of the Doves asked if any of us has seen the face of the Risen
Christ. Not me, but I think that a three and a half year old
Coulton Burpo did. Coulton is around 11 years old now and has
been interviewed on several TV stations. His father, Todd Burpo,
written "Heaven is for Real". The book describes how he and his
came to the conclusion that Coulton had a "heavenly experience"
a serious surgery when he was only three years old. I'll let
the amazing details for yourself. I bought my copy on Amazon.
Once Coulton's parents became convinced that their son had been in
heaven, they would ask him what Jesus really looked like. They
show him artists' interpretations, but usually Coulton would say, "No,
that's not right."
One day his father had a painting of Christ by Akiane on his computer
monitor. When Coulton saw it, he stopped dead in his tracks,
it, and said, "That one's right".
Akiane is a girl that started skillful painting when she was very
young. She claims to have had visions of heaven. Her
mother, a former
atheist, is now a believer. You can find more about Akiane on her
