Published 06/24/2012, Duluth News Tribune
Synopsis: “Heaven is for Real” is the story of a very young and sick boy who goes to heaven and sees God. He also meets the grandfather he never knew and an older sister he did not know existed. When he awakens in the hospital, his parents are overjoyed, but puzzled at what he tells them he saw. “There are animals there,” he tells them, “and I met Jesus. He had some markers.” “What color markers?” his father asked. “Red markers,” the boy says, and he points to the palms of his hands, and the tops of his feet. His father and mother realized he was describing where the nails had gone into Jesus. Knowing their son had never seen a picture of Jesus on the cross, they were convinced he saw him.Word count: 202
