Book Description
A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.

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.

Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.

    Scritto da un pastore metodista del Nebraska racconta l'esperienza, vissuta dal figlioletto, di "viaggio" in Paradiso. Leggendolo non si può fare a meno di percepire tutta la fede del pastore Todd, dell'importanza che Dio ha nella sua vita. Lettura interessante anche se fatico a credere negli angeli con le ali e nel Paradiso descritto come avviene in questo libro. Probabilmente è una questione del tipo di credo che professiamo.

    Our confidence in the promise of eternity rests on the Word of God, not the testimony of those who claim to have visited. To say, "it is in the Bible, but now I believe it because someone has a compelling story," is to insult the sufficiency of Scripture. There is much theologically troubling regarding this account along with others. Primarily, the focus of comfort is on the reunion with other humans, or the niceness of Jesus, not on the unspeakable glory of God as in Scriptural visions. Hebrews 11 makes it clear that none have gone before have "received what was promised" that we all might be glorified together. Our resurrected bodies are received at return of Christ when the dead are raised.

    As for the theological information that the son apparently learned in heaven, as the pastor of a four year old girl, we have covered all these topics and I find it hard to believe a pastor would not have had those conversations on multiple occasions with their children. Not to mention the high exposure to church lessons and books that his son would have had. The other information regarding the grandfather and miscarriage could have been gleaned through conversations that the child overheard. However, there is a more sinister possibility in all of these accounts. Satan masks as an angel of light. The demons of Jesus' day were rebuked for openly proclaiming him as the Son of God, even though those who heard would have been saved if they had believed it. Paul rebuked the demon possessed girl who was proclaiming, "These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved." What the agenda would be, we cannot say, unless it is to mix in false teaching, or to turn our focus onto a reunion in the sky with confidence based on extra-biblical testimony over a focus on sin and repentance through the gospel and the glory of God.

    Like "90 Minutes in Heaven", there is an authorial self-focus in this account that is also troubling - though not to the same degree as Don Piper's story.

    雖然一路睇一路有點懷疑:這是真的嗎?我是深信有天堂,聖經所說的是真的,但有點懷疑作者。
    Anyway, 這書是一本很好,容易睇,也有發人深省的內容。值得大家去睇。

    可能我真要有像小孩子那種純真的相信!
