One of the reasons I chose to read Todd Burpo’s Heaven is for Real was due to the significant amount of hype and controversy surrounding this particular piece of text. I have been continuously baffled by, since the release of this book, the amount of people that tear this book down and criticize it, almost page by page. I found this book to be incredibly peaceful and calming, especially since I have lost three members of my family in just the past four months. Whether the experiences written about in this book are true or fabricated, the messages are ones that I took to heart.
I just learned that a book has been recently been published solely to attack this one, and I find that to be ridiculous. I am aware that this review is more about the criticism about it, but I think it is definitely worth the time spent on reading it. If you are looking for an easy, calming, and thought provoking book, I strongly suggest buying yourself a copy of this book and reading it as soon as you have the chance. My only hope, after reading this book, is that heaven actually is for real.
