Rebecca Ruter Springer died, and then came back from the grave to write this book! This is the story of her sojourn from death to life -- from her deathbed to the life hereafter. This book recounts her experiences in heaven: learning of the New Life, growing in strength and faith, and having her Spirit renewed from glory to glory. In its time, this book caused a sensation throughout America and Europe. It still holds that power, and will challenge your concepts of death and heaven as it did the stuffy religious notions of the Nineteenth Century. This book is a powerful testimony of one who journeyed beyond the grave and came back -- to tell the world of the reality of Life.

My dear friend loaned me a copy of this book many years ago. I hoped that with "alibris " I would find it and was delighted that I now have even an extra copy to loan to friends.
I think the book is comforting to those with a frightening illness as well as to the bereaved.

"Intra Muros" is Heavenly
"Intra Muros" by Rebecca Ruter Springer is a comforting and optimistic telling of the author's visions of heaven experienced during a time of extreme illness. The fact that this book is so old (1898) and the style of language used serve to enhance the poetic and refined quality of the stories related. The author herself did not claim to fully understand the experiences she described, and did not fancy herself a Bible scholar, as she wrote in the book. But her joy at being reunited with loved ones lost, her descriptions of the dwellings she saw there and especially the moment when she met "the Beloved Master" were warm, peaceful and filled with sublime happiness.
For Christians of any persuasion, especially those grieving the loss of a loved one, "Intra Muros" is a hopeful and encouraging picture of the heaven we hope for, and a valuable addition to any library.
