About the Author

Jerry Blount has been researching and teaching the scriptures for nearly fifty years. This is a great passion in his life. Many years ago he asked God to give him a passion for His Word. He never dreamed how God would honor that prayer. Since then he has been through the Bible dozens of times, always delighted as God reveals new things and insights to him. For many years, Jerry has taught Bible studies on subjects that don’t normally get taught in church. Subjects that don’t fit into a normal Sunday morning sermon. This includes subjects such as end times events; what is Heaven really like; proof that Jesus lived, was crucified, and rose again; and other important but seldom mentioned topics. A selection of these was published in an earlier book Jerry wrote, “Things You Probably Didn’t Learn in Church.” Jerry loves doing the research for his studies and books. Doing Biblical research is one of his greatest joys. Jerry has written weekly stories for Hope Shack, which is an online community where hurting people and others can find help and encouragement. The stories Jerry write are outdoor stories with a Biblical twist. He also writes a variety of stories and articles that he posts on his website, 'jerryblount.com.' It seems like he has always taught Bible studies or classes. Starting with the youth group when he was a teenager. Jerry is honored God has used him in this way. Jerry knows and lives "Without God, I am nothing." Jerry has been a builder and business owner but feels his real job is to help build the kingdom of God. That is Jerry's true love and passion. God has blessed Jerry and his wife, Linda in so many ways. They live in the Hiawatha National Forest in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. They are blessed with a great son and daughter, and the four greatest granddaughters ever. Jerry considers himself a blessed man.
