Nine Days in Heaven Author:Dennis and Noleen Prince More than 150 years ago, in upstate New York, twenty-five-year-old Marietta Davis had stubbornly resisted the winds of revival that were blowing through her town. That is until seven months later, when she fell into a trance and was shown the beauties of heaven and the horrors of hell. The experience transformed the remainder of the young wom... more »an's life and sobered all who heard her story.
Seven months after the vision--at the time and in the manner she had predicted--Marietta died. But before her homegoing, she wrote a vivid portrayal of her experience that remained in print one hundred years after her death. Now her story is available for a new generation of readers. The nineteenth-century language of the original edition has been updated for readability, but the detailed depiction of her vision remains untouched.
Journey with Marietta to the shimmering reaches of paradise, where the redeemed enjoy the beauties of the new creation.
Observe children who died on earth as they are taught the mysteries of God in infants' heaven.
Grieve at the plight of the lost as they suffer the tortures of hell and the wages of their own sin.
Supported by voluminous biblical references and practical observations, Nine Days in Heaven is more than the fanciful concoction of a young woman's imagination. It is a travel-guide for the life to come, leaving the sinner sobbered and the saint awestruck.« less
