Overview

John Pontius (Visions of Glory) was given six months to live by his doctors. He began 'UnBlog My Soul' as a way to unburden his soul and leave a testimony to his children of the glorious truths Heavenly Father had shared with him.

The blog quickly gained hundreds of followers because of the clear, beautiful doctrines and John's compelling story. This book compiles some of the most compelling blog entries, while weaving in the narrative of his journey to the veil.

A concert pianist and vocalist as well, she teaches music and conducts choir and orchestra along with her theatrical projects, with her husband assisting right by her side until his passing.

Highly recommend! I can't thank John Pontius enough for how much this book has changed me and my life. Clearly he was guided by the Holy Spirit writing this.  Besides the scriptures and John's other book, Visions of Glory, I've never read anything that has brought me as close to God as this book has. It is easy to read and very thought provoking. This book brought me out of a spiritual darkness I didn't realize I was in, gave me hope in ways I didn't know was possible. Beautiful.

I found this book easy to read, and a wonderful encouragement to center my life on Christ, take the Holy Spirit for my guide, and be about my Father's business, instead of sitting on the couch watching TV. This is not a "must read", this is a "read it, learn it, live it" book. Besides the scriptures, this is the most impactful book I have ever read. Keith H, Mesa, AZ
