CHICAGO, Ill. – The God Who Blesses: 50 Reflections on Blessing and Blessedness is a fresh, imaginative look at a concept that is paradoxically familiar yet also little understood by Christians. Written for the thoughtful lay person, The God Who Blesses explores the who, what, where, when, why and how of blessings, emphasizing their rootedness in God’s grace. Included are various case studies of blessing in Scripture. The book also addresses how we trivialize the concept of blessing, when we say things like “bless my cotton socks.”
Until now, the few books on blessing have taken a scholarly or academic approach. The God Who Blesses instead offers an accessible approach to an important but largely unexamined aspect of our faith.

According to Malcolm de Kock, Pastor Emeritus, Uniting Presbyterian Church in Southern Africa, “The words bless and blessings roll easily off our tongues. But how many of us truly understand their rich meanings? Gordon Jackson leads us on a trail of discovery through the Bible and places us in real life situations where we can apply what we have learnt. Here is a much needed, readable book certain to enrich the lives of ordinary Christians.”
