Dr.Jackson, tell us about your book?

The Secret Mandate of Rehab is an intimate awe-inspiring Memoir of some of the critical pivotal and crucial events that shaped young years of my life written with intentions to draw the readers into facing the secrets of despair in the own lives and walking them to the light of freedom from those traumas that have hindered them from being the great person they are intended to be.   I reached into the life of a great biblical woman named Rahab of the Old Testament that was a prostitute in her generation, but through the providence of the God of Israel was instrumental in helping the Jewish nation strategize the demise of the great fortress Jericho.  Her life was rewarded with becoming the ancestor

How did you come up with idea for this book?

 As an expositor of the gospel and public speaker I was always referring to historical persons and realized that my life was so parallel to many of the women in scripture and the great black motivators of freedom that I had come to love and appreciate.

What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?

Timing and relevance.  So many were writing books which made my procrastination empowered and the need to believe that it was relevant.

Why do you write?

Initially my Father in the Gospel, Bishop Curtis Timmons ministered to me in the 80’s that I should write my story.  My own inhibitions prevented me from moving sooner and as time progressed the Spirit of the Lord impressed upon my heart the urgency to write.   With that prompting it became a memoir filled with tears, prayer, intercession and therapy.

What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?

The journey of life is a journey we all encounter and no one is alone in their experience, no matter how dark or lovely it may seem.  We learn through this book the grace of God through his interventions even during the time of danger when we think we are all alone.  We learn there are lessons in every trauma and misfortune.  We learn that those who are our caregivers may not know how to guide our lives or even care for us properly.  We learn that we are not lost; we just need to come to a place to realize the love of God and his outstretched hand.  We learn to forgive, we learn to grow and we learn to glow for others that have darkness and need to see the loving hand of God.

What inspired you to write this book?

Initially my Father in the Gospel, Bishop Curtis Timmons ministered to me in the 80’s that I should write my story.  My own inhibitions prevented me from moving sooner and as time progressed the Spirit of the Lord impressed upon my heart the urgency to write.   With that prompting it became a memoir filled with tears, prayer, intercession and therapy.

ABOUT THE BOOK: 

We must come to a place in our lives that our self-worth and value are esteemed and in unity with the Father’s worth for us. You too can resurrect from the ashes of your past, the mockery that crouches on the stoop of your incarcerated life, and resume a position to charge with aim and tenacity to get your life back!

The relevance of this book addresses the common thread of the wrong turns in life which man and women make when searching for their true identity and purpose for life. Our postmodern philosophy masks an old social outcast profession by bringing glamour to degradation and self-mutilation renaming it reality shows. Dr. Ezreaonne Jackson brings to the forefront how a life can spiral downward when the need to belong is mishandled and abused. A compelling and powerful memoir that has the potential to bring healing, hope, comfort and faith to the reader.
