#1 New York Times best-seller with more than 11 million copies sold and Amazon’s #17 best-selling book of all time. Heaven Is for Real was the best-selling non-fiction book of 2011 as reported by Nielsen’s Bookscan, and was developed as a major motion picture by Sony in 2014.

“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”

When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.

With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”

Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child. 

Continue the Burpo’ s story in Heaven Changes Everything: The Rest of Our Story. Heaven Is for Real also is available in Spanish, El cielo es real.


  • Quite The Read!

    By Al Tilley The Bum
    It’s tough to believe Colton Burpo actually experienced being in Heaven in his NDE (Near Death Experience). I finished reading the book in almost one day. Todd Burpo makes great parallels between Colton’s experience and what’s written in Scripture. Even though Colton has said nearly everyone in Heaven has wings, nothing in Scripture says we’ll get wings when we die. Human souls are different from Angel’s souls. Do consider reading this. It’s strengthened my belief quite a bit. Peace be with you.

    We are in a time of chaos and fear as the Coronavirus sweeps throughout the world. No one is safe says the media. I decided to read this book instead of focusing on all the hysteria around me. It has reminded me that Heaven is real and that God “our father”is in control and loves us.

    ultimatist you clearly need to read the Holy Bible through. Especially the New Testament. I’m 12 years old and I even know that Romans 10:9 says “If you declare with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and you believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you WILL be saved!” And Mark 11:22-23 says “‘Have faith in God,’ Jesus answered. ‘Truly I tell you if anyone says to this mountain, ‘go throw yourself into the sea!’ And does NOT doubt in their heart but believes what they say will happen, it will be done for them!’” And best of all, one of my favorite Bible verses in the world that I memorized when I was 6 years old 😁, John 3:16 which says: “For God SO LOVED the world that He gave His one and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him will not die, but have everlasting life!” These verses are very clear that if you believe in Jesus Christ, even when you sin, all you have to do is ask God and whoever else you hurt for forgiveness! Yes sometimes it is hard, but just know that no matter who you are, no matter what you’ve done, no matter what you look like, no matter what culture you live in, no matter what race or gender, no matter what clothes you wear or friends you have, or even if you are lonely, JESUS LOVES YOU SO MUCH!!! HE EVEN DIED FOR YOU! HE TOOK THE PUNISHMENT FOR ALL THE SINS YOU HAVE EVER DONE OR EVER WILL DO!!! AND THE BEST PART, GOD ROSE HIM FROM THE DEAD IN REAL REAL LIFE SO THAT YOU CAN LIVE WITH HIM IN HEAVEN FOREVER WHEN YOUR BODY DIES IF YOU BELIEVE IN HIM!!! HEAVEN IS FOR REAL!!!!! If you are not a Christian and you are reading this, the Bible is ALL true. And all of this that I have said IS true too! If you believe it, confess that Jesus is your savior and that He is Lord and ask the Holy Spirit to come into your life (if you want to know more about the Holy Spirit, read Acts chapter 2 in the Holy Bible.) Seriously God will fill that empty hole in your spirit and you will feel so much peace. Go talk to a Christian you know and try to attend church at least once. Talk to the pastor and hopefully he/she will help you in your walk of faith if you REALLY believe. And btw this movie is real good you should check it out. 😂😂 THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME
  • Very Interesting and inspiring book!
