'Read the Book First Friday' ~ Heaven is For Real by Todd Burpo

An inspirational bestseller hits screens in April

Have you read the book Heaven is for Real??  If not, you should grab it and read it before the movie version starring Greg Kinnear, hits theaters on April 16.

For those who don't know, Heaven Is for Real is a 2010 memoir by Todd Burpo, whose son, Colton, had a vision of heaven while undergoing lifesaving surgery. The book has spent more than 150 consecutive weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and with a movie about to be released it will no doubt stay there for at least a few dozen more.
With its themes of family and faith, I'm not surprised that they slotted this one for a holiday release (right at Easter time).

Do you plan to see Heaven Is for Real?  Check out the tear-jerker of a trailer below.
