Runaway bestselling book – Heaven is for Real….detailing the incredible near death experience of 4 year old Colton Burpo has been made into a movie
The incredible and inspiring story features the NDE of a small child in a small town who survives a harrowing brush with death, and comes back to tell his parents…and then the world, about what he saw on “other side”.
A controversial and yet incredibly compelling book…….Heaven is for Real is guaranteed to continue to stimulate conversation about both the reality of near death experiences and the spiritual and life changing messages that those who have them bring back. (especially when those who have these sorts of spiritually tranformative experiences are too young or too innocent to have an agenda or ulterior motive in describing their story – although the skeptics and “debunkers” are all too eager to attack the parents, and this compelling case has certainly attested to 🙂

The faith of the small town in Nebraska is shaken when the son of Todd Burpo, a pastor cum firefighter, starts to see religious images and dead people after miraculously surviving an emergency surgery.
Colton, a 4-year-old child, claims to have met his sister who died during a miscarriage and his great-grandfather who died 30 years before he was born. Just when Colton begins to share his near-death experience with others, this starts to raise the eyebrows of the townspeople.
Although religious, Todd finds it hard to believe in his son’s account of his experience in heaven, until Colton innocently tells them details of things he can’t possibly know. Todd then finds himself colliding against a wall of mystery and doubt, until he breaks through to rediscover hope, wonder and the strength of purpose.
This is the story of director Randall Wallace’s new film “Heaven is for Real,” based on the New York Times best-selling nonfiction book “Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy’s Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back,” written by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent.
