A popular book about a Christian boy describing his time in heaven after he fell into a coma has been pulled from the shelves. Alex Malarkey has admitted he made up the story inside The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven for attention. He had claimed to have went to heaven and even met Jesus Christ whilst in a coma after a car crash in 2004. But he has now said it was a lie and he made up the story in the 2010 book. In a blog post he said:
"I did not die. I did not go to heaven. People have profited from lies, and continue to. They should read the Bible, which is enough."
The publisher, Tyndale House, has said it will stop selling the book but has not made any further comment. LINK.
