Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo

This inspiring book details the author’s experiences with his son Colton after his near-fatal episode of appendicitis at the age of three.

About a year later, at four years of age, Colton mentioned ‘seeing’ his mother and father as they paced, prayed, cried, and worried anxiously about him while he was in the operating room. And that was just the beginning of the unusual experiences he described to his parents!

It’s difficult to envision any way that a four-year old would have the capacity to invent the events and experiences that little Colton recounted to his parents, which leaves one with the obvious conclusion … Heaven must really be for real!

Definitely one worth reading.

P.S. One of my favorite things about this book is the inclusion of the painting of Jesus done by Akiane Kramarik when she was just eight years old. Takes my breath away!

One Response to “Heaven Is For Real by Todd Burpo”

  1. Delmer Miesse Says:

    Appendicitis has been labeled as a very difficult to diagnose internal disorder. The symptoms of appendicitis are often vague and unspecific, thus rendering the process of diagnosis very difficult. Appendicitis rarely generates outwardly visible clinical manifestations and doctors often require additional tests in the process of diagnosing the disorder. In order to confirm the presumptive diagnoses of appendicitis, doctors rely on blood analysis, computerized tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and ultrasound tests. However, even modern medical procedures have a certain degree of imprecision and doctors are faced with a real challenge when it comes to diagnosing unspecific cases of appendicitis.
