This book is absolute bullshit.

God-awful bullshit.

Yet another reason for Christians to look like that weird kid down the street who put ants on his tongue and always smelled like congealed sweat.

Yet another piece of "theological" fiction that is grounded in nothing but the imagination of the (most likely) quite clinically disturbed author.

"Hmmm...I wonder what will sell? I will never make any money as a legitimate author, so howabout I write Christian fiction? That's it!!!!"

Foreword:

This book shook me to the very core of my being. Regardless of what you may think I believe this story speaks truth. I beg all who do not have Christ in their lives to read this with an open mind praying to the god so that they can read this with an open mind and an open heart. God gave us such a great gift but if we just to ignore or worse reject or turn from this gift and for lack of a better term spit in gods face he will leave you to your fate. I pray for all who read this review wh

If Dante's Inferno and a Tom and Jerry cartoon had a baby, it would be this book. As it just so happens, the hell the author claims to have experienced matches the generic version of hell often portrayed in popular culture complete with fire and brimstone, wailing spirits encased in living skeletons, and cackling demons armed with pointy sticks. So what's being revealed? Don't most Christians already believe this stuff, including the stuff that doesn't even have any sort of biblical precedent? A ...more

What a challenge this book was. Of course the biggest part of this was deciding whether to spend $6.00 at Starbucks or on a used copy of this babble?! I went with the babble and got my money's worth in pure entertainment value.

I attempted to trust/critique this book from a purely theological stance. The ultimate test for me (A Christian) was that it has to match the Biblical scriptures perfectly. Honestly it didn't even make it past the 1st page. And by 1st page I mean the copywrite information

I am a devout, inerrancy-affirming evangelical Christian, and I do not believe this for on moment.

It's a tricky thing when people claim to have these visions. Either they are true, or they are not. And if they are not, what then? If the person is a liar, then they are grievously sinning against the Holy Spirit (or may not even be genuine believers, if they take that attitude towards God's Word). If they are seeing false visions, that is also quite problematic. Given that her visions occurred ove

I went to my sister's Pentecostal church to attend her wedding last year in August. As I drove the six hour ride home I thought of this book and the author. I imagined slanderous accusations against her and a fear came over me. It remained on me in such intensity I finally told God "I'm sorry." I wanted to read this to see what she wrote. I'm no theologian, but the book blessed me. I feel strengthened and encouraged, because it covers more than just her visions of hell. Some I didn't understand. ...more

Wow! This novel was very vivid and frightening to the core. The reason was because Baxter has given a description of Hell based on scripture. This book literally arrested my attention. She describes how pastors who have led people astray or that were hypocrites were there in the Lake of Fire. She described how many were screaming in indescrible pain. There were many parts where I could actually see and hear what was happening based upon the words that she took her time and painted. She told abou ...more

Awakening! Frightening! Gripping! - none of these words even come close to describing Mary Baxter's journey into The Abyss. This book will surely leave readers - including Atheist ones - crying out for the Great Proprietor! I, of course, am a firm believer in the literal interpretation of Hell. In the Bible Job 18:15, it says, "Brimstone shall be scattered upon his habitation" - Job is the oldest book in the Bible, written over 3,000 years ago, and yet Job knew what science wouldn't know for yea ...more

In the book “A Divine Revelation of Hell,” author Mary K. Baxter describes her personal journey through Hell as told in her own words. This compelling story describes Mary Baxter’s journey through Hell as she is called upon from Jesus to share with the world her “visions.” Over a period of thirty days Mary is shown the consequences of people who sin on Earth and do not repentant their sins.

Throughout the book the author uses great detail to grab the attention of the reader. In one part of the b

Oh my gosh. I could not put this one down and read it all in 2 days. You really feel like you are there and it is terrifying to think of loved ones (anyone for that matter) going to such an awful place. The attitudes of the souls in hell fascinated me the most because they didn't believe they should be there. This book made me want to forgive anybody anything and to stay sweet to all humankind always! It is also the most specific book on hell geographically I have ever read. She describes the di ...more

I did not put this book down until the last page. I have heard many people discuss this book, and how there life changed after reading it. I must say, it made me make more changes in my life, for when the world ends, I want to walks the streets of gold and not the streets of fire.

