By Todd Burpo

Heaven Is for Real is the true story of Colton Burpo, the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who, during emergency surgery, slips from consciousness and enters heaven. After surviving the surgery, he describes being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. Colton also shares that he met his sister who miscarried, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. Told by his father Todd, but often in Colton’s own words, the disarmingly simple message is that heaven is a real place, and Jesus really loves children. Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.

This special movie tie-in edition of the book includes 8 pages of color photographs from the Burpo family and behind-the-scenes photos from the film production.
