4 First Lessons and Warnings

Important lessons Marietta is taught so that she may return to earth loaded with experiences and truths to

9 The Intellectual, the False Teacher, and the Heartless Worshipers

The vision exposes the plight of those in hell who fall into one of these three categories.

10 Escape From Hell and Lessons Learned

The angel transports Marietta back to heaven and reiterates the lessons about hell that she must also tell to

others when she returns to earth.

11 The Music of Heaven and the Separation

The angel teaches Marietta why God ordained that spirits of similar nature should be kept together in the

same place, with good and evil kept apart.

12 Infant Instruction—the Lost Man

Through several dramatizations, Marietta is shown how infants who die on earth are entrusted to the

angels who nurture them so that the spiritual understanding of the children will increase and the love in

them will be released.

13 The Bethlehem Story

The vision portrays the glory of the birth of Christ.

14 The Justice-Mercy Conflict

Marietta experiences the dilemma of those who are dying without hope because of the power and

authority of a mighty being named Justice. Then she meets the angel of Mercy, who reveals to her the

efficacy of the sacrifice of Jesus to bring mercy and hope to those doomed by Justice.

15 The Judas Betrayal

Mariette witnesses the betrayal of Judas and sees how the infants in heaven are taught the lessons of

Judas’ betrayal and what it meant to Jesus.

16 Jesus the Ransom Must Suffer

The vision continues with the consequences of Judas’s betrayal and the sins of mankind as Jesus is shown

to Marietta as the “Ransom” for sin.

The demonic presence of Apollyon appears to clamor for the crucifixion of Jesus. Justice and Mercy

discuss his threats, and Marietta is shown the great struggle of the crucifixion and how Justice and Mercy

together offer Jesus as a ransom to all.

18 The Dream of Pilate’s Wife

Judas begs the Sanhedrin to accept the return the thirty pieces of silver and flings them down, exclaiming,

“It’s the price of my Lord. It has cost me my peace forever!” Marietta is shown the meaning of his

betrayal, and it is revealed that he had the same depraved and unholy desires as the rest of mankind. The

Chief Guardian implores the angels to teach the children the lessons, and the children respond with a

commitment to go out as servants of goodness, wherever the Lord directs them. 

21 Calvary

The events of Calvary are shown from heaven’s perspective.

22 Death Defeated

Jesus defeats Satan and Apollyon and slumbers in victory.

23 He Is Risen!

Justice and Mercy show Marietta the lessons of the resurrection.

24 The Lost Man Rescued

Marietta witnesses the application of the full work of Christ to the life of a lost man dying in his sins.

25 Return to Earth

The angels, the children, and the inhabitants of heaven gather around Marietta and sing a hymn. Then she

stands before Jesus, who administers Communion to her. Placing an olive branch in her hand, He instructs

the angel guide to escort her back to earth.

    Contemporary update on a Christian classic

    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 woman herself. Her family had recently come to faith in the Lord, but she had had questions and doubts. Her journey erased those doubts for her, and she died seven months later in exactly the time and manner she had predicted after her trance. Her story was written down by John Loughran Scott and became well-known, but in time it lost its popularity because it was written in the flowery language of the day which by the twentieth century has become quite impenetrable. When the Princes lost two infants in less than seventeen months, a friend gave them a copy of the original book and it gave them great comfort. Dennis determined to update this powerful testimony for modern readers. This book is his labor of love. Marietta is whisked away first to the lower realms of Heaven, then down to Hell, then back up to Heaven where she witnesses how infants are raised in the Holy City. She is moved to tears several times by the depth of her own sinful nature, and she comes to understand the wisdom of God's decision to separate his children from those who refuse to follow him. Prince supports each chapter with several verses from Scripture giving added depth and meaning to Marietta's vision. The school for infants will offer comfort for anyone who has lost a child too soon. There is a great deal of wisdom here for readers who are familiar with the Bible and those not so familiar. Her description of Hell isn't that of pop culture with flames and demons with pitchforks; it is frighteningly believable and real. Pop culture's hell is easily parodied and ignored. Marietta's refuses to be denied and will create an indelible image in readers' minds. I would have liked to have read more about Heaven itself and less of the trial between Justine and Mercy, but I was still very moved by Marietta's vision. The Princes have given Christian readers a great gift in updating this classic for today's readers.

    Gives you hope and new information on babies in heaven!

    I would highly recommend purchasing and reading this book. I know it is one person's view of what she saw in heaven. But I have found in all the books I have been reading that they have a lot of common truths in common. One of the chapters is focusing on babies that die and go to heaven. The angels teach them what they need to know etc. This chapter was so interesting and so comforting. I have purchased this book 3 x's one for me. One for a family that lost their stillborn baby boy and another family who lost their 6 month old to SIDS. I know these families were going through a lot of pain, but the book gives them hope and comforting thoughts of their baby in heaven being cared for. I have reread this book several times and it gives me confidence and great hope for the eternal future.

    Nine Days in Heaven is AMAZING

    This book is life changing, insightful, amazing, there just isn't enough English words to describe this wonderful book! Although this is not a long book, 177 pages, I took my time reading it to enable my spirit and brain to absorb and digest the content. I will be reading this again, as I am sure I was unable to digest everything this book contains. I thank God for this being rewritten in todays language. I also thank All of the authors for writing this amazing experience! Please, do not pass up the opportunity of reading this book! It strengthened my wounded spirit ten fold!

    It is pure fantasy and not much else.

    Pure fiction. Doesn't line up with the word of God in many places. Dont bother to spend your money on it. The only thing worth looking at were the quotes from scripture.

    Nine Days In Heaven by Dennis and Nolene Prince

    It was the summer of 1848. Marietta Davis was a twenty-four year old, young woman, living in Berlin, New York with her mother and sisters. She attended church with her family, who was active in the congregation. But Marietta had doubts. At times, she even wondered if it was possible to know God was real. There had been revival services at her church and Marietta was still unchanged. Seven months after the revival, Marietta fell into a trance that lasted nine days.

    This is a true story. Marietta David, while in a trace, had visions or glimpses of Heaven and Hell. Her account was first published in the Mountain Cove Journal. and then in a book titled Scenes Beyond The Grave. When she awoke, Marietta was a changed woman, and spent the seven remaining months of her life sharing what she had seen.

    When the authors received this book, after the death of their four-month old first-born, and the stillbirth of their second child, they read it several times, with a dictionary close by. The difficult language in which it was written made it complex. This book captures the original story in the language of today without compromising the integrity of the original.

    Nine Days In Heaven by Dennis and Nolene Prince is detailed, but wholly supported by Scripture at the close of each chapter. The original testimonies of her family, publishers, physicians, and ministers add to the accuracy of this book. This book was a blessing to me, as one who believes that God in the Old and New Testaments is the God of today. This book is a glimpse into eternity and will comfort you if you have loved ones in Heaven, and encourage you to share its message with those who have not accepted Jesus' redeeming love.
