The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven Recants Story


iRumors have gone viral on the Web alleging that Alex Malarkey, co-author of "The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven," has recanted his story. Determination: Real

Boy who came backAccording to a January 16, 2015 article by the Washington Post, Alex Malarkey has recanted his account of his out of body experience and Tyndale Publishing has pulled the book he co-wrote with his father from the shelves.

Alex Malarkey released a written statement that 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.”

The Washington Post reported that Malarkey's publisher, Tyndale House, issued a statement that said, “We are saddened to learn that Alex Malarkey, co-author of ‘The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven,’ 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.”
