Watch The Trailer of Coming Movie 'Heaven Is For Real"...Looks Like It Will Be a Stunner Next Easter!

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.

Queen Latifah Shares How Faith Helped Her Through Tragedy

Dana Elaine Owens, better known as "Queen Latifah," says she once relied on alcohol to cope with the tragedies in her life, but it was her faith in God that ultimately helped her through feelings of anger and sadness.

In an interview with Good Housekeeping magazine, the rapper turned actress shared how her "life was rocked to the core" when her brother, a police officer, was killed in a motorcycle accident not long after her career had taken off. Owens, who was raised Baptist, says her faith was particularly impacted by the loss.

"And I felt guilty," she told the magazine, "because I was angry at God."

After her brother's death, Owens invested herself in her work. She was dealt another emotional blow in 1995, however, when she became the victim of a carjacking and a close friend, who was with her in the car at the time, was shot and nearly died in front of her.

Christian Hip Hop on the rise

Church Clothes 2, officially Church Clothes Vol. 2, is the second mixtape by Christian hip hop artist Lecrae, released on November 7, 2013 by Reach Records. Hosted by Don Cannon, it follows Lecrae's previous mixtape, Church Clothes and Grammy award winning full-length album 'Gravity', both of which came out in 2012.

The highly anticipated mixtape upon release was greeted to over 100,000 downloads in its first two weeks. It currently sits pretty at #2 on iTunes overall, #21 on the Billboard 200 chart, #1 on the Top Christian and Gospel charts and #3 on the Top Rap chart. This is a remarkable feat because the mixtape is available for free downloads on as well as yet it was able to attain that height on itunes just behind Eminem's latest joint. This goes to show how Christian hiphop has emerged from being mute in its genre to becoming a commercially vibrant force to be reckoned with.

While CC2 is enjoying all the attention, another gospel hip hop album is also in the top 20 on iTunes. Collision Records artist and WLAK member Alex Faith has his debut album 'ATLast' claiming the #13 spot on hip hop charts peaking at #8. Shoutout to Lecrae and Alex.

Faith for representing the Lord well with their art.
