Heaven is for Real by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent

The publishers description of Heaven is for Real A Little Boy's Astounding Story of His Trip to Heaven and Back by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent reads:
A young boy emerges from life-saving surgery with remarkable stories of his visit to heaven.
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.

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.
I should not have been surprised at just how compelling I found this book. From the first page to the last, I was touched by the depth of the revelations revealed. The God we serve can indeed speak profound truths, even through a child as young as Colton.

It was exciting to watch how Todd and his wife reacted to and absorbed what Colton was telling them, and how they processed the view of heaven that indeed lines up with God’s Word. If you have ever wondered what heaven is like, you don’t want to miss reading Colton’s story.

I find it a little hard to believe that this little boy was not either coached with his bible story books and strong influences from the family beliefs. Or, whether the parents only took note of what the boy said about heaven that fitted in with or supported their belief system.
I believe that people have genuine near death experience but this was a little too tailored.
