The real boy in ‘Boy Who Came Back From Heaven’ book goes after publisher


The book titled "Boy Who Came Back From Heaven", which first came out in 2010 became best-seller; A publication which described a 6-year old boy's so called spiritual journey while in the state of a coma due to a car accident.

Boy Who Came Back From Heaven

The book was published by Tyndale House, a major Christian publisher founded in 1962 and is based in Carol Stream, Illinois.

Bewildered on how things got into where they are now, the parents of Alex Malarkey lament that their son's name and identity are being used without any proper consent.

"Alex’s name and identity are being used against his wishes…. How can this be going on???", Alex's mother Beth Malarkey said.

Alex himself disavowed his previous testimony about life after death. He even sent an open letter to Christian bookstores, insisting he did not actually die. He did not even go to heaven.
I did not die. I did not go to Heaven.
Alex is still in the state of dealing with the effects of the injuries he sustained during his accident. He still feels it difficult to express himself conveniently. He thus asked forgiveness for what he had previously said.
Please forgive the brevity, but because of my limitations I have to keep this short…. I said I went to heaven because I thought it would get me attention. When I made the claims that I did, I had never read the Bible. People have profited from lies, and continue to. They should read the Bible, which is enough. The Bible is the only source of truth. Anything written by man cannot be infallible.
Because of the growing controversy over the boy's identity issue and that of the publisher's profits, Tyndale House decided to stop selling the book. "Tyndale has decided to take the book and related ancillary products out of print.", said Todd Starowitz, Tyndale's public relations director.
