#1 New York Times best-seller with more than 11 million copies sold and Amazon’s #17 best-selling book of all time. Heaven Is for Real was the best-selling non-fiction book of 2011 as reported by Nielsen’s Bookscan, and was developed as a major motion picture by Sony in 2014. “Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.” When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back. Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read. With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.” Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child. Continue the Burpos story in Heaven Changes Everything: The Rest of Our Story. Heaven Is for Real also is available in Spanish, El cielo es real.

A letter written with the hopes of bringing back her mother, a story of love that evolves and dies in glimpses, friendships formed in a cemetery and a little girl whose hair got burnt. Addressed to heaven is a collection of short stories that relates to everyday life but more importantly, to an everyday human. Madness: Every individual carries a world within. Our heads comprise of secret universes. What we think, what we do is a question we can’t answer. And amidst this, madness resides. This theme explores dark depression and unforgiving pangs of anxiety that can grip one anywhere. Self-harm and that one blinking thought to end oneself completely. Dreamers: They come from tiny places; tiny spaces. They dream of going to unheard places doing unimaginable things. The belief that anyone can do anything drives them. And its fire refuses to die. “One day…” and so it goes. Femme: Only women know what women are, the rest are spectators. Theme is dedicated to God’s most beautiful creation, the creator of life and many roles that she wears like a cape: women. Semicolon: What could have ended, but didn’t. What could have stopped, but didn’t. Think about it and your world can go round. A semicolon of one’s life bents it into ways one could not have predicted. Theme explores the wars and lives that could have stopped but didn’t, all because of a dot and a comma combined.

As you read each of these wonderful stories aloud during family times or on your own, you will see how you, too, can reach out to your world through deeds and prayer to tell others the good news about Jesus and His love.
