Read, Re-Read, Study, Reference to, and Share... Feb 04, 2007
By Sherrie Craig
Denver is an inspired teacher, gathering centuries of scripture references and prophesies that verify Christ will come to man during his mortal life in the flesh, and that He has done and does so today as in ancient times. This book will give you fresh resolve to live more righteously as God wants you to, to be entitled to ALL of His blessings He offers to all men. I feel this is written as a guide for me/us to keep afresh what we know, and to reach deeper in seeking further knowledge of God's will for me/us personally. I am certain as you read you will have a great desire to follow our Savior with increased obedience to His ways, be more humble, live more Holy, and with the hope to qualify at some time during your mortal life for an audience with Jesus Christ. It is one to read, re-read, reference to often, and study, then teach what you learn here.... Thank you Denver for sharing what you have learned with me. This reading has been a spiritual feast for me.

Second Comforter - A Powerful, Spiritual, LDS "Must Read" Jan 06, 2007
By J. Linton
I have studied these doctrines for over 20 years; but have never been presented with such compelling truths, using clear scriptural evidence, and using a direct, honest, and forward method. This book is an easy and compelling read. I would consider it a "must read" if you are LDS and driven to learn all you can about the Savior. I must confess that reading this book has changed the outlook on my life and my relationship with God. Denver offers a clear method to become close to god using scriptural references in a simple "How To" format.

Refreshing and Motivating Jun 15, 2006
As a member of the LDS faith I have found this to be a read that is refreshingly honest and it has motivated me to action. As a member of the faith I would be considered in good standing. I do all that I should do and even more whenever opportunity permites, which is most of the time. I have found through the reading of this book a need to push myself to a higher spiritual leave by being anxiuosly engaged in a renewed internal stuggle to draw myself closer to God. I have done all the right things in life and it has become more of a ritual / rotten, which is not a bad thing, it just has not been moving me forward spiritually, this book has awaken me to this and give me a renewed desire to draw on that which has alway been there. Thank you Brother Snuffer for giving me a renewed need for so much more, even the hope of an audience.

Not to be read lightly Jan 09, 2007
By Tom Knowlton
What Brother Snuffer is talking about in his book is one of THE greatest blessings we can receive during our mortal sojourn, according to a talk by Elder McConkie on "The Ten Blessings of the Priesthood"
It is the priviledge of seeing the Lord face to face, in this life, while still very mortal and fallible.
It is a journey fraught with intense paradox and increasing resistance from evil persons, both seen and unseen. It is a journey that the world-at-large cares very little about pursuing.
But as much as some may oppose it, there is greater power and support for having it happen in your life! He wants to bless us!
Like many gospel truths, reading this book and applying and LIVING the principles found therein, can bless your life on many levels. The deeper your surrender to the voice of the Lord, the more the things Snuffer's book talks about will bless you, up to and including meeting the Lord face-to-face. If you are LDS, read Ether chapter 3, and realize that this event was caused to be preserved in scripture FOR A REASON. And that reason was to let us know that such a meeting with the Lord is for every Saint. As I have read elsewhere, let us not siphon the power of this promise by assuming that it is reserved for some future judgement day when ALL will bow the knee and confess that Jesus is the Christ. D&C 93:1 looses much of it's potency it we assume it refers to some point in time AFTER death. While it may not happen to every soul while yet mortal (we must allow for that) -- by the same token, it cannot happen if we do not believe it can happen. Let us be believing and the Lord will take care of the timing and deny us no blessing that He has promised.
Thank you, Brother Snuffer, for obeying the Voice of the Lord. I pray that this book, written by the command of God Himself, will find those who are willing to receive the promised blessing(s).
I pray that I, too, can receive the Second Comforter when I am ready.

Brandon Blair Feb 06, 2007
By Brandon J Blair
I'm a recent convert to the LDS faith. Since my conversion, I've struggled with following the path. This book has been instrumental in clearing the mist of darkness from my path back to Our Lord, even to the extent that I can see where I'm heading more clearly now than I ever could before. I would like to offer an eternal thanks to Denver for this book and recommend it to ANYONE who is truly seeking after Our Lord and Savior. It is an inspired book, for I and the Holy Spirit who was in me while reading it testify that it is so, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
