From Contributor B Harmon: Heaven Is For Real is a movie that the entire family should watch. This book is just one of the many books I have read on Heaven. Although I enjoyed others more, I think this movie trailer will be an eye opener to many who doubt the existence of a REAL Heaven. We certainly need more movies like this to inspire our youth and to encourage them to BELIEVE in Jesus.
Enjoy the trailer!

“Heaven is for Real,” which was written by Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent, chroniclesBurpo’s story of his son Colton. Colton tells his family he visited heaven while he was in emergency surgery for his appendix. The book was first leased in 2010 and is still number 12 on the New York Times paperback nonfiction bestseller list for the week of Nov. 24.
The movie version stars “Little Miss Sunshine” actor Greg Kinnear as Burpo, “Flight” actress Kelly Reilly as his wife Sonja Burpo, and first-time actor Connor Corum as Colton. Actors Thomas Haden Church and Margo Martindale co-star. “Secretariat” director Randall Wallace is helming the adaptation. The film is set to come to theaters on April 16.
The trailer shows the Burpos waiting as Colton is in surgery and Colton telling his parents of his experiences afterward, including seeing a sister who died in a miscarriage (an incident the Burpos say they had never discussed with Colton) and seeing his great-grandfather.
