So lately I've been reading like crazy...I've finished 2 books in the past week (which is not usually like me because I'm a SLOW reader). But I've been sitting at the pool a lot and trying to get lots of reading in before I start classes as I know things are going to start to get a little crazy once that happens.
Anyway, one of the books I read this week was called Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent about a four-year old who undergoes a traumatic experience and almost dies. A few months after the whole experience the little boy, Colton starts talking about his experience meeting Jesus and going up to heaven. Slowly the family learns that Colton had a very unique experience when he was undergoing surgery, an experience that very few have.
The book is so interesting because it really makes you think about what heaven is and why this little boy had this experience. Everybody has different ideas and opinions about religion but I did find this book reaffirming and coming from a 4 year old it seemed very innocent and real. I would definitely say if you are interested in religion to check this book out, it's such a quick read and I don't think you'll regret it.
