The 10 Year Anniversary of Rev. Kelly R. Jackson’s first published work is now available! Originally released in 2006, Temporarily Disconnected sparked conversation and round table discussions all throughout the Detroit area. Now, to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of its release, Rev. Jackson has revised this classic.
Still with its classic plain red cover (it would come to be known as “the red book”), this book is even more relevant in 2016 than it was in 2006. What’s inside the book proves that you really can’t judge a book by its cover. Truly, this work was ahead of its time.
Temporarily Disconnected is not a relationship and family “how-to” book, rather it is a the perspective of the author on the challenges facing Black relationships and families. It’s not a quick fix book or something to be read and forgotten. It’s a manual. Something that shouldn’t be read in a weekend, but rather absorbed over time and referred to over and over for those that may be in the struggle.
In 2006, this book was a glimpse into author Kelly R. Jackson’s struggle to reconcile all these different things as he struggle with the dating game. In this 2016 Revised Edition, he’s now a married minister of the Gospel. While the vast majority of this book remains unchanged, this author ends this edition with a chapter on marriage and a message of restoration. Whether you’re still going through your single days or you’ve made it through, Temporarily Disconnected offers excellent words of caution and encouragement for the Black community.
