this past summer added to the my curiosity to hear more of actual accounts to better understand what she must be experiencing vs. what my imagination is and with my daughter's enthusiasm for the book cliched it.

    I would recommend this for anyone to read, it is a quick and easy read and well worth the time.

  3. Great book, especially for those that question heaven. I really liked the writing style and the explanation around each memory. Everyone should read this book.
