Finished Heaven is For Real

I am so happy to say that I finished my book Heaven is For Real. It was by far the best and most wonderful book I have ever read. It was amazing to see how a little 4 year old boy could get through all that at such a young age. I can't explain my emotion about it right now because it was so crazy. It was a book that I finished in 1 and a half weeks and too me that was a very good time amount. Coming from me who doesn't like to read but this book changed me which is very good.

When you first start reading this book you think that it is made up and there is no way it could be true. Believe me I know that's how I felt too. As I went on there were so many things that Colton say that made me believe it was true. Some of the things that he said were:

  • "He nodded, eyes bright. 'Did you know that Jesus' cousin's name is John.'"
  • "'It was big, Dad... really really big, because God is the biggest one there is. And he really, really loves us, Dad. You can't belieeeeve how much he loves us!'"
These were the first two lines that made me think. He couldn't have known all this for being 4 years old, it would have been crazy if he did. That is when I said this has to be true it cant be a lie.

If I had to rate this book I would give it a 5/5 because it was so well written and kept me on my toes. I love books that keep me on the tip of my toes and it was one of those books. It was so neat to see how someone could have overcome that major injury and had a great experience coming out of it. I don't know what I would do if I was in his shoes, I guess it would be hard for me. If you are looking for a new book to read I highly recommend this book. I promise you won't regret it!


  1. I heard they are coming out with a movie and it looks really powerful! Are you planning on seeing? How is the book would you recommend it, is it one of the books you cant put down?

    1. Yes I saw the movie and it was so good! I would deffintly recommend this book, it is so worth the time!

  2. I really would like to read this book, I hope the movie is going to be good as well.

  3. I havent read this book, but, i want to. movie looks good!

  4. Great quotes! And textual evidence.

  5. That sounds great but what is the book really about? and what made you think it can't be true?

  6. The quotes you have are really good.
