Chapel Music® has released a new compilation CD called Songs of the Messiah, a collection of music based on Jerry D. Thomas’ bestselling book Messiah


Nampa, Idaho (November 12, 2003) -- Chapel Music© has released a new compilation CD called Songs of the Messiah, a collection of music based on Jerry D. Thomas’ bestselling book – Messiah.

Songs of the Messiah is an elegant sampler of music by 13 different Chapel© artists. The CD retails for only $3.97 and is 60 minutes long. It is available through any local Adventist Book Center or online at www.adventistbookcenter.com.

Songs of the Messiah was produced to enhance the readers’ experience of Messiah, assisting them in their contemplation on the life of Christ, says Warren Gough, Chapel Music© director. A free listening guide is available at www.adventistbookcenter.com.

This high-quality CD is a great gift this Christmas for family and friends, adding meaning to the Christmas story, says Gough. Also, since the price is so affordable the CD makes a wonderful employee or customer gift for organizations, suggests Gough.

The book Messiah, which has sold thousands of copies, is a contemporary adaptation of Ellen White’s classic on the life of Jesus, The Desire of Ages. Thomas’ inspiration for Messiah came from working with young people. He says, “My interest in adapting The Desire of Ages began as a teacher, when I wanted so much for students to see Ellen White’s beautiful picture of Jesus and they had such a hard time reading and understanding the book. Messiah makes it possible for people of all ages to read and understand this precious story of Jesus.”

Messiah is available in both hardback and paperback with two cover choices: Caucasian or African American. The hardback edition retails for $19.99 and the paperback edition retails for as low as $5.99.
