Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent

I loved this book. The simple words from a 3 year old child who visited heaven perfectly matches my version of Heaven. I believe heaven IS for real. May is a perfect time to read this book since men and their sons all over the world are celebrating the restoration of the Aaronic Priesthood. John the Baptist, the cousin of Jesus, had the authority to baptize Jesus Christ. Who better to restore the Priesthood on the Earth? In May, 1829, Joseph Smith and Oliver Cowdery were ordained to the Aaronic Priesthood. This required John the Baptist to touch their heads with his living hands. Colton talked about the cousin of Jesus, John the Baptist, being in Heaven with him. As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, this came as no surprise. To Todd Burpo, a Wesleyan Pastor, it was a shock. He was also shocked to hear about his Grandfather greeting his son - a boy he had never met. Latter-day Saints believe our ancestors are very much aware of who we are. This was a perfect book to share with my children during this very important month. Thanks, Rev. Burpo for sharing a book that shares my version of Heaven.

  1. Highly readable,I couldn't put it down,the author speaks from the heart from what you can tell is a genuine experience he had. Very edifying to the believer and should be an eyeopener for the agnostic or skeptic.
