Here’s today’s dispatch from the crossroads of faith, media and culture.
A family’s story of faith. From The Hollywood Reporter: Greg Kinnear is in negotiations to star in Heaven Is for Real, Sony Pictures’ adaptation of the best-selling true-life book by Todd Burpo and Lynn Vincent…Burpo is the small-town pastor whose 4-year-old son purportedly died during surgery and went to heaven. The boy awoke with wild descriptions of where he had been, but neither the boy’s father nor friends and family believed him until he began to reveal details that he simply could not have known. The inspirational book became a sensation when it was released in 2010, hitting the New York Times best-seller charts in within three weeks. By April 2012, more than a million copies has been sold. Sony picked up the rights in May 2011.
The boy’s name, BTW, is Colton Burpo. Back in May of 2001, he and his parents related their inspiring story to Matt Lauer on Today.
