I have a rather eclectic love of books. I know what I like and I tend not to be a severe critic. If I enjoyed it, it gets 4 or 5 stars.
I really enjoyed the story, and I do believe some of it, however I think it might have been spiced up a bit. Burpo is a pastor and this doesn't sound like any other near death experience I have read about or researched. It is way too biblical. Either way though, it is a really good read and it is an inspiring story.
I liked the narrators voice and was excited to hear what all Christians believe in.
When colton confirmed akienes picture of Jesus was correct. I always loved that picture and now see Jesus vividly.
What an amazing story! If you ever doubted your belief in heaven this story will make you believe again!
Hope for what heaven might be like

Heaven is for real! I am not sure this book is completely true however.
You can pretty much read this at double or triple speed and skip the pages and pages of filler. Most of the first half is just blah blah blah about really boring stuff.
I found almost nothing worthwhile besides the few pages that describe his little boy's experience with heaven.
I'm pretty cynical, but I figured 'why would I not want this to be true?' With that mindset, it's encouraging, and inspiring to hear of the other side of life. I know there are reasons you might not think it's true, but it doesn't contradict any scriptures, and so set aside your list of reasons to hate on this, and take a listen and be encouraged. I found my prayer life totally changed by this.
Easy to listen to, interesting, good.

It made me gasp a few times. In a good way.
It is good to have it as an audible because it helps whileaway the weary hours for me who drive many,many kilometres. Also the skill of the voice presentation of the reader makes it much more interesting.
the way the little boy would come up with different things he remembered at different times about his Heaven experience.
Nothing. He was great. He had that Midwestern accent down pat~
Yes- It was a short read and you could easily listen to it in a sitting. Especially if you are traveling by car or plane.
When he said the Blessed Mother was there kneeling in prayer before the thrown of God. I often pray for her intercession before God and imagined many many times her kneeling before His thrown in my behalf. Because, who could turn down the mother of God and her requests?... Certainly not the spouse of the Holy Spirit and the mother of your son.!
The book is similar to one I could have written 15 years ago with my own daughter and her experiences with God. When we are children, there is no
I definitely couldn't stop listening to this audible book from the moment it started. It really challenged my own personal views about heaven and God. I really enjoyed it and have recommended it to several others already who are also listening to it now.
When the Father is talking about venting his anger at the Lord for his child being so close to death. Then later realizing at the moment he was the ugliest with God about wanting to save the life of his son...his son was actually sitting in the arms of Jesus.
