(Sidenote: I am rating this book on content as opposed to syntax.) The message of this book is well worth the read, but it can be, perhaps, unsettling for those who aren't totally ready for the message. I don't say that any pride because my friends were very invested in this book and blog of the author for sometime before I was willing to join them. I wasn't ready for it. Now, I love it and I will say without hesitation that it has changed the way I operate in my daily life. "Spencer" is without guile in his testimony of Jesus Christ and Zion. I bought copies for all my children--that's the best recommendation I can give.

"Spencer" has been expertly deceived by the adversary.  Satan and his spirits have the ability to create visions of their own, and to make themselves appear to have glory like an angel.  He and his spirits also mix truth with lies to make the lies easier to swallow.   President Monsen is probably the one mortal on this Earth who has the most insight of what is to come, and even he doesn't write a book about it.  Just think about it.:  in Spencer's vision, he gets the office next to Christ's office.  What gives him this privilege when he is neither a prophet or apostle?  It sounds like Satan wants to boost Spencer's ego by telling him (obviously in the guise of an angel) that he is going to be translated and bring people back from the dead.  And why would Christ hold a private general conference session wearing a dark business suit and a red tie?  Before buying this book, you should read some reviews that are backed up by scripture and talks from prophets and general authorities.

    I am a non mormon living in Utah.. I was extremely skeptical because its a book based on a LDS man who has had NDE. I was shocked on the first half of the book, how detailed his memory was standing over his body, how he could feel everything around him, how he could see all angels, even those that have not come to terms that they have died and even devil spirits. My mother who was in a coma for a week also has claimed she saw similar things during her experience. What really bothered me was when he saw Jesus, it was not at all special as he explained when he had a NDE, it was like.. yep Jesus came to me. It bothered me. The next thing that really bothered me was when he was explaining evil spirits entering your soul and jumping in and out.. I am an occasional drinker, and enjoy doing so, i however do not think demons are jumping around me and entering my soul.. The biggest thing that bothered me was the second coming.. first and far most living in Utah we live on a fault line, we are "due" for a major earthquake.. And as for the new zion... me and my husband could not stop laughing because my husband who is Canadian grew up in Cardston, that being said, it is the smallest town with literally one light in the town, but however there is this HUGE temple that the whole town has built there houses around it. Like they are worshiping the temple.. Its weird, if i were the saints and spencer being the new prophet or whatever.. keep heading up to lethbridge. I couldn't finish the book, it became biased on the LDS religion, it just didn't make sense, all his NDE never revolved around the LDS church until he saw the second coming, and that is where he lost me...

    For the Spiritually Aware

    If you don't believe in God then you're not likely to believe anything in this book. But if you do, if you understand that there's more to life than just flesh and bones, that you are more than an accidental creation, then this book is for you. And for you Preppers out there, do you want to know what's going to happen? Read this book. It's a life changer and awareness builder - a must read for any and all who wonder about this life and the next.
