Book Description

June 28 2011
In 2004, Kevin Malarkey and his six-year-old son, Alex, suffered a 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Splashes of heaven Aug. 2 2010
"The boy who came back from heaven" is the true story of Alex Malarkey who suffered a horrific car accident in 2004. Alex died at the crash but was revived and in a coma for over 2 months. His father, Kevin, writes this remarkable story with honesty, gut-wrenching emotion, and with a most extraordinary twist.
When six year old Alex awoke from the coma he began to share an incredible story. He begins to tell about the angels that took him into the gates of heaven. The reader begins to see heaven and earth through Alex's eyes and words.
Alex talks about being held by Jesus, he gives startling accounts of watching the medical procedures with Jesus, and how angels are involved in our day to day lives. There is a startling consistency to his accounts and Alex states that there are some things "I'm not allowed to tell you". This story is filled with trials, struggles and inspirational moments. Alex's faith, even though he is a quadriplegic, is astounding and moving.
Kevin writes "the years following Alex's return to our home, then, were about endings and beginnings - it was the end of Alex's coma and our dependence on the hospital. But it was also the beginning to a new and challenging kind of family life. Even more than this, it felt like the beginning of our awareness of another world, the powerful reality that continues to permeate our son's life."
This is a story of one family, their tragic moments, their struggles, the ups and downs, and the prayer of God's people and splashes of the glory of heaven that continues to touch many lives.
"You may be intrigued. You may be skeptical. You may be hungry to know more about what lies beyond life on earth." In the words of Alex when he was 6 years old, "God is amazing. I'm just a kid." This book points the reader to a God who loves them.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale House to review. All opinions are my own.

5.0 out of 5 stars It will really get you thinking Nov. 20 2010
In 2004, Kevin Malarkey and his six-year-old son, Alex, were in a horrible accident. No one thought Alex would live. But two months later he woke up with an amazing story to share. He talks about events that took place at the scene of the accident and at the hospital--he was unconscious in both places. He says Jesus was with him, or one if his angels, telling him that everything would be okay.

This is an amazing story. I wanted to read it because it was real. I read a lot of fiction, but stories like these excite me. They validate my faith, which is always the coolest thing. My favorite parts of the book were Alex's parts. The book is mostly written from Dad's point of view. He explains what happened. The accident, going to the hospital, waiting, talking with his wife, the doctors, pastors, and friends. But Alex's words are interspersed, telling us where he was and what he was doing while everyone else was waiting. It's fascinating. I also enjoyed seeing the stories of other people--people who felt called to pray for Alex and later shared their story with his parents. God works in amazing ways. Sometimes I think we get so caught up in life, we think we know how God works. I don't think we have a clue just how much God is at work in ways we'll never see until Heaven.

Ever since I read Frank Peretti's This Present Darkness, I was changed. I believe he's on to something the way he depicts angles and demons in his novel. But that's just a story. Frank made it up. But Alex's life is real. He talked with these angels, and he didn't like it when the bad ones came around. Looking to be inspired? Read this story. It will really get you thinking.

3.0 out of 5 stars if you are a Christian Jan. 17 2012
By mocha
This is not a great book, but it's a fairly good one -- if you are Christian. If you do not have a Christian background or beliefs, this book will not appeal to the same extent. I do have a Christian background, but would consider myself spiritual rather than religious. God and Jesus are mentioned constantly in the book, and the traditional way of getting to God/Heaven is through Jesus (and no other). This shuts out millions of people. What I liked most about the book was the information about angels, a personal interest of mine. I would recommend this book to active Christians as it will substantiate their beliefs, and may give them a few concepts to ponder that might not be introduced in church. For non-believers, this book would be a supernatural tale that is claiming to be non-fiction. It's not an entirely "enjoyable" book in that there is nothing remarkable about the writing style which is quite simplistic, but it's easy to read in one or two sittings. I tend to think of this story as a reverie rather than a revelation. I believe a short story format would have been more appropriate in this case as the "book" has a sense of being drawn out for no important purpose. The editing process seems to have been lacking. I doubt that I would read this book again.

A fabulous account of a young boy's trip to heaven during a traffic accident that leaves him disabled.However, despite all his trials and tribulations, he remains in high spirits due to the hope he gets from God. An astounding, revealing insight into what awaits us in heaven ,as well as a celebration of the power of prayer and the human spirit.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book. Feb. 16 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I found the book a good read. It has a spiritual quality that was unique.
The out look was different, maybe because it's from a child's perspective.
Gave a copy for a gift.
