Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent

This story is about a 4 year old little boy that "visits" heaven when he almost dies due to a burst appendix.  I have to admit that I really want to believe, but because it took the boy, Colton, years to fully tell the story, it seems to me that his imagination may have been running wild.  I do believe the parents truly believe what he is saying, but I am just having a hard time buying it.  The theme of the story is good, though.  Trust God through all situations...He hears you when you pray to Him....He loves you....are all truths.  I wouldn't discourage anyone from reading this book, because we all need to come to our own conclusions, but I wouldn't recommend it either.
