If you’ve been paying attention to the book world lately you have probably heard of the bestseller Heaven is for Real, about the little boy who supposedly paid a visit to Heaven during surgery.
We’ve had two customers come into our store this week looking for it.
I’m sure it is a very uplifting book but like other private revelations, we really have no way of verifying any of it. This is why we have had a policy since we opened of not carrying books about revelations or apparitions that either haven’t been officially approved or were revealed to people that haven’t been started on the process to canonization.
One of the great things about the Catholic Church is that there are official ways that revelations get vetted. If you don’t have a magisterium, then really anything goes.
It’s all part of our Good Faith. Guaranteed. policy.
