The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven by Kevin and Alex Malarkey

I received this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

After a tragic car accident left Alex with injuries so severe no one thought he could survive, God worked miracles that everyone in awe.  Alex was in a coma for months while family, friends, and complete strangers prayed for his recovery and healing. 

After coming out of the coma, Alex related a story to his father that his father initially had trouble comprehending.  It is only after Alex reported what had happened at the accident scene and later in the hospital that Kevin could grasp the immensity of his son's experience.  Alex told his father that he had visited Heaven and spoken with God.  But this is not the only contact Alex had with angels during his recovery.  He relates his experiences with these heavenly creatures in such intimate detail, the reader is left feeling as though the angels are in the room while he is reading the book.

The book kept me riveted to each page from the first page to the last.  I am a christian and reading Alex's description reinforced for me the fact that God does take care of His children and never leaves us.  I will (and have) recommended this family and friends.