I met her personally some years ago she was a guest at one of my old churches conventions, she is a very spiritual and delightful woman. I truly enjoyed meeting her as well as hearing her testimonies as to how God took her to heaven and hell and back.

Why do my students seem to mostly recommend crazy bad religious books to me? I must give the impression that I'm headed to hell.

I just cannot take books like this seriously. This falls into the same camp as 23 Minutes in Hell, in that it could easily be a hastily written, 'spiritually' inspired cash grab. These are my own views and subjective opinion, and each to their own.

Our spiritual journeys are very personal affairs, and can, and will, be influenced in a variety of ways over the course of our lives. Baxter may have actually had a divine revelation of hell, and then heaven, and then the spiritual realm, and then of s

I am amazed how many Christians actually buy into this awful, predictable, unverified, unimaginative rip-off of both Milton and Dante.
So what if I told you Jesus came to me and wisked me away to Hell, and that Hell is actually in another dimension? What would be the difference in mine to Baxter's version, as far as confirmation is concerned? NOTHING. You are going to take her word on this, why!?!?!

Let me shed some light on a few things; She says Hell is in the center of the Earth. Do you believe

Book was recommended by a friend when I was first saved in 2000. 15 years later I question the authenticity of it based on my understanding of the bible to the point I call this book fake. The basis for it is stated in the bible explaining when we die we sleep until called. (1 Thessalonians) From there we face our final judgements at the great throne. From there we are either in the book of life or cast into the Lake of Fire. it is more detailed than this but above is the gist. would not recomme ...more

Mary K Baxter claims that in 1976, Jesus appeared to her and took her on a guided tour of hell. The account she gives is terrifying. She tells of a man who was a preacher on earth that ended up in hell, presumably for preaching the prosperity gospel. Jesus is portrayed as a loving yet holy God, so holy that he will not tolerate any amount of sin. To many Christians, this Jesus will be incompatible with what they are used to or what their pastor has taught them. However, Mary K Baxter's Jesus is ...more

Just because you don't believe in it doesn't mean it doesn't exist, it only means YOU don't believe it doesn't exist. If Hell is true then it would be exactly like Baxter pictured the horrible, unimaginable pit of fire as he uses the scriptures to staff his descriptions. If hell is not true we don't have anything to lose when we die, if hell is true we have verything to lose when we die. "Is the risk of being ignorent worth the sacriice?"

This is an excellent book. I was scared to start reading it, but I was somehow kept at peace throughout. It is a wake up call as many people there have heard the gospel and did not choose God, and some knew His salvation btu walked away or let their flesh rule more than His spirit... Wow. Anyway, I would definetly recommend this and may read it again :)

Absolutely incredible!!! In your face reality of what you face if you are not obedient in God's will. If you are at a place in your life where you are stuggling with God's will, it will literally scare the hell out of you. If you are walking with Jesus, it will cause you to walk closer, and make you prayerful for those who aren't.

I've never read a book quite like this. This woman, Mary K. Baxter claims that in the late 70's, Jesus showed her around Hell over a 40 day period with the express intention of having her record her experience in a book to be a warning to the world. What is troubling to me is that she really believes this happened and that her experience was 100% real. So, that leaves only one of 3 options to be the case: 1. She is completely delusional and is in serious need of psychiatric attention; 2. She is ...more

This isn't for the FAINT at heart. As with most INTENDED writings, this one opens up one's sanctified imagination immediately, as this Author takes you through her PERSONAL experience in a POWERFULLY Divine setting. I purchased this book more than 30 years ago (as it was stolen from my possession with the hopes that the thief took the time to read it). I'm glad that I recently had the opportunity to read this again with an even broader perspective, based on my own personal thought and experience ...more

Had to get a drink of water after reading this book. Some parts if the book I don't believe like pg. 63 Hell is shaped like a human body lying in the center of the earth. The body is lying n her back, with both arms and legs stretched out. When it comes to that. I doubt it. A lot of the others might be true. But I do believe in the Bible than the way it is explained in the book. It was entertaining though.

This book was okay. It is not appropriate for someone who doesn't believe in god. It is a religious book to better yourself to make it into heaven. If you are looking for a book to change your life, this will work. Although it is not a horror, it will scare you. It is a true story, which makes it worse. If you don't believe in god, this will make you a believer.
