Transcript of Heaven IS For Real

Written By: Todd Burpo
Heaven is for Real
The setting is mainly in Imperial, Nebraska. However, another major setting is at the Great Plains Regional Medical Hospital. Finally, and definitely the most memorable setting, Heaven.
The theme of the story is to never give up on God. When Colton was severely ill, the family continued to pray to God for healing for their son. God protected and healed their son. God didn't stop there! He even took Colton to be with Him in Heaven while Colton's earthly body was in surgery. Colton's family never gave up on God, and God definitely never gave up on them.
