What if your child had visited Heaven and returned to tell you about it? Would it change your life? It changed the lives of the Burpo family, along with the lives of many others who were inspired by the book they wrote, Heaven is for Real. Since I really enjoyed reading that book, I was quite willing to read their most recent book about their experience.
Heaven Changes Everything by Todd and Sonja Burpo is a devotional reader that shares the lessons they have been learning since their son’s amazing experience. It is written in the same friendly style as Heaven is for Real. Although I thoroughly enjoyed the first book, I found parts of this one to be quite repetitive. Although the lessons are more in depth than the story was in the first book, most of them come from a section of the first book. In some ways, it almost seems like a segmented commentary on the first book. Because of this, it would certainly not be necessary to read the first book in order to appreciate the second.
The book is broken up into 42 devotional readings. Each one shares a portion of the first book and then talks about the lessons that were learned. Some of those lessons include: Forgiveness is for Real, The Blessing of Friends, Life as a Sermon, and Heaven – You’re Gonna Like It.
