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.

    It Goes Deeper

    This book covers the 12 steps of AA and other recovery groups in a way that they apply to everyone. But more than this, the book goes deeper and doesn't just explain how to do the steps, but talks about why they work. Some insights from the teachings of Swedenborg (Lois Burnham was a follower of his teachings) add depth. Finally I see why these steps work for me.
