Nine Days in Heaven by Dennis & Nolene Prince is the classic story of Marietta Davis' vision of Heaven updated with contemporary language for today's readers. In 1848 a twenty-five-year old woman named Marietta Davis lapsed into a coma or trance. Her family worried and prayed over her body for nine days, while doctors tried to determine the cause of her illness. When she awoke, Marietta spoke of a vision she had been given by God of Heaven and Hell for those here on earth, as well as for the...more

I found this book hard to put down. It was a great insight to heaven

Dennis & Nolene Prince's ability to embrace "The vision of Marietta Davis" in a profoundly understandable and awe striking rewritten version of the originally penned book: Scenes Beyond the Grave by John Loughran Scott, lend to the reader undeniable blessing's and benefit's that touch the soul.

Nine Days in Heaven is a beautiful testimony that further memorializes both Marietta and those who knew her in that time, with consistent clarity.

Such a great read that takes our inability to comprehe...more
Read for a friend who wanted my comments.

I have to admit a real bias against such books at the outset. Anyone who starts trying to describe heaven and hell in concrete terms loses credibility right for me because humans have no real frame of reference by which to attempt it, neither imagination, nor experience nor even the bible itself, which is actually pretty sparing with actual descriptions of the afterlife. And those who claim they do have experience always describe a world that is entirely...more

In 1848, Marietta Davis had a vision where she was taken to heaven. She was in a coma for nine days and when she woke up, she told what all she saw. She was taken to where small children are taught the things of God. “Real-to-life scenes are presented to the infants to teach them about past events or to illustrate important principles.” She watched as they saw Jesus birth, crucifixion and resurrection. Upon first arriving in heaven, Marietta meets a little boy. She’s able to see his parents on e...more
Enjoyed this book very much. It definately made me think more clearly about my relationship with Jesus and it excited me about Heaven. Can't wait to get there!

From back cover: Nine Days in Heaven brings the story of Marietta Davis to a new generation of readers. The nineteenth-century language of the original has been updated for readability, but the detailed portrayal of her vision remains intact.

This book is an update of an original called Scenes Beyond the Grave, which recounts the trance of Marietta Davis in 1848. The story was left intact, but the authors updated the language, making it easier to read. They succeeded in this, and the story was r...more
Nine Days in Heaven, is a true story account of what Marietta Davis saw while she was in a coma. She was shown heaven and hell, and was given a second chance at life. This actually took place in 1848, but these authors updated some of the language to more modern terms, so that today's generations could better understand it. I love that at the end of every chapter, there are Bible references to back up the vision, Marietta says she had. This account brings great hope to all Christians, and, possi...more

Deep, provoking one's spirit about the truths of heaven as revealed by Marietta Davis, a young woman granted a visit to heaven and also the dark places. I learned so much about heaven through this glimpse she has given to us here on earth! This book would be especially good for someone to read that has lost an infant or had a miscarriage as there is much devoted to how the babies are cared for by the angels in heaven. They are loved and adored so tenderly and taught all about the redeeming love...more
In 1848, twenty-five year old Marietta Davis suddenly fell into a medically unexplainable trance which lasted for nine days. When she came to, she told in detail of the vision of Heaven and Hell she had experienced while in the trance. Enlightening and inspirational, the portrayal ties into verses and teachings from the Bible. A large part of the book describes how children who have died are cherished and taught the lessons of God.

It was a good book for someone who is religiously inclined. There is a lot of reference to different Bible verses. I found it interesting but not sure I would recommend it.
Loved it, very good and recommend it to those struggling with the loss of children.

Only managed to read 55 pages. It was very badly written (despite the effort of the people rewriting it)!
