After a series of family challenges and financial woes, the Burpo family sets off on a well-earned trip to explore a butterfly pavilion. Afterwards, the youngest son, Colton, experiences vomiting, fever, and abdominal pain. Thinking it was just the stomach flu, the Burpos care for him themselves. However, when it becomes apparent that Colton has been suffering from a ruptured appendix for days, things take a turn for the worse. As Colton underwent emergency surgery something unexplainable happened. Colton woke up with knowledge of events and people he couldn’t have known. Little by little Colton shares the story of his trip to Heaven and back. As the Burpos struggle to piece it all together, it becomes apparent that they were part of something much bigger than they thought. This book will challenge you to think about the afterlife, faith, and the words of a four-year-old little boy.

The Bottom Line: This slim book is like two stories in one. On the one hand we learn about the Burpo family and on the other we learn about Colton’s trip to Heaven and back. Whether you are a Christian or not, this book invites you to consider the possibility of Heaven and faith. Recommended for anyone interested in the afterlife, religion, and happy endings.

When Colton made it thru an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his survival. What they weren't expecting was the story that emerged in the months that followed -- the detailing their little boy's trip to Heaven & back. Colton was not yet 4 years old and had not yet learned to read but ...

{my thoughts} – This book is truly astounding. It is also a must read for any Christian Believer. The innocence of a child is something that is often overlooked by many adults and this book brings that into a whole new prospective. I laughed, I cried and I was in awe throughout this whole book. I enjoyed reading about the conversations with young Colton as well as the Bible References in which Todd had used to back up everything that his son had been saying. IT truly brings the whole Heaven, God, Holy Spirit and the concept of time for that matter into another light. It amazes me that with all the Bible reading I have done, all the sermons I have attended in that past, that most of the things this child had come up to his parents and said, I honestly had no clue what they were. I enjoy reading my Bible from time to time but I tend to stay away from the book of Revelations because well it’s confusing to me, but this child was saying things straight out of that book of the Bible and he was saying them factual. It just well it blows my mind. Also, the other little girl mentioned in the book that had similar experiences as young Colton. That absolutely astounded me. I look forward to seeing the movie that is being made in regards to this book in the very near future!… (mere)

I think this is the 3rd book I've read about a near death experience. This young boy didn't technically die, but I'm sure it's close enough for the experience. Each story I've read was slightly different but similar in discussing the hardship of what brought them to the experience and in the adamant belief that what was experienced during a sort of detachment from their bodies was real. I'm sure the validation of one's beliefs is very rewarding, if hard won.
