    One Reply to “Journey to the Veil”

    1. This will get a very mixed review from me. I was under the impression that it was about near death experiences when I picked it up. It was not, not really. It was more about how one man got so close to the veil in his lifetime. I like a lot of the doctrine he taught, and will never dispute gospel doctrine. He seemed sincere. My problem was, as I readd when I finishedI felt bad. How would I ever do the things he has done to become so righteous! Either it seemed very extreme to meor I just don't u [...]

    2. My brother suggested this book to me after reading, "Visions of Glory." Brother Pontius felt prompted to started his blog after the LDS church encouraged members to be a positive influence online. Here is the church internet policy: lds/pages/social-medi.This book is a compilation of blog posts from John Pontius' online blog titled, "Unblog My Soul: Building Zion in our Hearts and Homes." Found here: unblogmysoul.wordpress/ After Brother Pontius' death, his wife selected blog posts to be publish [...]

    3. If you knew you were dying, what would you do with the time you had left? John Pontius has six months to live, so he begins a blog called Unblog my Soul, which was later compiled by his wife, Terri. In this deeply moving account, John shares his wisdom and the experiences of a lifetime with his children and friends, which ended up including thousands of readers. He tells of the things most dear to his soul and gives advice that if followed would increase their spirituality. I loved this book. It [...]

    4. Wonderful. Completely, spiritually, uplifting--- the entire book! Hard to put down once you start reading. He writes about profoundly spiritual things to HELP teach us how we bring ourselves to Christ's will. He has inspired me and my husband many times and is still leading us to Christ.

    5. It's a must to read this book slowly. So much goodness and truth to ponder and apply. I will be reading this book again!

    6. This is a book to read each small section every day in order to fully absorb the magnitude of what the author is sharing. John Pontius was an absolute spiritual giant, someone I would like to be like but he was so 'obedient' to the laws of God I don't think I can duplicate his spiritual greatness. I need to buy this book so I can underline the great thoughts.

    7. I loved reading these journal entries. I learned life changing principles and am not the same after reading. I could definitely read it again right now and still learn just as much, I'm sure.

    8. I have very mixed feelings about this book! My rating bounces between 4 stars and 2 stars, depending on the page you're looking at. Ultimately, I have more issues than praises, so I am going with 2 stars. I picked up this book expecting to read about a near-death experience (that is apparently the subject of his other book though, which is shamelessly promoted several times throughout these pages). Then I read the Foreword and Introduction and realized this is more of a last lecture before dying [...]

    9. What an interesting journey, and such a spiritual one! John Pontius, the author, has a terminal illness and wrote this book, calling it an unblog, to share his spiritual experiences before he passed away. My husband and I read this book aloud, taking turns reading his daily "unblogs." We were amazed at the number, variety, and deep spiritual thoughts and experiences that he experienced in his life. He shared so many experiences he had in coming closer to Christ. He shared what he considered life [...]

    10. This is an uplifting and enlightening book. The faith and dedication of this religious man are inspiring, and many life lessons can be learned by reading of his experiences. Much of the book is a compilation from John's public blog, "UnBlog My Soul", as shared during the final years of his life while fighting terminal cancer. He writes with great insight of many events in his life previous to the time he became ill, in addition to challenges he faced during his final year or two of life. His wif [...]

    11. Absolutely loved this. John Pontius' blogs before he passed away from cancer, his spiritual experiences, what life has taught him about the gospel of Jesus Christ and our relationship with him, the potential we have to rise above this world and live so much closer to the veil through obedience and faith, and his testimony and love of God. This book has opened up my eyes to the power we have within God's power to become much more than we ever thought possible. Everything that persuades us to beli [...]

    12. Solid 5 star book, in a world that has so few. Ever read a book that you were absolutely glued to from start to finish? You know, that book that you love reading so much that you start rationing yourself, so it will last a little bit longer. "OK. There's only half the book left. I'm only allowed to read 3 chapters today" This book was that way for me. Even more importantly, this book changed me. This book gave me a desire to be a better person. Have you ever read a book that was totally gripping [...]

    13. This one is going to be a go-to book for me when I feel the need for a spiritual boost. John Pontius started a blog for his family and friends to give them encouragement and share his experiences. It got so popular and needed that when he was told that he had cancer he and his wife decided to compile some of his blog posts in a book. This is the book! He blogs through his entire illness with faith and courage. Plus I learned faith-based things that have caused me to get off my complacent bottom! [...]

