Book Review: The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven

Another book review on a journey to heaven. This one is by Kevin and Alex Malarkey.

"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." (Amazon)

Dawn's Recommendation: 4 of 5 Stars

What I liked: The inspirational story. The description of angels, devil, and demons. The solid and growing faith of the Malarkey family and their willingness to praise God and share Him throughout the book. The short, labeled sections, which make this a great book for reading when you only have spare minutes here and there.

What I didn't like: I had bought a used copy and someone tore out three pages in the center, which look to have had photos on them. Rats!  

I enjoyed the constant mention of God and faith, but if my faith were not that strong, the book may come across as preachy and be a turn off for some.
