Do God and Heaven exist? That’s a question many would like to know the answer to and some even claim having it. Stories about near-death experiences make it to bookstore shelves and awe their readers. But sometimes one finds out they are as fictional as fantasy novels. A boy who stated he died and went to paradise in a top rated book is currently claming he invented the whole story.
Almost five years after “The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven” got smash hit records, distributer Tyndale House reported Thursday that it is taking the book off racks after Alex Malarkey withdrew his claim.
Malarkey declared he went to paradise after two months in a state of coma. He was hospitalized following a car collision when he was six years of age in 2004. Malarkey, now an adolescent, send a public statement to Christian book retailers on the site Pulpit and Pen withdrawing the what he upheld in the book.
According to his letter he neither died nor went to Heaven, but he made the whole thing up to get attention. Even more, he admitted to have never read the Bible prior to the crash or when he told the story. However, he also added that people always take advantage of lies instead of following the Bible which is the only wellspring of truth. He now considers that anything written by people can’t be faultless.
Malarkey was recorded as a co-writer of the book alongside his dad, Kevin. In April 2014 Alex’s mom, Beth, who is separated from his dad, wrote in a blog entry that her son did not get any cash from the book’s sales. She commented that it is it is both baffling and agonizing to watch the book ‘The Boy who Came Back from Heaven’ to not just keep being bought, but also not being questioned.
The book is one of top best-sellers about and by the individuals who say they have gone to paradise and came back. The most famous is “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo, which was also made into a film. “The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven” crested at No. 46 on the rundown.
As indicated by the publisher’s depiction of the book, in 2004, Kevin Malarkey and his 6-year-old child, Alex had a traffic accident. The crash left Alex paralyzed – and therapeutically talking, it was farfetched that he could survive. But after two months, Alex arose from a coma with an unimaginable story. He had said that angles took him to the gates of heaven while unconscious.