    14. Yeah, I love books about the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I also love reading stories about how to live these teachings. I read some of John Pontius's blog but I think it is great to have his writings in a book format. Thanks to his wife, Terri, for putting together the beautiful book. I also love the snippets of John's personal journey through is illness and trial. Thanks for sharing a very personal part of your life. Allowing the reader to sympathize and learn from others. This book is a quick read [...]

    15. Their are few books in life that one can say "that has changed me forever", this for me, is one of those books. I want to do and be better. I want to be more obedient and faithful to the promptings of the spirit. I want to share and understand the gospel of Jesus Christ more, His atonement, and how it works in my life everyday! It makes me want to reach out to help those around me, to see others the way God does Wonderful book! I will be reading this one again, and again.

    16. Simply put, this book is a written version of the authors un-blog. It is perfect, in the sense that anyone who wants to understand themselves and the gospel can read and gain testimony and wise teachings of how to be like Jesus Christ. While following the gospel, blessings can be obtained, and your life will be better for it. I gave up on marking the good parts with a highlighter. The whole book would have been in yellow or pink or orange. Thanks to John's wife for printing this.

    17. Wonderful book of answersI gave this book 5 stars because it answered many questions I have. I know people with whom I would love to talk regarding the gospel but have a hard time expressing my testimony. I have highlighted many places throughout this book that I can reference. This world will miss John Pontius but I'm sure he's doing great work beyond the veil. I would recommend this book to anyone seeking answers or seeking confirmation.

    18. Great personal insights the author has gained throughout his life experience and his scripture study. This book makes me want to study the scriptures more deeply to find revelation of my own, that directly pertains to me and my life. I think that was the author's desire, not that people will read his discoveries and take them as their own and not search for their own answers.

    19. Very insightful book that gave me a lot of things to ponder. What is truly important in life? I believe spiritual experience and miracles are all around us, but sometimes we forget to look and miss them. This made me think of a quote from a past LDS General conference, " A vision of our Father's incredible blessings must be the central focus before our eyes every day". Life is a wonderful gift!

    20. I will be buying this one. John's two books that I have read have been no doubt the most important books that I have ever read. Not only does it make me want to be a better person, (as a friend of mine has written) but it showed me how to improve my spirituality more than I ever thought possible.

    21. I have mixed feelings about this book. Some of the blog entries were touching. I felt the Spirit of truth, especially while he was recounting spiritual experiences. Other entries seemed to cross the line of authority and rubbed me wrong, especially where he was expounding doctrine. Overall, I'm glad I read the book. It made me want to be a better person.

    22. I have a very mixed opinion of this book after reading it over the course of a year. It is a compilation of John Pontius', blog posts. Some of his ideas really helped me see things in a new way and were very inspiring and others just didn't resonate at all. I would recommend it because there will be parts of this book that can potentially be life-changing.

    23. There were some really great, enlightening and inspiring things about this book. The first few chapters were really good and I flew through them. But there were also some really slow parts. As well as some interesting things about this book that I am not sure I totally agreed with. It took me a few months to read it but overall I think I learned from it and thought it was worth reading.

    24. One man's spiritual journey.John Pontius was dying from cancer. He sought to know more through study and prayer. He wanted to leave his children a written record, so he began a blog, "The Unblog."After his death, his wife, Terri, decided to compile some of his blogs into this book. I bought two copies and sent to my brothers for their birthdays this summer.

    25. I did not want this book to end. It had such a wonderful spiritual upliftment that I needed. I am so grateful for the wonderful spiritual messages that it containes. It has changed my spiritaul being.

    26. InspiredInspiredbeautifully inspired words to help us all on our mortal journey, become closer to our Savior, by learning to follow the prompting of the holy ghost.

    27. I loved this book. His words were for his children. Knowing he was dying he wanted to teach them the things he had learned in life. I too gained from reading his experiences and thoughts. I liked this book better than Visions of Glory.

    28. This book was recommmended by a friend and has been a wonderful book to read, even in quick moments on vacation. I haven't read the Unblog, but will. For me, this book has clarified some things that I've learned and added new understanding. Easy to read, but life-changing paradigm shifts.

    29. Mr. Pontius has an amazing ability to teach the gospel through inspiring stories and personal experiences. The main concept he teaches is to be completely obedient to the promptings of the spirit. Great book!!

    30. Inspiring witness of God's tender mercies.This is an inspiring book of events that takes place in John's life. It shows the wonderful blessings that come from seeking the love and guidance from a loving Heavenly Father. Wonderfully shared!
