Heaven is For Real DVD based Conversation Kit

Heaven is For Real is a little boy's astounding story of his trip to heaven and back.  It has become a #1 New York Times bestseller and this DVD series is a conversation guide for groups and/or families.  There are 5 sessions and all talk about different aspects of heaven.

I have to be honest.  I have been a skeptic of this book all along and I probably shouldn't have even looked into this DVD series.  It is just hard for me to accept the testimony or witness of a 4 year old boy who says he has seen heaven over what the Bible says about heaven.

The interview was pretty basic.  I mean, heaven is colorful.  Seriously?  Are there animals in heaven.  Oh the boy enjoyed playing with the lions.  And everyone was nice in heaven.  Okay no surprises there.   The Dad who is a Pastor also shared in the DVD's and again, no surprising revelation there.

All in all, I don't see that anyone will learn anything new from this study.  No new revelations.  And should that surprise us as God Himself says that nothing shall be added or taken away from His Word.

I got my copy for free from Thomas Nelson Publishing in exchange for an honest review. All opinions belong to me.

It's no surprise that Todd Burpo's book, Heaven Is For Real is a bestseller. People love hearing about that place Shakespeare called "the undiscovered country." We want to know that there is something after death. Parents who have lost children want to know that their children are all right. People are looking for hope behind that great curtain of death. I believe many people will read Heaven Is For Real looking for that hope and they will find what they are looking for. At the very least, they will walk away having had an enjoyable read
