By M. Duvall on July 25, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I got this book yesterday and finished it before finally going to bed.
I laughed, I cried and I cheered for this amazing woman who was telling
her very personal story of not only her private life, but her journey with
God. Unlike Denise, I was not raised in the church, but have been searching for a way to connect with god. By reading this account of
her life and marriage, I feel like I found a start at that connection.

I've long admired Alan Jackson's talent, and have admired the fact that
these two were able to put their marriage back together after their
much publicized separation almost a decade ago. But, this book provided
me with a new appreciation for the woman "behind" the man. I'm glad
that Alan realized, before it was too late, what a prize he had.

Although this book is largely about God, it is not presented in a heavy
handed or difficult to follow way. By sharing her personal story as
she has, Denise allows those of us that are searching for the kind
of peace she has found with god, to at least chart a path on our
own journey.

I highly recommend this book.

This is a unique, encouraging book. In a world where celebrity divorces and family breakdowns happen all the time, it's pretty cool to see a famous marriage that has been pulled out of the fire.

Denise is honest and humble in telling the Jackson's story, admitting her faults and mistakes, and it makes the lessons that she writes about all the more compelling.

Also, it's worth mentioning that the book contains a CD with two songs by Alan: "It's All About Him" and "That's the Way." I think this book is the only place to get them right now.

For Alan Jackson fans, the biographical information is interesting. It is also encouraging to read about a celebrity couple that has kept their marriage together through tough times, especially when so many couples choose to bail out these days. It's a story of learning to forgive and how God can heal our hearts and our relationships. For Christian readers, the best part of the book is in the latter pages, where Denise describes how she finally "gets it" and realizes how important it is to put Christ first in your life. Her list of resources is good, too and would be especially helpful to newer Christians.

I only gave this book three stars because it left me a little dry. It was a turn off to read the frequent, detailed descriptions of their extravagant lifestyle. If I had picked up a secular book on another celebrity, I would have expected that sort of thing, but not in a book that is supposed to show us "It's All About Him". It would have sufficed for her to have just said that she and Alan have been blessed materially beyond their dreams, and left it at that. Instead, she seems to define the timelines of their life based on material things. Here are just a few examples she talks about - their mansion, three vacation homes, private planes, personal employees to do all her work, full length fur coats, a five and a half carat ring that reached her knuckles, the matching mother/daughter Mercedes, Alan's 19 car garage and statements such as, "Alan always made sure I had a new Cadillac to drive." Comments like that added nothing to the content of this book. Instead, it was a distraction.

When I first heard about this book by Denise Jackson, wife of country superstar, Alan, I thought it was just some sappy celebrity wife talking up her fairy-tale romance with her celebrity husband. Rags to riches, rise from nothing to material super abundance, Stand by Your Man drama, where a woman belittles or martyrs herself for some adulterous lout, does not appeal to me. What kind of a title is "It's All about Him", anyway? I couldn't believe any woman would be so self-deprecating, so much at loss for her own identity, to say that her world completely revolved around her husband...and then broadcast it to the world. I couldn't have been more wrong.

I'm a book snob. There was no way I planned on buying a book like this, one that I looked down my nose at. It wouldn't be "deep enough" for me. Pffff. Seeing a piece of an interview with Denise Jackson while I was at the gym one day started to change my mind.

Apparently, it wasn't about *him* meaning her husband... it was about Him, meaning the Lord Jesus Christ. Still, what could some celebrity wife tell me about that which I couldn't better learn from Lewis or Tozer? Upon reading another article about the book, I discovered... maybe a lot.

I ordered the book. Amazon couldn't ship it right away, so busy with reading other things, I put it out of my mind. Until it arrived yesterday. As is my usual habit, I read a few pages in the beginning, flipped to the back of the book to read then end...and read a few pages in the middle. I was floored. Here was a woman who claimed no great writing skills or powers of persuasion, and yet was digging deep into my spiritual dead spots, watering a desert wasteland, reminding me and awakening me to my developing complacency.
