  • The Triumph of Zion

  • Our Personal Quest for the New Jerusalem
  • By: John M. Pontius
  • Narrated by: Rick Gines

    5 out of 5 stars 40

As the world anticipates its end, we Latter-Day Saints are preparing to build the city of Zion. With so much emphasis on building Zion physically on earth, we sometimes forget the best place to build Zion is within our own hearts. John Pontius carefully details the importance of Zion in our own lives, opening our eyes to our oft-overlooked obligations and vast privileges.

In this recorded account of near-death experiences, we learn about the miracles of the millennium, the return of the Ten Tribes, the building of the New Jerusalem and temple, and many other astonishing events long prophesied in scripture but never before described in such vivid detail. Visions of Glory is a mesmerizing and fascinating read that you will not be able to put down.

You know her voice. Now hear her story.

Audible has teamed up with Rolling Stone to produce an uncompromisingly honest Audible Original that honors the life and legacy of the incomparable Aretha Franklin. Aretha’s universal appeal was evident from the release of her first album at age 14 through her nearly 50 Top 40 hits. Yet this intimate biography reminds us that Aretha knew pain as much as she knew glory. It was the blues, residing deep within her soul, that gave way to a voice able to lift millions with a profound sense of freedom, self-worth, and undeniable talent to rise above sorrow.

A stunning and sure to be controversial book that pieces together, through more than two dozen 19th-century diaries, letters, albums, minute books, and quilts left by first-generation Latter-day Saints, or Mormons, the never before told story of the earliest days of the women of Mormon "plural marriage", whose right to vote in the state of Utah was given to them by a Mormon-dominated legislature as an outgrowth of polygamy in 1870, 50 years ahead of the vote nationally ratified by Congress.

Mr. Mormon can take a normal LDS member and turn them into a Super-Mormon by using new ideas and discoveries from science, the cosmos, world history, and the scriptures. Mr. Mormon teaches about a supernova that was recorded by Chinese astronomers at the time of the birth of Jesus. It discovers that Joseph Smith taught the theory of time relativity over a half of a century before Albert Einstein.

I learned a lot from this book. The author puts truths in a form that they are very easy to understand. the only thing I didn't like was that at the beginning and end of every chapter they tell you how to go online and download the information for free, after I already paid for the book!

Any additional comments?

After listening to this audio book a couple nights, I started receiving free books and products for review. It's not winning the Lotto, but I haven't bought a ticket either. Sometimes you need to start with the little stuff, which gives you more confidence to work up to the big stuff. Years ago I did win a car, I bought this book to help me get back into the mindset to attract great things into my life again.

A dislike about this book is that after a relaxing span, the speaking will start again too loud. I especially dislike the last track. It always wakes me up! For a book that is made for 'deep sleep', why would it end with a loud track to wake you up???

I wish I could only listen to track 2, but can't figure out how to make my tablet only play that track. I like to listen to it as I fall asleep, but when it gets to track 3 it always wakes me up!
