The #1 New York Times bestseller now with a film-tie in cover, a new introduction and updated epilogue from the authors.
It was the true story which touched the hearts of millions and became an international publishing phenomenon with eight million books in print. Four year-old Colton Burpo claimed to have visited heaven during a near-death experience, recounting details with childlike innocence and speaking matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth…things he couldn’t possibly know. Told by his father but often in Colton’s own words, the disarmingly simple message is that heaven is a real place. Now a major motion picture slated for May release in Australia, this film tie-in edition includes bonus material, including details of the movie making experience and recent photos from the life of the family and the filming. The notion of heaven has intrigued since the beginning of time, and Colton’s amazing story will at once charm, astound, challenge beliefs and, ultimately, offer hope.
