"It would be well for us to spend a thoughtful hour each day in contemplation of the life of Christ. We should take it point by point, and let the imagination grasp each scene, especially the closing ones. As we thus dwell upon His great sacrifice for us, our confidence in Him will be more constant, our love will be quickened, and we shall be more deeply imbued with His spirit."--Desire of Ages, p. 83.

As precious as the story of Jesus is to each of us, our daily lives keep us so busy that it's hard to carve out the time we would like to spend learning about Him. It's hard to find an hour--a thoughtful hour--reading and studying the gospel accounts of His life.

That's why this little book exists. It is designed to make the thoughtful hour easier, to give a little structure and focus to a study of the life of Christ. Whether you work through the pages as part of a study group or on your own, you will find a fresh look at the gospel story. The questions can be answered as part of a discussion or in your own heart as you read in thoughtful consideration.

In A Thoughtful Hour, Jerry D. Thomas has masterfully captured the essence of the final chapters of The Desire of Ages and developed study guides to accompany his devotional thoughts. At a time when the Seventh-day Adventist Church is emphasizing revival, this material can be powerfully used by the Holy Spirit to make a difference.

Revival is the reawakening of the spiritual longings of the soul. The most effective way to foster revival is by a deeper appreciation for the Christ of Calvary. Looking to Jesus on the cross, we are changed. This is why I am so enthusiastic about A Thoughtful Hour. As you meditate on the life of Christ and consider its closing scenes, your own life will be changed. Ask the Holy Spirit to impress the truths you read upon your heart. It will lead you into an encounter with Jesus that is beyond what you can imagine. --Mark Finley

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY:

Jerry D. Thomas


Jerry D. Thomas grew up on a farm in East Texas, the middle of five children born to Pastor and Mrs. Hagar Thomas. He graduated from Valley Grande Academy in Weslaco, Texas, and married Kitty Barron, daughter of Evangelist Dick and Jeanne Barron, shortly thereafter. Together they attended Southwestern Adventist University and began a family. After the birth of their first two children—Jon and Jennifer—Jerry graduated with a B.A. in Theology from SWAU. The family moved to Berrien Springs, Michigan, to attend the SDA Theological Seminary at Andrews University, and there their third child, Jeremy, was born. A year later, they accepted a call to pastor and teach at Highland View Academy in Hagerstown, Maryland.During the six years he taught religion and pastored there, Jerry finished a master’s degree in religious education at Andrews University. He also began his writing career, with stories and articles published in Guide, Insight, the Adventist Review, and the Journal of Adventist Education.In 1991, Jerry accepted a call to Pacific Press as an assistant book editor. The next year, he wrote the first of his beloved Detective Zack books and began his successful career as a book author. In 1994, he became the book editor for Pacific Press, a position he held until 2002.Today, Jerry is the author of more than 30 books and hundreds of stories. His books, which have sold more than one million copies, are being read around the world in ten different languages. With his Detective Zack, Shoebox Kids, Great Stories for Kids, Mixed-up Max, and What We Believe books, Jerry has written more for children than anyone in Adventist history.In 2001, Jerry took on the biggest challenge of his writing career. With the support of the White Estate, he adapted The Desire of Ages, the Ellen White classic on the life of Jesus, into modern, simpler English. Messiah has been a best-selling book since it was released in 2002 and it continues to help readers see Jesus more clearly. His adaptation of Thoughts from the Mount of Blessing, called Blessings, was released in 2009.After serving as communication director for the Southwestern Union and editor of the Southwestern Union Record for five years, Jerry returned to Pacific Press as vice-president for product development in 2008. He and Kitty live in Nampa, Idaho.
