Heaven Changes Everything by Todd and Sonja Burpo is an extension of the first book, Heaven is For Real. In the first book, Colton Burpo, retells his story of visiting heaven. It would be a good idea for anyone interested in reading this book, to have read the first book, so that they know the details of the story and to enjoy this one fully.
This book is written by Colton's parents, Todd and Sonja. Each chapter opens with a brief excerpt from Heaven is For Real, followed by a narrative that builds on the principles of the excerpt or discusses events that have happened since the publication of the first book, a thought to contemplate and finally a Bible verse linked to the devotion's main point. The topics covered vary from serving, grieving, the afterlife, evangelism, prayer and many more.
It was great reading the "mom details" written by Sonja. It also contains snippets from the rest of the children and how they've dealt with things since the story happened.
This book would be a great gift for just about anyone but especially for those dealing with a loss of a child. Bundle this book with Heaven Is For Real and it becomes a great tool for sharing Christ with someone experiencing loss or struggling with every day struggles as their story offers hope beyond those struggles.
I wish to thank BookSneeze's blogger review program for the complimentary copy of the book.
