"Gullible" or "Dumb," take your pick. A Christian publisher will stop selling “The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven” now that the young subject paralyzed in a car crash says the story of going to heaven is not true. Tyndale House told both NPR and the Washington Post that it will withdraw the best-selling 2010 book by Alex Malarkey and his father, Kevin Malarkey. The publisher made the decision after Alex wrote an “open letter” to the retailer LifeWay that said, “I did not die. I did not go to Heaven.” It was posted on the Pulpit and Pen website. The Malarkey book is one of a spate of best-sellers about and by those who say they have gone to heaven and returned. The best-known is “Heaven is for Real” by Todd Burpo, a No. 1 USA TODAY best-seller which was turned into a movie. http://www.freep.com/story/news/nation/2015/01/16/boy-came-back-heaven-alex-malarkey/21863537/ it's hard to believe this isn't an Onion spoof.
