The Wide Variety of Religious Books in Early A.A.
I was delighted to see this comprehensive review of almost every Christian and other religious title that A.A. pioneers read in the 1930's. The author covers the information gained from his research of the books owned, read, and circulated among AAs by Dr. Bob, Anne Smith, Henrietta Seiberling, Clarence Snyder, and other early AAs. In day when a few AAs are trying to exclude 'outside' reading by claiming it is not 'conference approved,' here's a delightful compendium of the real, enlightened, searching A.A. at the beginning. Nothing can change that.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

An excellent guide to recovery reading
This book is an expansion of Dr. Bob and His Library because it includes the books that Dr. Bob, his wife Anne, Henrietta Seiberling, T. Henry and Clarace Williams, Clarence Snyder, and other early AAs read. I wanted a guide that would clue me in to good books the early pioneers read on prayer, healing, daily devotions, love, Jesus Christ, the Oxford Group, Rev. Sam Shoemaker, New Thought, and Bible study. And this was and is the book for me. It provides a complete and well-rounded guide to recovery reading when you acquire and use this 7th edition along with related titles like Making Known, Dr. Bob and His Library, Anne Smith's Journal, the Oxford Group and A.A., That Amazing Grace, and the Akron Genesis.Was this review helpful?
