|A scene from the movie "Heaven is for real"|
Ten years after Christian pastor Todd Burpo of Nebraska shared the near-death story of his then three-year-old son in The New York Times #1 Best Seller Heaven Is For Real, Hollywood is putting the story on the big screen. But even months before the film's release, atheists and Christians are already fighting over it.
A trailer for the "Heaven Is For Real" movie starring actor Greg Kinnear, due in theaters on Easter 2014, reveals some stunning dialogue from the movie reflecting young Colton Burpo's "heavenly" experience.
For instance, the child actor playing Colton tells his mother about the sister that "died in your tummy," which no one had told him about.
"In heaven, this little girl came up to me. She told me she died in your tummy," said the boy to his shocked parents in a scene made more dramatic by a haunting soundtrack.
