In the book, Colton Burpo experiences a near death expirence. Colton claims he died and went to Heaven, and he brings back many stories that he would have never known of. He told his mom that he saw his sister, a baby that his mom miscarriage. He told his dad about his great grandfather who die when his dad was about thirteen. His dad, a pastor, was having a hard time understanding all of this. How he claims he went to Heaven, how he tells these stories, and how he can basically put terms in the Bible in a kid deffintion. Colton also explains how God and Jesus look like. He also said that he saw everything in Heaven. He also said that there are many colors in Heaven and that it never becomes dark, that it's always bright. The book is very interesting. I finished it all in one day. When you start to read this book, you never want to put it down.
