The Boy Who Went to Heaven

August 1st, 2011 Inspirational

Colton Burpo, now 11 years old, claims that when he was 4 years old he went to heaven while undergoing emergency surgery for a ruptured appendix. A book detailing his experience, called Heaven is for Real, has become a New York Times Best Seller. During the surgery doctors worried that Colton might not live. However, the boy recovered, and when he came to he told his parents that he believed he’d gone to heaven. He claimed that angels carried him to meet three people: Jesus, his miscarried sister, and his great grandfather, who had died before he was born.

Colton also described meeting Jesus' cousin, John the Baptist, who baptized him despite having no idea who the boy was. The fact that Colton mentioned a miscarried sibling was especially remarkable, as his parents say that they had never mentioned the miscarriage to their son. Colton also told his parents that he had seen them praying for him while he was on the operating table. He described where his father was at the time, which not even his mother knew.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Colton described Heaven, saying that the streets are paved with gold, and that the gates to heaven are golden and pearl. He also claimed to have sat in Jesus' lap and caught a glimpse of God, who he said was the biggest being there, capable of holding the world in his hands. Despite being the focus of a best-selling book, Colton is now a normal 11-year-old boy who enjoys music, wrestling and playing golf, according to the news source.

Most of the money from the book's sales is going toward charity.
