Heaven is for Real

Rating:  5/5

 "I heard a loud voice from the throne.  The voice said, "Now God's home is with men.  He will live with them, and they will be his people.  God himself will be with them and will be their God.  He will wipe away every tear from their eyes.  There will be no more death, sadness, crying, or pain.  All the old ways are gone."
-Revelation 21:3-4

 Heaven is for Real  by Todd Burpo is an inspiring story about a boy, Colton, who spent some time with God in heaven.  Based on a true story, Heaven is for Real touches my heart.  I am currently reading the chapter book, which helped my family get through a rough time in our lives.  I'm excited to see a picture book come from this story because it is filled with scripture and descriptions from the time Colton was in heaven.  

I would recommend this for any Christian home wanting to give their children a true insight about what heaven will be like.  It's hard, as a child, to picture something so peaceful and perfect; however, there is a place, and through God, everything is possible.  There are always going to be people out there thinking this book is made-up, but to me, it honestly doesn't matter.  Each page and story is backed up by scripture from God's word, and his word is the truth. 

This is my, personal, review!  eBook was provided by Booksneeze
