Jerry Dunn wrote the popular book God is For the Alcoholic. Here Dick B. shows how the first three AAs--Bill Wilson, Dr. Bob Smith, and Bill Dotson--all said God cures alcoholism. God does and we won't let you in on the phrase about that which is in the Big Book, page 191, and states the 'golden text of A.A.'Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

'The Lord has been so wonderful to me, curing me of this terrible disease that I just want to keep telling people about it.' How many AAs and recovery programs today know that Bill Wilson and A.A. Number Three both used this expression. A.A. Number Three called it The Golden Text of A.A. And you can find the details on page 191 of Alcoholics Anonymous, 4th ed. Yep. It's alive and well today. And if you thumb back a few pages to Dr. Bob's story, you'll see that Bob also twice commented on the cure the pioneers had found. There's lots more in this priceless little book. But it captured the attention of the managers of the Wilson House. It became the subject of one of Dick B.'s Heritage Seminars there. And its words and theme need to be hammered home to those wandering souls that are teaching newcomers more and more often that you can believe in anything you want in A.A., or in nothing at all. Baloney! Not unless you prefer to drink.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
