More than 150 years
ago, 25-year-old Marietta Davis had a vision of heaven. Davis fell into a trance, and when she
awoke, she said that God took her to heaven for nine days, which become the
talk of her community in upstate New York as well as continuing through
In Nine Days in
Heaven, Davis’ account is retold in modern language and includes biblical
teaching points and testimonials of those who have been impacted by this
supernatural story. Dennis and Nolene
Prince discovered the chronicle of Davis’ vision after experiencing the
traumatic loss of their two newborn children and being given a copy of the
narrative. The Princes found comfort in the remarkable account of the afterlife
and wanted others to hear the story as well.
book is an attempt to capture the original story in the language of today. In
making this rewrite, every effort has been made to preserve the original intent
of the story,” states Dennis Prince. “The reader will find some sections a little
formal, a hangover from the original language that was difficult to erase
completely without compromising the integrity of the original. In spite of
this, the story retains its interest and fascination.”
As the Princes began
to retell Davis’ story for readers, they found power in the 150-year-old story.
Davis’ story will persuade readers of heaven’s reality, heighten the
seriousness about spiritual realities for some, and potentially lead many
people to give their lives to God.
“Some find it
strange and hard to believe. Thousands have been inspired and challenged. But everyone should read it—and with an open
mind. As the original publisher raved in the conservative language of 150 years
ago, ‘to read it is to be benefited,’” says Prince.
