People like to say things like: get to the issue, what's the point, what are you really saying. "NothinsGonnaStopIt" does this and more. Along those lines, some things are mostly SUBSTANCE, others mostly STYLE. "NothinsGonnaStopIt" is both SUBSTANCE and STYLE. It is a complete and total "dot connecting experience."
Somebody once said that “Story is the Language of the Heart”. All of us deep in our bones long to have our stories told, and long to be included in greater, deeper, wider story.
Bill Jackson understands this. Part of “his story” is to introduce to the rest of us “The Story”.
Through his NothinsGonnaStopIt! seminar Bill explains how God has been writing a story of hope and redemption for all the world, and (here’s the crazy part) He’s inviting us to have a role in it. (To think that God is inviting me to take part in redemptive history is amazing.) Bill is a true blessing to the Kingdom of God, and his seminar will change the way you read and appreciate the Bible. It has truly inspired and stirred my soul.
If you take following Jesus seriously, then you must learn to tell “The Story”. NothinsGonnaStopIt! gives you the capability to do this. Understanding “God’s Story” has better helped me understand “my story”, which I use to explain to people “their story”. Stories connect us. Stories move us. Stories bring meaning and purpose to our lives. God has given us the “Greatest Story” of all. So we must go and tell the story, and remember NothinsGonnaStopIt!
Well done Bill your work brings Glory to God.
Grace and Peace,
Ever since I was exposed to Bill Jacksons Labor of Love with NotinsGonnaStopIt, my desire to go deeper into Gods word has become an instant reality! This has impacted my faith in an incredible way, the bible has called us to go into the world and preach the gospel and this is the ultimate tool for a comprehensive way to share your faith! If you were like me, all I grew up hearing was the stories but nobody explained to me the entire big picture of Gods redemptive plan for all humanity and because of that I never knew the Lord and His love for me. This is going to effect the heart of everyone who hears this. I guarantee thousands will come to the faith if they could only be exposed to this beautiful work.
Telling the entire biblical narrative as a cohesive power story is how the gospel was meant to be preached. Its like we were all called to be mechanics on an engine of a car, and if all we have are some parts and we dont understand how they fit together as a precision instrument, we arent going
to get very far my friends. All the parts were created to be part of the whole.
Jax thank you, I as well as many others are eternally thankful.
Wrestling with the storyline of the Bible for the first time has radically shifted the way I look at life. The Scriptures take on a new meaning when you see them in their wholeness. Seeing for the first time the connection of the smaller stories to the larger narrative really brought the Bible to life for me. And it helps me understand more the reality of the here and now, living as a Christian in America in 2008, and how the Spirit through the Scriptures guides my life as I struggle with the Christian journey.
After working in full-time ministry for over six years, I enrolled in a Master's program in which Bill Jackson was one of my instructors. As is often the case with those who minister to others, I had reached a point of routine and mediocrity - repeating what I had learned and losing the joy of my faith. Unknowingly, I had assumed a burden for moving the gospel forward which was never mine to bear. Bill Jackson revealed to me that God's plan is moving forward regardless of my role or gifting, and that it is only for my joy that God invites me to participate with Him in the work of His kingdom. I have renewed faith and joy in ministry and am once again seeing the fruit of God's work through me. I am forever grateful.
I have heard Bible stories and read and studied the Bible all my life, but I have never heard the story of the Bible told the way that Bill does. It's as if the pieces of a puzzle come together in one amazing and beautiful picture. The intellect and study Bill brings to the story is fascinating, and the passion he has for the story is contagious. My hope is that every man, woman, and child will hear and be captured by the incredible story of God reavealed in His Word!
Starting with his book "The Quest for the Radical Middle", Bill Jackson has continued to be a leader in the Vineyard Movement. Now, with NothinsGonnaStopIt, his vision is being realized and the Christian faith is about to be brought in to a new era. This is the equivalent to a Christian "Shock and Awe" campaign.
