Live every day with the hope of heaven!
A shattered leg, kidney stones, and a lump diagnosed as hyperplasia. Times were tough, money was scarce, and the bills and frustrations were piling up. It was into this kind of stressed out life that God sent Todd and Sonja Burpo the interruption of a life-threatening illness and emergency surgery for their almost four-year-old son Colton - an interruption that included his unforgettable journey to heaven. How did they cope? And how can they help us keep thoughts of eternity in mind in the midst of our own overly busy, stressed out lives?
In 50 unique inspirational readings based on excerpts from their story, Todd and Sonja share their family’s responses and reactions to the Heaven Is for Real experience. They answer questions about what it’s like to struggle with and question God, to doubt, and to even get angry with him. They also offer new insights into what God might be doing with those interruptions he allows into our lives. Each reading closes with a scripture to provide biblical reinforcement of the ideas shared and a take-away thought or action point to help readers incorporate the reading's inspiration into daily life. Keep the hope of heaven alive in your life. Heaven truly is for real, and it changes everything!

I think is a good audio book to listen for the sake of the scriptures being applied to real life situations. However, this is not an indispensable book to believe that God is real, I already know God is real because the Bible says so! and because I have personally experienced God in my own life.
We have to keep in my mind that none espiritual personal experienced can be put at the same level of authority that the Bible. Our primary source of the truth about heaven must the Bible itself, anything else should be examined with absolute care & biblical discernement .
I have been looking forward to this book since learning it was going to be released. It was good, but not as good as the first book. They ended up retelling a great deal from the first book. I expected the Burpo family to go into further depth than they did.
I would still recommend it if you enjoyed "Heaven Changes Everything." Just do not expect any new revelations from this book. The part that I did enjoy was hearing the spontaneous prayer by their son.
