Overview

A study of the immense spiritual reading of the Bible, Christian literature, and Oxford Group books done and recommended by Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder, Dr. Robert H. Smith.

From the Author:

The first edition of Dr. Bob's Library was the first book I wrote on the spiritual roots of Alcoholics Anonymous. The basic materials came from my interviews of, and correspondence with Dr. Bob's children, Sue Smith Windows and Robert R. Smith (who are now 81 years of age). The word in A.A. was that Dr. Bob's extensive library had been given away; but I found that his two children each had about half of his books. I examined them, obtained copies, and listed their authors and subject matter. These are the books that Dr. Bob read, studied, recommended, and circulated among early A.A.'s and their families. They cover the Bible, Bible meditation books, prayer, healing, the Oxford Group, religion and the mind, and the works of Bob's favorite authors such as Henry Drummond (The Greatest Thing in the World), Glenn Clark, E. Stanley Jones, Oswald Chambers, and so on. If you want to know where the basics for the ideas A.A. took from the Bible came from, this book will answer your questions and also show you the deep "spirituality" in the readings by Dr. Robert Holbrook Smith, co-founder of A.A. The Third Edition adds to the books discovered, adds to the bibliography and annotations, and adds to the knowledge of Dr. Bob's youth.

    The value of knowing Dr. Bob's reading and books he circulated among early AAs

    This book helps the student or the alcoholic both to study and to learn the success formula used in early A.A. That formula included prayer, healing, Biblical readings, and other spiritual literature recommended by Dr. Bob to, and circulated among, early AAs. The books which author Dick B. found in Dr. Bob¿s library are of very practical use today. They include the writings and philosophies of such diverse authors as James Allen, Starr Daily, Glenn Clark, Emmet Fox, E. Stanley Jones, Oswald Chambers, and Rufus Mosely. And many of their contributions enable readers to understand why early A.A.¿s success formulae were so successful. This book is a perfect fit for any individual from any walk of life who wants to learn about what worked for early A.A. For the topics such as prayer, Bible chapters, spiritual literature, and divine healing played an absolutely essential role in Dr. Bob¿s own successful work in helping over five thousand to recover in early A.A.
