What Are You Crying About?: Defeating Grief for Christians (and Other Believers)

For thousands of years humanity has been told that grief is a necessary part of life, that deep sorrow over the passing of our loved ones is expected and a natural process. Brian Holmes says emphatically that, No, it is not! We can be sad when a friend or family member leaves us, but sad as if they are moving to another country, not disappearing from existence forever. You can, and ought to be emotionally stable and spiritually content after the death of a loved one. People sometimes spend months or years of their lives mired in crippling grief which sidetracks them from school, career, positive and healthy parenting, or other fruitful endeavors. Grief sabotages happy, productive lives. Sometimes people in extreme grief become angry, abuse drugs and alcohol, or even take their own lives. It doesn't have to be this way. Sadness when someone leaves our lives is normal. Intense grief need not be. If you are a Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or Jew there is plenty of support for the afterlife in the holy books and teachings of your faith. All combined, these religions encompass the spiritual beliefs of most of the people on Earth. 

If you Believe, grief is not for you - emotional peace and happiness is. Defeat your grief now.

#1 New York Times best-seller with more than 11 million copies sold and Amazon’s #17 best-selling book of all time. Heaven Is for Real was the best-selling non-fiction book of 2011 as reported by Nielsen’s Bookscan, and was developed as a major motion picture by Sony in 2014.

“Do you remember the hospital, Colton?” Sonja said. “Yes, mommy, I remember,” he said. “That’s where the angels sang to me.”

When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

Colton, not yet four years old, told his parents he left his body during the surgery–and authenticated that claim by describing exactly what his parents were doing in another part of the hospital while he was being operated on. He talked of visiting heaven and relayed stories told to him by people he met there whom he had never met in life, sharing events that happened even before he was born. He also astonished his parents with descriptions and obscure details about heaven that matched the Bible exactly, though he had not yet learned to read.

With disarming innocence and the plainspoken boldness of a child, Colton tells of meeting long-departed family members. He describes Jesus, the angels, how “really, really big” God is, and how much God loves us. Retold by his father, but using Colton’s uniquely simple words, Heaven Is for Real offers a glimpse of the world that awaits us, where as Colton says, “Nobody is old and nobody wears glasses.”

Heaven Is for Real will forever change the way you think of eternity, offering the chance to see, and believe, like a child.
