Download a FREE writing guide to accompany this eBook. Send your Barnes and Noble purchase order confirmation number to the publisher and the PDF file will be emailed to you. A groundbreaking book when published, “The Twelve Steps for Christians” is a powerful resource for merging the practical wisdom of the Twelve Steps with the spiritual truths of the Bible. It combines recovery and spirituality to give Christians an effective way to work a twelve-step program with Jesus Christ as their Higher Power.

The authors have a theoretical understanding of the Twelve Steps as well as a personal understanding as a result of their own recovery journey. They know from first-hand experience how God can use the spiritual essence of the Twelve Steps to transform broken lives, heal emotional damage from the past, and mend shattered relationships. The book includes “Common Behavior Characteristics” that help one identify with their hurtful behavior.

The book includes a meeting format and review questions for each step. The format is very effective when used in support groups. It includes ideas and guidelines for choosing and working with a recovery partner. Other important aspects of the book are; “Step Overviews” to assist in understanding, working, and preparing the step; “Helpful Hints” to aid the reader in areas of prayer, meditation and Bible study; and “Key Ideas” in each step to reinforce central concepts.

The book adapts the Twelve Steps that were written over seventy five years ago when Alcoholics Anonymous was founded. This program teaches us how God uses the healing power of the Twelve Steps as a way to restore the lives of countless individuals. Members of Alcoholics Anonymous carry the healing message to others, acknowledging that they know what it feels like to be broken by life and mended by God. It is dedicated to all those who have found healing through the twelve-step program, and who continue to choose to share their experience, strength and hope with those still searching.

For companion books refer to “Meditations for the Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey, and “Prayers for the Twelve Steps - A Spiritual Journey.”
