Bill Wilson never got sober or even worked a program. He switched his drug of choice from booze to unfamiliar women in early recovery. He was a self centered 13th stepper. He also enjoyed a nice sobriety break while tripping on LSD so much his wife and Dr. Bob had to perform an intervention. That is why I take little stock in Bill's thoughts on the program he plagiarized outright from the Oxford Group. AA's grounding in Christianity and its dogmatic requirement to commune with a God also known i [...]

My newest recovery book gifted to me by my AA meeting. I won it in the weekly raffle. I'm reading it some at a time. For me the boundary between secular spirituality and generic Christian religionism can be pretty shaky at times in 12-step groups. AA, being the most tradition-bound, has the biggest problems. My guess is that Bill W. was to much tied to the Oxford Group background that he couldn't see the wisdom of letting go of all that GOD stuff. Words like Creator, He, His, Him, Thee, Thou, Th [...]

Beautiful and inspiring! Came To Believe is collection of stories by A.A. members who write about what the phrase "spiritual awakening" means to them. Through reading these stories I found hope! That hope provided me the ability to completely surrender unconditionally and honestly to myself that I am an alcoholic and I can recover if I just don't pick-up a drink one day at a time, get a sponsor and go through the 12 steps, go to meetings and sponsor other alcoholics. Just like Step 12 states, "H [...]

Really powerful testimony and moving stories written by AA members describing their spiritual awakening. This puts the Burning Bush theory to the acid test and teaches me that though the experience of recovery doesn't come in the Hollywood or fancy package that our imagination tends to create, the miracles of awakening and transformation are not those kind of myths. They are much deeper and better than those fluffed up ideas we tend to imagine and hope for. We get much more than our limited mind [...]

It's a good book for expanding your thoughts on spirituality if you keep an open mind. Some of the accounts push religion a bit, but you have to bear in mind that they are a collection of stories told by different people.

Another from my recovery shelf. This is a compilation of several stories from those in 12 step recovery regarding the quest for a higher power. This small volume displays the diversity that can be found in a spiritual program. For anyone who is stuck in the God gunk of AA you may find an unexpected answer within these pages. Once again this one is a keeper. It is definitely not a read once and done.

I read this book while starting my graduate internship at an outpatient addictions treatment clinic. It tells great stories of how people in 12step fellowships came to believe in a higher power of their understandingeven atheists!

I have read this book many times. The quality of writing varies, as it doeswith all AA books-- since members are writing and they are sharing personal experience,not their writing chops. Never-the-less, it is a staple in my 12-step reading.

Fabulous book. I was not raised with any religion so having a book of non-denominational spiritual experiences was perfect for me. I could not pick a favorite story from this book if I tried but I walked away feeling as if God was tangible and something I could have in my life.

This is a very good and well written book by Bill Wilson one of the co -founders of AA. This book explains the spiritual as compared to a religious basis for recovering alcoholics in regard to the 2nd step.
