I just got through reading the book "Heaven is Real" by Todd Burpo. This is a true account of a 4 year old boy's trip to Heaven while he was very sick in the hospital. All I can say is this. If you are a skeptic when it comes to God, Jesus, and Heaven...read this book.
I have a lot of Heaven skeptics in my life..."Doubting Thomas" people who want proof before they believe. They also claim to be very open minded. If that is the case I challenge them to read "Heaven is Real." I'm a believer, and it totally renewed everything I already believe.
God has always chosen to reveal Himself in mysterious ways, and at times through people we would never expect. In this book, God chooses to reveal Himself through the eyes and ears of a four year old little boy...an innocent child who has not been scarred by life or filled with preconceived notions about God and Heaven.
I won't spoil it for you by telling you any of the details. I want you to sit there with your mouth hanging open and tears in your eyes the same way I was when I read the book. And if you aren't a reader, the movie will be released around Easter time. (Click here to watch the trailer). So go see the movie is you don't read the book. Just be ready to have your current unbelief challenged in an astronomical way.
