The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven

In 2004, Kevin Malarkey and his six-year-old son, Alex, suffered an horrific car accident. The impact from the crash paralyzed Alex—and medically speaking, it was unlikely that he could survive. “I think Alex has gone to be with Jesus,” a friend told the stricken dad.

But two months later, Alex awoke from a coma with an incredible story to share. Of events at the accident scene and in the hospital while he was unconscious. Of the angels that took him through the gates of heaven itself. Of the unearthly music that sounded just terrible to a six-year-old. And, most amazing of all . . . Of meeting and talking to Jesus.

The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven is the true story of an ordinary boy’s most extraordinary journey. As you see heaven and earth through Alex’s eyes, you’ll come away with new insights on miracles, life beyond this world, and the power of a father’s love.

My thoughts...

This is an amazing story. It broke my heart to read how this little boy and his family suffered. I could feel Kevin's guilt over the accident and the heartbreak of both parents.

How wonderful God placed Christian people at the site, the paramedic, the man who got in the car and prayed. God knew this accident was going to happen and he prepared His people, those that prayed, served meals, repaired their house, etc. This is what Christianity is about, helping our brothers and sisters in time of need.

I believe Alex went to Heaven, I believe he saw angels in his room but one has to remember, he saw things through the eyes and mind of a 6 year old child and children see things a little differently than adults.

A fascinating book, I give it 5 stars.

I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
