    Old news. Don't know why they pulled the book though. Usually that doesn't happen unless it's non-fiction. And since this book was fiction...

    ...Right? ...a book about going to Heaven? ...that the Christian god is the right god, that the Christian religion is the only 'true' religion? ...that this child experienced something for which there is no evidence whatsoever supporting his claim, and a magnitude of scientific research strongly arguing the point that it would have been nothing more than a hallucination if he did actually claim to experience such a thing?

    So yeah, since the book is fiction, I don't get why they're pulling it.

    When the supposed co-author is 1) Not receiving any profits and 2)when the supposed autobiography (that is the gimmick from the publisher) is untrue.

    It sounds like the divorced father is collecting all the royalties. Liars and thieves. Such good Christians!!!
