Overview

By any standard of scholarship, historical approach, publishing, or even news reporting, a purported history of Alcoholics Anonymous and the Twelve Step Movement that fails to provide details on the Book of James, Jesus's Sermon on the Mount, and 1 Corinthians 13 should be and should have been rejected as false, misleading, and incomplete.

    A.A. Heartland - This book details early A.A. studies

    For a number of years, author Dick B. has presented pieces on early A.A.'s Christian Fellowship, its stress on Bible study and prayer meetings, and the importance of three segments of the Bible. These three segments are: (1) Book of James. (2) Jesus's Sermon on the Mount. (3) 1 Corinthians 13. And Dr. Bob said at a talk in Youngstown, Ohio that AAs start their day by reading one of the three. He also said that all three were absolutely essential in the original program. Dick B. therefore felt it was specially valuable for AAs, 12 Steppers, and Christians to have before them a verse by verse study of each of the segments, and a specific correlation of those verses to portions of A.A.'s Big Book and Twelve Steps that borrowed from them. This James Club book was a long time in coming because it necessitated an examination of many different A.A. sources--Anne Smith's Journal, the devotionals, Dr. Bob's library, the Oxford Group literature, Quiet Time literature, Step Guides, and Big Book study works to bring it all together. Dick also felt it important to include materials discussing the Book of James itself and the probable authorship of it by the Lord's brother. He also added materials on A.A.'s United Christian Endeavor roots which help to explain how the Bible achieved such a prominent role in the early fellowship. And here's a book that allows you to do what the pioneers did--study these books themselves. Have a ready guide to the relationship between the verses and A.A. writings. Use it as a tutorial for your study group. Realize it can be a catalyst for organizing Big Book/Bible study groups now that there is an in depth study of these three core Bible sources of A.A. ideas. I welcomed the new insight Dick's presentation gave me on patience, God's wisdom, temptation, being a doer of the Word, the significance to James of 'love thy neighbor as thyself,' the core idea of submitting yourselves to God and resisting the devil--knowing the devil will flee from you, the important 5th chapter on prayer and healing. Then the materials in the Sermon that were direct sources of Step ideas. And finally the principles from Corinthians, such as kindness, truthfulness, tolerance that have become embedded in A.A. thinking and language.

    Understanding the Essential A.A. Roots

    As a Marine vet and Bible student, I have found this book particularly valuable because it explains the principles of A.A. and recovery so well. It covers the Book of James and A.A. This means you can see in its discussion, its study of verses, and its comparisons with A.A. language: (1) Resisting temptation. (2) Seeking God's guidance. (3) Being a 'doer' of God's will--not just a hearer. (4) the royal law of love thy neightbor. (5) The faith without works is dead catalyst of A.A. service. (6) The famous 'tame your tongue' origins of Dr. Bob's warning. (7) The origin of 'submitting yourself to God.' (8) The origin of 'resisting the devil.' (9) The assurance that if you humble yourself in the sight of the LORD, the LORD wlll lift you up. (10) The warning about eliminating 'grudges.' (11) The importance of James 5:16--elders praying for your healing, confessing faults, relying on the efficacy of prayer. It's all there. And then there's the equally wonderful comparative study of A.A. and Jesus' sermon on the mount and Paul's important study of lvoe in 1 Corinthians 13. A great, practical, inspiring book assuring God's help.
