“The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven” by Kevin Malarkey and his son Alex, who co-authored the book, has been recalled. Tyndale House, a major Christian publisher, has announced that it has stopped selling the book, reports from Washington Post.

The Christian publisher released a statement on Friday afternoon, stating “We are saddened to learn that Alex Malarkey, co-author of ‘The Boy Who Came Back From Heave’, is now saying that he made up the story of dying and going to heaven. Given this information, we are taking the book out of print.”
The best-selling book “The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven” was recalled after the 16-year-old Alex Malarkey posted online an open letter to reveal that the story in the book was just made up.

He said he created the story containing his 2010 memoir because he thought it would give him 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,” he wrote in his open letter published at Pulpit and Pen website.

Alex started the letter with, “Please forgive the brevity, but because of my limitations I have to keep this short.”

Then the next one-line paragraph clearly retracted the story written in the book, “I did not die. I did not go to Heaven.”

“The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven” first published in 2010 recounted the story of Alex, describing his experience after a car accident when he was only 6 years old. He lay in coma for 2 months; his injuries left him paralyzed. But the main story that made the book a best-selling one is the spiritual account that Alex encountered, telling about “miracles, angels, and life beyond This World”.
