The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven

The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven is a true story by father and son Kevin & Alex Malarkey.

It is the story of a tragic car accident that left Alex paralyzed when he was just 6 years old. In fact, the odds weren't great that he would even survive. But a couple of months later Alex woke up from his coma with an amazing story to tell. He was able to describe events that happened while he was unconscious and of what he witnessed at the accident scene after being flown away in a medevac helicopter. Alex shares his experiences and journey of going to Heaven and back; of angels, and of meeting Jesus.

It was interesting to read of Alex's experiences, his relationship with and faith in God, his perseverance and will to live ... even though he says he is eager to get back to Heaven. The community greatly surrounded this family with prayers, support and help when they went through such trying times.

I did find the book to be redundant at times; I know the book is about faith and Alex's accounts of 'miracles, angels, and life beyond this world,' but I felt that the point was made too often. I also wish that the book contained more of Alex's story and not so much of the father's account. Overall it was an easy, and heart-warming read.

Here is a trailer for the book.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Blog Network for this review; if you'd like to read the book please leave a comment and I'll send the copy to someone chosen via Random.org.

Have you read Heaven is for Real?

It's sort of the same idea and I just LOVE IT. We are buying the kid's version for our kids this Christmas.
