The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven--now admitted to being a work of fiction.

The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven: A Remarkable Account of Miracles, Angels, and Life Beyond This WorldThe Boy Who Came Back from Heaven: A Remarkable Account of Miracles, Angels, and Life Beyond This World by Kevin Malarkey
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

Original review written Dec 26, 2013.

Good book about another little boy's trip to heaven. I already had read Heaven is for Real, so I was looking for some comparisons. There are similarities between the two, but this book focuses more on what the parents were going through. There is some description of heaven, which is similar to the other book.

Update Jan 16, 2015.

Alex Malarkey, the little boy that was in the accident, admitted that he made the whole story up. Tyndale has announced that they will stop selling the book. Sad, really. Alex said he just did it for the attention. Because of this, I have lowered my rating from 4 stars to 2. It may be a good fictional story, but it needed to be labeled as such. Here is a link to the article.
