"...described images that he said he saw in heaven — like the bloody wounds on Jesus’ palms"

Historical Roman accounts and experimental work have established that the nails were driven between the small bones of the wrists (radial and ulna) and not through the palms. Nails driven through the palms will strip out between the fingers when made to support the weight of the human body.

And let me guess, all the angels in heaven had wings, even though it was never described so in the bible. Maybe it was in one of the books the 'editors' of the bible decided to leave out.

He said they had swords too because Satan keeps trying to get back in.

"...their son’s story, which came out slowly, months and years after his sudden illness and operation in 2003."

As with the best seller "Embraced By The Light", the stories seem to come pouring out of their mouth a long time afterward.

Why wait so long before telling these amazing stories?

"which came out slowly..." I think the word they were looking for was "coaxed" out.

Amazing story! Do I have to convert to Christianity to go to this mystical magical place, or am I screwed?

inb4 Todd Burpo turns 16 and reveals that his parents forced him to say everything that was in the book.

"...Colton Burpo, the son of an evangelical pastor......Todd Burpo wrote the book with Lynn Vincent, who collaborated with Sarah Palin on 'Going Rogue.'......"

I don't want to be skeptical, but.......

I find it interesting that a miscarriage would grow up to be recognizable as his sister, but everyone else he met was the age they were when they died. That's handy for the life-at-conception crowd.

you cannot point out illogical statements like that to believers

Maybe you should read the book before spewing...he saw his great grandfather as a young man in his prime. The book tells how Todd showed Colton a pic of his ggf as an old man and Colton looked at him and asked "who's that?" Then his Dad asked his grandmother to send an old pic of the ggf when he was young (note that Colton NEVER saw the pic before) and Todd showed him the pic and he identified him as the ggf but couldn't recognize the great grandma as a young woman.

I don't know. I always pictured Jesus as an old Jewish guy. But no, he has blue eyes, who knew?

he was a 30 something jewish guy....and he was brown
06:49 PM on 04/17/2011
You were there, huh and met him? Let me ask you something...God needed his Son to be listened to and to spread his message...do you think he is going to have him look exactly like every other brown jew in the area? Would it not have been smarter to make Jesus look VERY different than everyone else so he had light skin and blue eyes? It would make you take notice wouldn't it? God wanted Him to look different because He needed people to wonder how he could look so different. And no, I am not evangelical, not that that is a bad thing.

"And the Burpos said that Colton painstakingly described images that he said he saw in heaven — like the bloody wounds on Jesus’ palms — that he had not been shown before."

Jesus wouldn't have bloody palms. When being crucified the nails would have been driven through his wrists. I know that the popular imagery is for the palms, but that's just not how crucifixion works.

Really. Sounds like Jr. had a nice dream about all the characters in his children's bible. Nothing wrong with that, and I'm glad he recovered from his illness, but it can't possibly be seen as "proof" of anything.

So a 4 year old had a dream about all of the bible stories that had been forced down his throat in his life up to that point.

I see yet ANOTHER cult forming....... Jees!
