In the ' Heaven is for real', a young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with stories of his visit to heaven. The book presents the history 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. Colton says met his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how 'really big' God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit 'shoots down power' from heaven, and more.
