Product Description

Nine Days in Heaven
relates the vision of twenty-five-year-old Marietta Davis more than 150 years ago, where she was shown the beauties of heaven and the horrors of hell. Told in modern language, the book contains poignant quotes from the original vision, as well as biblical teaching points and testimonials from individuals whose lives have been impacted with this vision during the past 150 years. Pull-out quotes from the original vision are included, as are short testimonials from readers whose lives have been impacted by this vision. Teaching points and biblical comments appear throughout the chapters.

Since first publishing
Nine Days in Heaven
in 2006, we have received many responses from people inspired and encouraged by the story—e-mails, letters, calls, and conversations from men and women from all walks of life. Here are a few of them—all confirming what we knew already: this story must be told.

Thank you for such insight and wisdom with
Nine Days in Heaven
. It is profoundly written and easy to understand. I get overwhelmed reading it and at times have to put it down because it is so meaty. I need time to digest it and allow the Holy Spirit to reveal the power of it all to me. Anyway, thanks again for taking your time to keep this one going. It is a must-read!

I feel like I was Marietta in the story—as though I had gone through the whole thing. I am so grateful for this book; it is as though someone has given me a ruby. I so want to go to heaven. It has encouraged me to live a more godly life.

My daughter Alexandra was born premature. God let me hold, sing to, and comfort her for ninety minutes before she left.
Nine Days in Heaven
was a big help to me. It has been almost six years since my angel left, and when I start to get selfish again, I reread
Nine Days in Heaven
to remind me what her life is like now. She receives more love and nurturing than any earthly father could ever give her. Thank you, and God bless you.

About eleven months ago we lost our grandson unexpectedly; he was just a few days old. I want to sincerely thank both of you for taking the time and the painstaking effort to rewrite the book that was so thoughtfully given to you. I read
Nine Days in Heaven
within weeks of our loss and was greatly comforted, and I read the parts pertaining to the infant paradise over and over again. Thank you again for bringing this vision back into circulation. And thank you to my friends who followed the promptings of God to pass it on to me. I have since purchased several copies of this book and have given a copy to anyone who showed an interest in reading it.

I was absolutely and utterly inspired. I am not usually a voracious reader, but I could not put it down.

After trying to conceive for about eight years, a couple eventually had a baby boy. Tragically, when the boy was about seven years old, he died of cancer. The parents were unable to have more children and were devastated. The father contemplated suicide, thinking that in this way he would see his son again. Someone gave them a copy of this book, which helped them enormously, and the father was able to overcome his suicidal thoughts.

A lady came into our bookshop—her daughter had given birth to twins, and one of them died at birth. She asked me if I knew of any book that could help her daughter. I thought of your
Nine Days in Heaven
and told her I knew you and a little about your similar circumstances. Today she was in the shop again and told me how much the book had helped her daughter, and she thanked me for recommending it.

An Episcopalian minister in Melbourne, Australia, called us—he had just read the book. He said it was a staggering book, amazing, and was deeply convicted by the story. He said he taught Christian subjects in a private school and obtained a number of copies for his students.

Our son-in-law’s father—a Christian—died a few years ago. During his illness members of the family read the book. One was a daughter-in-law who was not a Christian. She was so impacted by it that she gave away a number of copies—even before she (eventually) became a Christian.

Many people have purchased multiple copies to give away. It has not been uncommon for them to purchase five or ten at a time. One lady obtained about forty copies over a year. An Orthodox Christian man bought twenty copies. He gave them to friends as his way of sharing the gospel. When he ran out, he contacted us to buy another one hundred copies.

A church in Singapore obtained a copy and printed and marketed it in Singapore. They also wrote a play based on the book, and during the presentation about seventy people became Christians as a result.
