Rebecca Intervace Springer was 29 when the American Civil War began in 1861.When the war ended five years later, 620,000 soldiers and countless civilians died.It is not surprising, then, that death and heaven have been studied extensively over the next forty years in the United States.And it is in this spiritual climate that created Springer classic, “Intra Muros”, or as it is now generally known, “My dream of heavenRebecca was born in 1832, in Indianapolis, Indiana, the daughter of a Methodist pastor; she graduated from Wesleyan Colleges in 1850, and Methodist Christianity remained her spiritual homeIn 1859, two years before the Civil War, she married William Springer, who was to become a lawyer and Illinois member of the General AssemblyThey had a son, also called William, but Rebecca’s health was never good, and described by only one person as’weak’.In 1868, the couple went on a two-year European tour to improve their health, but they remained poor until their death.It was in the midst of poor health that his classic work was born.”Intra Muros” (Between the Walls) where My Dream of Heaven was written in 1898This was a vision given to her course of serious illness; and she was unconscious for a few days, as she received the vision – which, in the account, covers a period of several yearsOn reflection, she came to understand the short book as a series of fundamental truths about heaven, which offer readers both confidence that God had prepared a place for them; and that in the meantime there was a wonderful reunion with the relatives who preceded themSpringer did not confer the status of “prophecy” on his work, but rather as comfortAs she says, she wrote the book with “the hope that he can comfort and lift some people who read, even as he did, and that his memory will never do, for meI submit the imperfect sketch of a perfect vision’
