Headline for Book Review: Gone to Heaven and Back to tell the world.

This book was given to me by BookSneeze for my honest review.

I remember when I heard the news story about Colton who is now 12 years old in 2011.

When Colton was four he was very sick and went to the hospital and when he was there he closed his eyes and took a trip to heaven and back and tells his story to the world.  I love this message: we can go to heaven and experience so many wonderful things.  I am a Christian and believe in what Colton did see and hear while he visited heaven.  This book is not for skeptics it is for Christians that believe in God and what the scriptures have to say concerning God.

Some of the things that Colton experienced saw:

  1. Music
  2. Angels
  3. Animals
  4. Relatives
  5. God
  6. Holy Spirit
  7. Gold

What I loved most about this book is the scripture verses that are proof that he really was in heaven.  The message is wonderful and for everyone not just for kids.  I think that God used Colton to tell his story of Faith and Belief in Christ so that others may know the truth.  As scripture says, the Truth will set you free.  I believe the bible is the words of Christ and are the Truth of what Christ wants us to all learn, grow and show the entire world through our actions and deeds.

  1. The book HEAVEN IS FOR REAL was a fascinating read for me.  For many it has given them hope for eternal life.  To me, this is a far too important a subject to put my hope in a little boy’s experience.  I wanted to see what God had to say so I went to the Bible.  I have written a Bible study about heaven.  I would be delighted to send you a free copy.  Email me at heaven.study@yahoo.com and I will email you a copy.  If you have only seen the movie, I would suggest you read the book.  The movie changed somethings, add things that did not happen and left out some great material.
