‘Heaven is For Real’ Adapted as a Film

heavenisrealTodd Burpo‘s bestselling Christian novel Heaven is For Real has been adapted into a film. The film was directed by Randall Wallace and stars Greg Kinnear, Kelly Reilly and Thomas Haden Church.

Like the book, the film from Sony Pictures follows the story of a young boy who claims to visit heaven after a life-saving appendectomy. Check it out:

Todd and Sonja Burpo are a real-life couple whose son Colton claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth: things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.

As Roger Ebert points out, the film is part of Hollywood’s push into marketing faith-based films to Christians.
