Publisher's Summary

Popular author and speaker John Pontius has once again created a classic! 

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. 

With hundreds of references from the Scriptures and the prophets of our dispensation, The Triumph of Zion: Our Personal Quest for the New Jerusalem will guide you in obtaining the blessings of Zion for yourself and your family.

#giftofTRANSLATION

The information expounded on, from the scriptures and words of our prophets and apostles, is so phenomenal and spirit filled!! Not many people my age are learning or seeking after, I’m a millennial, and know my place. My goals have shifted from worldly to becoming Zion/ translated. Out of his 3 books I’ve read this (triumph of Zion) is probably my favorite, with visions of glory as a close second, and then following the light of Christ into his presence. They along with dr Avraham Gileadi’s books on Isaiah have helped me gained VOLUMES of understanding. The spirit is so strong reading these books. And I pause, then find the references in the scriptures they list, and do another side study. Then press play again, then pause and do a side study, then press play. And the whole time the spirit is speaking to me and testimony of Truth!! Soooo amazing!!
Thank you thank you thank you!!! We discuss this with friends and study groups each week, and also some Facebook pages that are spiritually centered. Recommend this to anyone who wants the gift of translation to better understand what blessings we can have. Not recommended for anyone who loves Babylon and chose not to rid themselves of all ungodliness, I recently recommended this book to a couple of friends who said they were ready... but I don’t think they read scriptures... they said they loved it, but a lot of it was a bit over their heads. Just go on the church website and study second comforter, Zion, translated beings, church of the firstborn, city of enoch, the difference in covenants you make in the temple between moving from the telestial room , the terrestrial room and the celestial room, those covenants we make are also on the church website, study them. And then you will be prepared to read this book.( he doesn’t talk about anything we’ve Covenanted to not talk about). I love every paragraph in this book. And you can tell it’s all from the scriptures,(even though all the scriptures are listed.!!

Outstanding eternal perspective

The writing is clear, compelling and captivating about a highly sacred topic. A must read for each person seeking their way back to their Heavenly Father.

The narrator is one of my favorites because of his clear enunciation, pleasing tone, and emphasis.

Jaw Dropping

Excellent research; superb footnotes, quotes, and cited sources; uncovered mysteries in plain sight! Thank you John for a provocative and insightful view of a core belief of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints... WOW!

Great guide for all who desire to see the face of God

John Pontius clearly explains scriptural steps to be with God, and that our desire to be closer isn’t out of reach. My longing for my deceased son, parents and brother leads me to want to be nearer to God— And now I can actively work on following Christ’s promptings that come in the form of my conscience, leading me to more light, and eventually to translation and being with God. The big difference before and after reading this book is that John points out all this is possible during mortality. Many have done it before, why not you and me? Highly recommend this and all John Pontius’ books.

Best book ever

If you’re looking for a complete understanding of gospel principles,, this is your book. Things are clearer now and I have a greater understanding of the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ after reading and listening to this book. John Pontius has a gift in bringing to light that which has been obscure or taken for granted. However, as with all things of God this must be approached with an open heart and a contrite spirit or you will miss the full magnitude of truthfulness and the glory of God in these words. So grateful for this book and the other books written by John Pontius. I can’t wait to thank you in person one day, my brother!

Life Changing

This book, along with other titles by John, have changed how I look at the Gospel and my relationship with the Lord. They have helped me draw closer to Father in Heaven and gained a greater desire to live the Gospel more fully. John's books show how real and pragmatic the Gospel can be in our everyday life and explains some of the great blessings that await the faithful. Can't thank you enough John.
