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. Colton describes his experiences
of heaven, deceased relatives, pets, and biblical characters.
Heaven Is For Real Ministries,

is for Real. The book has spent 88 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

and is hosted by the D.B. Reinhart Institute for Ethics in Leadership.
