Alex Malarkey‘s 20th birthday. (Happy birthday, Alex.) And if you’re not familiar with his name, you may be familiar with his story.
About eight years ago, he was listed as the co-author of a book called The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven.
The title speaks for itself, but here’s the description of the book as published by Tyndale House:
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.
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.
