As I read Dr. Jackson's book Only By The Grace Of God ,the first thing that drew me was the cover from the orange groves of central Florida to the board rooms of south Florida men picking oranges totally manual labor sweet of his brow then there is the board room, men and women of distinction I wanted to know how he got there and what it took to do it. ? As I read this story I was so inspired how by the grace of God leading we was able to over come tribulation, distress, persecution, famine, racism, and not turn out bitter is a true testimony to the old saying the race does not go to the swift nor the fast but the one that endure to the end ,I was so moved and inspired ,I will try to tell my story thanks Dr. Dennis M. Jackson for telling the world through God all things are possible it we only believe. Malinda H. Newlander

It is a honor to give my review of Dr. Dennis M. Jackson's book "Only By The Grace Of God" I read apt 2-3 books per week ,But once I got started on Dr. Jackson's book I could not put it down from chapter 1 to chapter 8 I was held spell bound to see what would happen next, the book pulls you into the story as if you were standing there. Chapter 1 over coming his struggles with a life lesion at the end "Humble beginnings do not mean humble endings" something for everybody Chpt.4 using his Spiritual back ground and intellect to become a business owner, I was moved by chpt.5 The heart of a parent where he talks about a special needs child. This a great moving and dynamite story good enough for a movie, God Bless Dr. Bishop Dennis M. Jackson Dr.R.L.Epilogue Portland Oregon

Prior to the publishing of "Only by the Grace of God", Dr. Dennis Jackson honored us with the opportunity to read the draft copy of his book. We were drawn into the book and his story by his honesty and transparency as he recalled his life experiences as a young man and throughout his adult life. For the newly ordained pastor, this is a must read book. There are pitfalls that a lurking, ready to devour the young pastor, that will be avoided by basking in the wisdom found in the contents of this book by Dr. Jackson. We applaud this literary piece by Dr. Jackson, and are looking forward to reading his next work. Every pastor, young and old should have a copy of Dr. Jackson's journey in their personal library. God Bless You, Dr. Reginald and Lynda Browne

"Only by the Grace of God" is a good example of how one's life can move up from the bottom to the top when God is the head. Dr. Jackson has a story to tell. This book should be on the required book reading list for the public high schools throughout this country, especially during black history month celebrations. After reading Dr. Jackson's story and having known him over the years it makes me appreciate him that much more. Dr. James Bush III Former Florida State Representative of District 109

I met Bishop Jackson and had a nice talk with him, then he introduced his book to me. My fiance and I both read it. Once we picked it up we couldn't put it down. This book shows how great it is to have God on your side. He lets you into his personal life and how he was on the fence between GOOD and evil. When he really started put climb the fence, God took him with open arms, because he never let him go. I recommended this book as a good tool to show you that when you make the necessary changes and follow God, blessings will pour unto you continuously. I thank Bishop Jackson for 1st speaking to me personally and then offering this book for extra insight. To God Be The Glory!!!   Jackie Clark/Miami, Fl

Dr. Jackson has told all the good the bad and the ugly but what stands out the most with me is he showed that a man can fall down but he don't have to lay down he can still look he can get up and this is what happened to Dr. Jackson behind each event he gives use a life lesion to help us not to fall into the same trap and avoid some of life's pit falls I admire this great man for the intestinal fortitude to help somebody else off his mistakes. God Bless you Dr. Jackson Dr.S. M. Mayday / Grand Rapids, Michigan

Reading Dr. Jackson's book made me realize that everyone has a story to tell. In spite of what he went through, Pastor Jackson got up,dusted himself off, and persevered.You Sir,are a prime example of how the Lord will reward total submission to him coupled with hard work and humility. This book is a must read .Humbly summited Ann McNeill President ,MCO Construction & Services

Reading Dr. Jackson's book gave me a deeper love and appreciation for the man of God that he is. The Lord placed Dr. Jackson in my life when I was nine years old, and to this day Dr. Jackson is still a positive role model and spiritual figure in my life. The book blessed me and it will bless you too. Darrin Smith

As I reflect on the autobiography of 'Only By The Grace Of God 'by Bishop Dennis M. Jackson it is apparent that he is living a purpose filled life. These experiences can be shared with those who need some direction about related struggles of which I am sure he has done for many years. This book will uplift the reader on many levels and will inspire the reader to seek a closer relationship with God.
