Kevins son, Alex Malarkey (12), is the youngest person in the world to have the Christopher Reeve Surgery allowing him to breathe without a ventilator. He can stand in a supportive frame for an hour at a time and, with the help of a special harness, can walk on a treadmill while helpers move his legs. Alex is an avid Steelers fan. He believes he will walk again someday.
Author Q & A
A: Yes. They make New York City seem small! The skyline is awesome.
Q: What was your body like in Heaven?
A: I never really paid attention to my body. I never looked down or thought about myself. I was too in awe of everything else. I know that I could walk in Heaven, though.
Q: What do you think about the fact that God told Paul not to talk about what he saw in Heaven, but He told John to share about his visit?
A: I dont feel so weird when I think about that. Im a mixture of the two. Some things I can say and some things I cant.
Q: What is worship like in Heaven?
A: Its always happening. The angels have sessions of praising God. They go to His throne at certain times. I have seen the elders bowing down and saying holy, holy, holy. But the most awesome part is the angels behind the elders. There are more than you can count.
Q: What people have you seen in Heaven?
A: I have seen people from the Bible. I cannot say anything else.
Q: Is Heaven a physical place?
A: How could I have been there if it wasnt?
Q: What would you tell people about spiritual warfare?
A: I would only have three main points. (1) Satan is a loser, and he has already lost; (2) demons are trying to mess with people nonstop; (3) we need Jesus in our hearts to fight the demons.
Q: What would you say to someone who is troubled or anxious?
A: If they are, I would just say, Ask God for help.
Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5The Boy Who Came Back From HeavenAugust 8, 2014Amy CVAAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The Boy Who Came From Heaven is full of miracles. Alex is an amazing little boy. It is hard not be inspired by his story. My heart ache for his dad, Kevin. He struggled so much dealing with the car accident and the aftermath. The guilt, the financial troubles, stress, and marital strain. But still he kept his faith for his little boy. I think this true story is worth a read. I hope one day I read about Alex when he's older and if he still sees angels.
4 1/2 stars.
eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Phenomenal Depiction of Heaven, FascinatingAugust 6, 2014eb7bibliophileHigh Desert WestAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As Kevin, the author, said, he is relating things as they happened, and it is up to us to decide whether to believe it and take it to heart. The initial description of the events sent my heart into my throat; the miracles took my breath away. This is an amazing account, and all the credit belongs to God. I love that everything lines up with the Scriptures. Kevin emphasizes that he does not know for sure about some things, and not trying to convince us, but this is from a childs perspective. He admits he is not strong, nor does he have unflagging faith, but God can do anything. The outpouring of love and giving from so many is deeply inspiring.
Alexs experiences ring true. They remind me of what my mother told me after she had nearly died. I told her about a book I had read regarding someone who said he saw heaven, and she said its not like that. She said it cannot be described; and she didnt want to leave. She left it like that. Nothing Alex said contradicts her. This is very well written and the message is clear and uplifting.
reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: female3 Stars Out Of 5To heaven and backJuly 21, 2014reliWIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 3Value: 3Meets Expectations: 2I can tend to be a little skeptical of otherworldly experiences, but when I hear it from the words of a child, I am much more open to the idea. A child is not going to be capable of making up these kinds of images and keeping his story straight for month after month after month. This story was impressive to me--probably more so because Alex wasn't miraculously healed of his paralysis and while his family continues to believe he will be fully healed in this life, they have learned to adapt and adjust to the circumstances they are in. It is impressive the courage exhibited by Alex through the whole journey. While the writing style isn't top notch in my opinion, the story is defintely amazing. May God receive the glory through it all.
jsrn184 Stars Out Of 5To heaven and back!July 9, 2014jsrn18Powerful recollection of a boy and his family's story after going through a horrible accident. With so many individuals writing books about their experiences in heaven its hard to know which ones or if any are true. I truely believe in heaven and that children have a great understanding of what heaven is like based on stories they are told but the detail in this book is remarkable. Great viewpoints from both Alex and his father Kevin.
KarenNorfolk, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A good story, but flawed theologyJune 29, 2014KarenNorfolk, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 3The boy who came back from heaven tells the story of 6-year-old Alex Malarkey, who after being in a horrific car crash and in a coma for two months, awoke with an incredible story of his travels to heaven. He tells of seeing the accident scene from above, being escorted to Heaven by angels, and meeting and talking with Jesus.
This is a delightful tale. One in which a family experiences unbelievable stressors and maintains faith that grows throughout. Written mostly by father Kevin Malarkey it's brutally honest, relating the difficulties transparently, and not trying to paint it with an unbelievably rosy brush. The faith message shines throughout, and you can't help but feel drawn closer to God.
However, we need to remember that the ultimate authority in matters of Heaven is not a little boy, but the word of God. Proverbs 30:4 asks, "Who has gone up to heaven and come down?" and John 3:13 answers, "No one has gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven--the Son of Man." Alex's recollections can only be dreams and/or visions, not actual trips to Heaven. The authors state, "In the end if what we see, hear or read strains credibility, we must choose whether to believe. It's not my job to convince you." I believe Alex experienced dreams and visions of Heaven, and I am grateful that he shared them. If we have questions about the veracity of Heaven, however, we should look to the ultimate authority, The Bible.
