"…when I was angry at God because I couldn’t go to my son, hold him, and comfort him, God’s son was holding my son in his lap.” -Todd Burpo, Heaven Is For Real"
Heaven Is For Real - Todd Burpo
I have been hearing all the hype for this book for several months now and it had been siting in my room for a while, but I was not positive I would really connect with it. The thought of a child writing a book seemed hard to understand, and I’m a little bit of a pessimist when it comes to things like people swearing jesus is on their toasted bread.
But, I have to say, I was proved wrong with this book. The book is written from the father’s perspective and very believable. Being a preacher himself he is already very well spoken and good with words. I loved the fact that they never sat their child down and just said, “so tell us what you saw” but slowly put the pieces together. I read this book in a couple days. You could easily polish it off on a rainy day. Easy read and it is a great perspective. And Do I believe it? You bet!
