Heaven is for Real Deluxe Edition By Todd Burpo with Lynn Vincent

Synopsis by

Deluxe, keepsake edition of the best-selling book and true story of a young boy's visit to heaven after life-saving surgery.
Heaven Is for Real is the true story 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. The family didn't know what to believe but soon the evidence was clear.
Colton said he met his miscarried sister whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born, then shared impossible-to-know details about each. He describes the horse that only Jesus could ride, about how "reaaally big" God and his chair are, and how the Holy Spirit "shoots down power" from heaven to help us.
Told by the father but often in Colton's own words, the disarmingly simple message is heaven is a real place, Jesus really loves children, and be ready there is a coming last battle.
My comments:
This is an easy to read book from young adults to older readers.
What I like about this book is that it gives hope. Hope that things will be better and in those who believes , that there is really a heaven. Many instances in the book, strengthen what have been described in the Bible. 
What is written here is pretty much believable as there is no way a four year old kid can know so many stuffs unless he had experienced it himself. Some who disbelieved may say that he had been "tutor" but it will be up to individual opinion.
There were some family photos in the book . Its good to see the adorable face of Colton.
What I don't like about this book is that it's more from the point of view of the father instead of Colton. There are 154 pages in this story without adding in notes and word of the author, and the first 45 pages is all about the family and the misfortune that befell them.
In my opinion, not much about heaven is reveal in this book.Only little here and there.
It's hard for me to comment here. How do you comment about a book like this? Well, it;s either you believe it or you don't. You will have to read it for yourself.

I give it for stars out of 5 star for the writing style.
