With nine albums to date, culminating with his most recent release, "Studio 10" (Blue Ruby Records, 2013), Taylor has toured extensively in the United States and Europe, appeared on "The Late Show with David Letterman," won folk music awards, and held songwriting workshops in the U.S., England and Wales.

Movie Review: In 'Heaven' there is no bier

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

"Is heaven a hope or real?"

Todd Burpo (Greg Kinnear) asks that question in the opening narration of "Heaven Is For Real," a touching tale of admittedly corny sentimentality that left me all blubbery and emotionally- moved.

Burpo is pastor of a nondenominational church in Imperial, Neb. The pastor's faith, as well as the beliefs of his wife, Sonja (Kelly Reilly), and the faith of his congregation are put to the test when the pastor's four-year-old son, Colton (Connor Corum), has a near-death experience.
