New Book is Sure to Prove a Blessing

Nampa, Idaho (June 17, 2009) — Pacific Press® recently released a new book by Jerry D. Thomas. Blessings is a contemporary adaptation of Ellen White's classic work, Thoughts From the Mount of Blessing, originally published in 1896.

Jerry first became aware of the challenges faced by many in understanding the writings of Ellen G. White, more than twenty years ago, while teaching Bible to academy students. With the support of the White Estate, he wrote Messiah, a contemporary adaptation of The Desire of Ages, which has enabled thousands of readers, young and old alike, to see Jesus with greater clarity and beauty. Jerry says, "My writing has grown out of a desire to help the reader understand a truth: to take something complicated and make it simple."

Now Jerry has done it again. James Nix, director of the Ellen G. White Estate says, "In Blessings, the inspired insights are made available in fresh, compelling language for today's generation."

The stories and teachings that thrilled the simple country folk of Galilee will bless your life and awaken hope and love in your heart. "Blessings is a careful study of the core teaching of Christianity," reports Max A. Trevino, president of the Southwestern Union Conference. "The principles found here will bring into focus how we should live in this world, and how we can truly become like Jesus."

Jerry D. Thomas is vice president of Product Development for Pacific Press® Publishing Association. He has authored thirty books.

Blessings is available at any local Adventist Book Center®, or by calling (800) 765-6955, as well as online at
