How does a visit to heaven change your life?
Todd and Sonja Burpo’s almost-four-year-old son Colton made an unforgettable trip to heaven and back during the darkest, most stressed-out days of their lives. Times were tough, money was scarce, and the bills, frustrations, and fears were piled high.
How did Colton’s visit to heaven change things for them individually and as a family? And what does any of this mean for you and your life?
Todd, and for the first time ever Sonja and Colton, from their perspectives, share what has happened since the release of their New York Times bestseller, Heaven Is for Real. Through their own experiences, and after hearing from thousands of the more than eight million readers who have shared how the story has affected them, they show you how believing heaven is for real will help you survive hardships here on earth, including the death of a loved one or the loss of a child through tragedy, miscarriage, or even abortion.
Todd, Sonja, and Colton answer questions such as:
· Is it really okay to struggle with and question God? Really?
· What hope is there for me if I’ve lost a child or a loved one to death? Will I ever see them again?
· What does heaven feel like?
· Can I know for sure that I’m going to heaven?
· Does God really hear me when I pray?
They also explain how their story can help you keep thoughts of eternity in mind in the midst of your own overly busy, stressed-out lives.
Heaven truly is for real, and believing it changes everything!
In this follow-up to Todd and Sonja Burpo's wildly successful Heaven Is for Real about their young son Todd's trip to Heaven and back the husband-and-wife team continue to tell their remarkable story. Offering up their own experiences and those shared with them by fans, the authors assert that a belief in Heaven can help people endure the trials, tribulations, and challenges of life. Both Stu Gray and Brook Bryant turn in workmanlike performances as narrators. Gray's narration is well paced, crisp, and uniformly cheery perhaps overly cheery at times. Additionally, the enthusiasm with which he reads sometimes feels forced, a quality listeners may find off-putting. Bryant's performance is more understated. Her voice is breathy and slightly accented, as she ably alters her tone to emphasize key points. Fans of the authors' first book will find much to like in this audio edition.
