Why the Second Comforter?
I was asked why my list of essential books included The Second Comforter: Conversing With the Lord Through the Veil, but omitted my other books. I responded:
If someone understands the message of The Second Comforter, they will be able to get for themselves everything else contained in all the other books. The Second Comforter is not about me, it is about the reader. You should apply that book to yourself, which will lead you inevitably back to the presence of the Lord. The Lord will then instruct you in all things needed to be prepared to be presented to the Father.
Beloved Enos is a description of the results of that audience. If you understand and apply The Second Comforter you will receive those results.
Come, Let Us Adore Him is my testimony of Christ. But my testimony is not as important as your own. It may help you to develop your own, but without your own testimony borrowing from another can never be the end of the journey.
I wouldn't write a book unless I believed it to be important and to contain truth coming from a higher source. Nevertheless, it is what you know, not what I as an author may know, that will save you. It is the salvation of others, not the attention of others, that concerns me. If I can help point them to the Lord, then I have some limited use. Beyond that, I have no purpose.
Since all that we hope to receive from the Lord flows from the discussion in The Second Comforter, it is that book which I believe to be most important.
