CeCe McGhee talks to Bishop T.D. Jakes about the new movie he produced titled, “Heaven Is For Real.” The movie is based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book of the same name, based on the true story of a small-town father who must find the courage and conviction to share his son’s extraordinary, life-changing experience with the world.
The film stars Academy Award® nominee and Emmy® award winning actor Greg Kinnear as Todd Burpo and co-stars Kelly Reilly as Sonja Burpo, the real-life couple whose son Colton (newcomer Connor Corum) claims to have visited Heaven during a near death experience. Colton recounts the details of his amazing journey with childlike innocence and speaks matter-of-factly about things that happened before his birth… things he couldn’t possibly know. Todd and his family are then challenged to examine the meaning from this remarkable event.
Listen below as Bishop T.D. Jakes talks about the movie and his new book, “Instinct: The Power to Unleash Your Inborn Drive” which will be released May 6.
