Dear UnBlog Family,
It’s literally been months since I checked in with you, and I truly do apologize for that, dear friends. It has been an extraordinarily involved time for me, not only in getting back on my feet after John’s passing, but I’ve been having some major family ups-and-downs that even involved us moving to Alaska for a brief time. (We’re back in Utah now–whhew.)
As most of you know, for months I have been working very hard on getting John’s newest book to press, Journey to the Veil. I titled it that because John wrote the UnBlog while he was fighting cancer and making his mortal journey to the veil, as a way of capturing his thoughts and life experiences while there was still opportunity to do so. Journey to the Veil is now completed and has gone to press! It will be on bookshelves and available through Amazon and other booksellers on November 12, 2013. You can actually preorder the book at Amazon.com right now, by searching for “Journey to the Veil” by John Pontius.
I have to tell you, my friends, that I am soooo excited about this book, and the way it has come together! What an inspiring process this has been! It is most evident that the Lord (and certainly John) truly did want Journey to the Veil to be published, for it was put together under quite miraculous circumstances. Oh, and it is going to be a fun fun read, as it includes lots of John’s intriguing stories that will make you laugh and then cry, just like we always did when John was sharing with us for the first time.
I am equally thrilled, too, with the riveting doctrinal commentary that I believe is a perfect complement to Visions of Glory. In fact, it seems to me that this new book is a “how-to” manual for Visions of Glory. When a person reads Visions they get an extraordinarily detailed picture of the latter-day Zion and the incredible possibilities that lie ahead. And now that same person can read Journey to the Veil and learn in an easy-to-read format how to actually achieve the Zion stature for themselves. I never envisioned such a thing when I first started compiling this book, or the timing of it all; but it’s obvious that the Lord did!
Thanks for your support and love . . . God bless you all.
