Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Based on the 12 steps of Alcholics Anonymous, this book is designed to be used as a tool in small study groups that are working on spiritual growth by breaking free of destructive behavior. Spiritual exercises such as daily prayer and self-examination are suggested after a discussion of each of the 12 steps. A revision of Unlocking Your Spiritual Potential: A Twelve-Step Approach (Abbey, 1990), this work makes references to 18th-century scientist and theologian Emmanuel Swedenborg, whose works, along with the Bible, are the basis of a Christian denomination called the New Church, of which Schnarr is a minister. His encouraging insights are illuminated by his own honest struggles with personal failure and addiction.
