Heaven Is for Real cover


Based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, HEAVEN IS FOR REAL brings to the screen the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world.

The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth … things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.

11 Visitor Reviews for Heaven Is for Real

  1. Bernard J. Poineau Jr. says:

    A neighbor lady was over one day and I notice she had a book in her hand. I for one am not what you would consider a reader other than the bible. She had the book Heaven IS For Real. She said here you can have it. Well I started to read it and I could not stop until I read the entire book ! I can remember the last to visit by my guardian angel. I remember well when he took and led me through a tunnel with a while light at the end and I went through it. I was shown a little bit of Heaven where everyone was dressed in a white robe. This book answered other encounters that I have had with the spiritual world. I started to write a small book of short stories about my adventures. If by chance if anyone is interested I’m asking nothing for it. I’m on

  2. jane candelaria says:

    After my son’s passing 2 years ago, the girls at work told me to read this book. They believed it would bring me comfort, knowing that my son is sitting on Jesus’ lap…..And it surely did….I still hurt from losing my first-borne son, but my healing process was helped by reading this testimony to Heaven….

  3. Gloria Mroz says:

    My husband and I saw the movie and I have since read the book. The movie was wondrous and it only reaffirmed my faith and beliefs that I have held onto my entire life. The acting was spectacular in this film. Praise be to God.
