Colton says that after he died he left his body. He was able to go into other areas of the hospital and see what his parents were doing. His parents confirmed that after Colton came back he was able to accurately described what they were doing at the time.
After that, Colton was taken to heaven. He met his great-grandfather, who had died long before Colton was ever born. After Colton returned he was able to recognize youthful pictures of his great-grandfather from a photo album.
In addition, Colton says that he met the little girl that his mother had once miscarried. His mother had never told Colton about that, so that they were absolutely amazed that he knew about her. Colton describes this conversation with this little girl in heaven in the video below.
But Colton did not just meet family members during his trip to heaven.
Colton claims that he actually saw God the Father.
Colton claims that he actually met Jesus.
Colton claims that he actually met John the Baptist.
So is all of this true?
Watch the video and decide for yourself. The video posted below is a Fox News interview with Colton and his father. It is absolutely amazing....
The new book about Colton Burpo's visit to heaven is entitled Heaven is for Real: A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back.
The following is the description of this book from Amazon.com....
Heaven Is for Real is the true story of the four-year old son of a small town Nebraska pastor who during emergency surgery slips from consciousness and enters heaven. He survives and begins talking about being able to look down and see the doctor operating and his dad praying in the waiting room. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.But it is not just Colton that has had these kinds of experiences.
Colton said he met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.
Told by the father, but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready, there is a coming last battle.
Many, many children who have had near-death experiences say that they have been to heaven and that they have met Jesus.
So are they all lying?
Are they all hallucinating?
Or is something else going on here? Do these experiences represent strong evidence for Christianity?

Also, we wanted to ask you one more question today.
If you died tonight, do you know for sure that you would go to heaven?
Heaven is a very real place, and those who are in a right relationship with God will go there someday.
But none of us is perfect, right?
We have all sinned greatly.
There is only one way to get into a right relationship with God and that is through His Son.
The truth is that Jesus Christ (Yeshua in Hebrew) died on the cross to pay the penalty for all of our sins so that we could be brought into a right relationship with God.
If you will repent from your sins and confess Jesus as Lord, you will be saved and you will go to heaven when you die too. For much, much more about this, please see the following article that we posted on another one of our websites: What Does The Bible Say About Salvation?
