Heaven is for Real is a book about a boy, Colton, who had a near death experience when he got sick from appendicitis. After he miraculously recovers and leaves the hospital he starts to tell his parents (father a pastor and mother a children’s minister) about what happened while he was in heaven. He recalls to his parents what heaven was like and what Jesus Christ looked like.
This book to me was a huge eye opener. Especially towards the end of the book where they tell a story of a girl who had a some what similar experience. Typically I do not read non fiction books, but this one was well worth the read for me.
