“I’ve written this book to encourage and motivate others, no matter their age or life journey, by sharing my life experiences and illustrating God’s grace and the value of believing in yourself and recognizing your spiritual gifts,” says Jackson.

In the new bookThe Life and Legend of Robert (Stonewall) Jackson: Body Builder, Wrestler, and Survivor: My Battle with the Vietnam War, Drugs, and Prison” (published by iUniverse), author Robert Jackson takes an introspective look at his battle with drugs, prison and the Vietnam War. From the high of playing professional football for the Oakland Raiders to the low of prison, Jackson takes the reader through the ebbs and flows of his life.

The book details the mistakes and wrong choices that Jackson made, and how he rose from the abyss by rediscovering a connection and a dependence on God to turn his life around. The reader will be enthralled by Jackson’s journey from the small town of Gilmer, Texas, to being a young Army recruit who fought in Vietnam and dealt drugs in Georgia, and then finally to understanding the error of his ways and realizing that he could not reach his full potential without the help of God.

“I’ve written this book to encourage and motivate others, no matter their age or life journey, by sharing my life experiences and illustrating God’s grace and the value of believing in yourself and recognizing your spiritual gifts,” says Jackson.
