Two months before his 4th birthday, Colton Burpo was rushed to the emergency room with a burst appendix.  When he awoke, he had an amazing story to tell;  That of being dead and going to heaven;  meeting his great Grandfather, John The Baptist, Samson, and even Jesus.  His Father Todd Burpo, an Evangelical Preacher, turned his son's experiences into a 163 page book, "Heaven Is For Real," which has now been turned into a movie.
