New Audio Available

We recently received an audio recording of a talk Denver gave on September 18, 2010 at the Chiasmus Conference at the American Heritage School in American Fork, UT.

We have cleaned it up the best we can, and it’s now available on Denver’s page in the Archive. You can also directly access it here.

It contains a lot of great information. We hope you’ll give it a listen and find it worthwhile.

ANNOUNCEMENT: The Teachings of Denver C. Snuffer, Jr. Volume 1: 2007-2013

Not long ago, in a conversation with me, Denver said that one day, we will “wish we had hit print” because computers and the internet will not always be available. We at the archives, want to make it as easy as possible for everyone to “hit print” on all of Denver’s materials, so that when that day comes we will have hard copies of everything, distributed widely around the world.

To that end, a new book series was released a few days ago on Amazon and on our website. This first volume (“TDS 1”) covers all of Denver’s publicly-released talks, papers and Q&A sessions that occurred prior to the 40 Years in Mormonism talks (a.k.a. “the 10 talks”). Here is an excerpt from the Preface:

Following the publication of The Second Comforter: Conversing with the Lord Through the Veil in 2006, I have been asked on occasion to speak or present papers to various gatherings. What started out as a talk or a discussion here and there, has grown into a body of work consisting of many millions of words that fill thousands of pages of books, papers, transcripts, and audio and video recordings.

This book series will comprise all of the essays, papers and transcripts of talks I have given publicly, starting with “Christ’s Discourse on the Road to Emmaus”, a talk I gave in April, 2007. Using the transcript of that talk as a basis, I corrected errors, completed unfinished thoughts, added footnotes and a diagram, and added additional content, expanding it into a finished paper. In the cases where I follow this pattern, the finished paper is or will be included in this series, rather than the original audio transcript, because I consider the papers to be a more complete and better overall presentation of the same material. In the cases where no completed paper has been or will be produced, the audio transcript has been carefully reviewed for accuracy and included without further expansion or correction. This book series, therefore, together with the Restoration Edition of the scriptures that were canonized in September, 2017, all of the books I have written, and my complete blog and podcasts, constitute the body of work that has been presented publicly thus far.

This volume covers the first eight talks and papers I gave from 2007 through 2013 – essentially everything that came before the ten 40 Years in Mormonism lectures that began in September, 2013. Those ten lectures will be contained in the second volume of this series. Subsequent volumes are planned that will contain everything given from 2014 through today, with future material to be compiled into additional volumes as it becomes available, as the Lord allows.

We will announce each volume here as it becomes available. Volume 2 is almost ready for publication already, and should be available shortly.

EDITIONS AND FORMATTING
Each volume is being made available in four (4) different editions/formats. They are:

  1. Restoration Archive Edition – 8.5 x 11″, 186 page paperback with 12 point font. Larger margins and layout for study and notes.
  2. Readers Edition – 6 x 9″, 316 page paperback with 12 point font. Smaller margins and layout for easy reading and convenient carrying.
  3. Kindle Edition – Digital format for any device with free Kindle reader.
  4. Downloadable PDF – Free download of the entire book, so you can print it out on your own printer if you want.

A photo rendering of what the finished book series will look like can be found here.

This should make it very easy and convenient for anyone to be able to “hit print” at the lowest possible cost. We hope you will find this effort beneficial, now and in the future. Enjoy!

Lots of New Stuff – And More to Come!

Many of you have asked that we keep you posted when new things are added to the archives. The trouble is, new things have been added to the archives so frequently lately that posting a notification each time is just not practical. So, we encourage you to come back often to see what’s new.

Meanwhile, we will try to post periodically when major things happen, and this is one of those times.

PODCAST ARCHIVE ADDED: Through the end of 2018, 50 podcast episodes had been published on Denver’s website, and now an archive of all of those episodes with audio and transcripts (as they become available) can be found in the new Podcast area on Denver’s page.

GENERAL CONFERENCES: The General Conferences area has been significantly updated, with audio, video and transcripts (where available) of individual talks, events and presentations now archived and available for each conference. We have also received written conference histories for each of the first two (2) Boise conferences, which will be posted shortly. We are also hoping to be able to post conference histories for each of the other three general conferences that have already transpired, as well as all future ones. Those histories will be added to the resources available for each conference as they become available.

REGIONAL MEETINGS: We are aware of eight (8) regional or multi-fellowship meetings that occurred during 2018, and we have archived the audio, video and transcripts (where available) of all of them of which we are aware. We do not have transcripts for most of those talks and presentations, so if you happen to have a transcript or a paper that is not yet posted, please send them in!

JOHN PRATT SACRED CALENDARS:  Dr. John Pratt has commenced a weekly presentation on Sacred Calendars, held each Sunday evening by Zoom meeting. Event information is available in the Events calendar if you would like to attend live. Additionally, we have added the audio, video, slides and other resources from each session to the Regional Meetings area of the archive. He has completed 16 sessions to date, with a goal of going through a full year (we assume around 52 sessions) to complete the cycle.

We hope you find the Restoration Archives to be useful and helpful in your daily walk. If you would like to contribute time, talent, or means to this effort, please reach out and let us know. If you have suggestions or ideas, please pass them along. And, be on the lookout for a huge announcement in a few days – we’ve been working on a major project that is just now reaching its first major milestone…

More to come…!

We Could Use Some Help…

The Temple Fund

Work is underway on a temple. It begins with collecting donations to fund the building efforts. There is a committee of women who are working together for this cause, and they have created a website with details about the project and different options for assisting with the efforts.

Click here to view the website of the Temple Fund committee now.

Based on recent remarks from Denver regarding some of the temple failures in Nauvoo, Karen Strong of the Temple Fund committee led a discussion about the Temple Fund with a local fellowship in Utah. The meeting was recorded, and the Temple Fund committee would like to make it available for all who are interested. Here are the relevant links:

Joseph Smith Restoration Conference Update

Just a quick update – In the Library section for Denver Snuffer, we just posted the audio of the talk Denver gave last night at the Joseph Smith Restoration Conference in Boise, ID. As soon as it’s available, we will also post to our YouTube channel a complete set of videos of the conference, including excellent talks by many people from various branches of Mormonism. Enjoy!

Restoration Archive YouTube Channel Update!

Recently, the Restoration Archive committee added a YouTube channel to the collection of resources available to you to assist in your gospel study. We are pleased to announce that as of yesterday, the entirety of the Denver Snuffer collection of talks, everything that has been recorded since 2007, is now available on that channel. All of the recordings have been converted to video, and where actual video footage exists, that has been included. If no video exists, then there is simply a static image behind the audio.

All audio has been remastered and optimized for tablets and smartphones, which will enhance the quality of output when you are streaming the video. The result both looks and sounds fantastic. A lot of work has gone into this project and we are excited to share it with you.
