Overview

We can begin to heal the brokenness in our lives when we courageously look at our limitations and, through God's strength, deal with them in constructive ways. In this revised edition of his popular book, including an updated study guide, Vernon Bittner invites us to discover how to live with wholeness of body, mind, and spirit. To assist all who are searching for a more fulfilling life, he has reinterpreted the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous in the light of the Christian faith and applied them to daily living. These are examples of the questions the book leads us to consider:- How can we play active roles in regaining and maintaining our spiritual, mental, and physical health?- How can we strengthen our spiritual lives when we feel weighed down by many limitations?- How are our emotions related to our recovery?Dr. Bittner writes not only from his own experiences of coping with life's problems, but also from his insights gained from his work as a psychotherapist and chaplain. With care and skill, he takes us through the various steps that lead to healing and recovery.

    Miracles do happen!

    You only have to read a few pages and then reflect on it with another person or in a group setting. I have experienced much emotional healing and continue to use this book as a life long guide with new emotional hurts in my life!
