Heaven is for Real

I recently read Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent. I received the book from Booksneeze for an honest book review. Heaven is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters Heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.
Colton said he met his miscarried sister whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.
The story is amazing to say the least. I'm amazed by how much Colton said he saw and happened in the short time he said he was there. I just can't get over Colton saying he saw Satan while he was in heaven. That's not one of the people I'd expect to see there. This is a great book.
