Many years ago, I met Jesse C. Jones and his lovely young family in Pasadena Texas. I grew up there and went to school there…..
Years later we reconnected and I discovered that he was writing books. His first was self published and is available in print via Amazon and other booksellers.
My review of this his first book is online there and below here:
When I was growing up in Pasadena Texas, my parents met the Lord in a life changing way and were friends with the author of this book. They established a bible study for the children of the adults getting to know the Lord and studying the Word together. We met in the ‘upper room’ at Jesse’s house and we studied so we could grow in the knowledge of Jesus and His Word. I have a lot of love and a depth of gratitude to this author for helping guide me to the Lord at an early age.
I am so glad he has written this book. It is like none other that you have read — probably because Jesse is an engineer rather than a story teller. It is not a long book, but it is dense with scripture; some printed out for you and more references to take you as deep as you want to go with each chapter. I have suggested to Jesse that it would be perfect to provide online for small groups to use as guidance for bible studies. It is both foundational and for the believer who wants to go deeper. Isn’t the Word like that though?
I marvel that eternity may not be long enough to get to know our Creator! It is like an expanding understanding whether you go outward or inward. Time and dimensions seem to expand and contract as needed as we move in Him. I marvel at both the complexity and the simplicity of the Gospel.
One other thing that is very special about this book is the way Jesse had it published and what he does with the proceeds. He self published and any profits go to help a food bank in his community. So read the book and bless your life and a local community as well. What a roll model for us all! Thank you Jesse for oh so many things. May the Lord bless this effort in ways beyond your comprehension~
This author has more books available online via my Scribd account there (scrosnoe). They are free and downloadable and sharable too! One of she latest ones is discussed here […] and it talks about one of the bible teachers sent to this author in the early days of his spiritual development. My family was on that journey with him so it is a very precious story to me.
Since then and in the past couple of years, Jesse has written a series of books available online and free to download. We have been honored to have Rex Morache, a gifted graphic artist, provide many of the covers — each one special and timely.
I hope to be doing a series of articles on these books but for now if you want to explore on your own, here is the link to all of them available on scribd >>>.
You can read them online and/or download and print. I believe they would make good study guides for home bible study groups because they are so dense with scripture references. You decide what works best for you and share freely as we have here.
It has been an honor to help make this work available to all!
