About this title

Synopsis:

Rebecca Ruter Springer is part of a rich tradition of female Christian mystics. In Intra Muros she lays out her personal revelation on the nature and content of a Christian heaven. Like Margery Kempe and Julian of Norwich before her, she brings an emotional dynamic to her faith. Whilst this precious work is considered non canonical by some, all are moved by her personal description of the way in which Jesus greets the children in Heaven.

Those who doubt her revelation will leave these pages as dog eared and the spine of this book as cracked and worn as those who take Springer at her very eloquent word. The picture she paints of beautiful, serene gardens and warm family homes filled with love can make you homesick for a place you have never been and that none other can return to us and speak of.

The reader will appreciate the subtle reference to other ideas about heaven, metaphors about wealth and splendour of a more decadent kind but Springer says it best in her own words

"I often think how we were taught to believe that heaven was where we would wear crowns of gold and stand with harps always in our hands! Our crowns of gold are the halos His blessed presence casts about us; and we do not need harps to accentuate our songs of praise. We do see the crowns, and we do hear the angelic harps, when and as God wills it, but our best worship is to do his blessed will".

Product Description:

Excerpt from Intra Muros I felt that he was right, said in a few words, and we started slowly up the street. He had drawn my hand within his arm, and endeavored to interest me, as we walked. But my heart clung to the dear ones whom I felt I was not to see again on earth, and several times I stopped and looked wistfully back the way we had come. He was very patient and gentle with me, waiting always till I was ready to proceed again; but at last my hesitation became so great that he said pleasantly: "You are so weak I think I had better carry you;" and without waiting for a reply, he stooped and lifted me in his arms, as though I had been a little child; and, like a child, I yielded, resting my head upon his shoulder, and laying my arm about his neck. I felt so safe, so content, to be thus in his care. It seemed so sweet, after the long, lonely struggle, to have some one assume the responsibility of caring thus tenderly for me. He walked on with firm, swift steps, and I think I must have slept; for the next I knew, I was sitting in a sheltered nook, made by flowering shrubs, upon the softest and most beautiful turf of grass, thickly studded with fragrant flowers, many of them the flowers I had known and loved on earth. I remember noticing heliotrope, violets, lilies of the valley, and mignonette, with many others of like nature wholly unfamiliar to me.
