Here is a book that lays out the specifics of A.A.'s original focus. They believed the answer to their problems was in the 'Good Book.' They intensely studied the Book of James, the Sermon on the Mount, 1 Corintians 13. They even wanted to call their society The James Club. They regularly read Henry Drummond's The Greatest Thing in the World. And their Twelve Steps are heaped with Bible sources. This book has been the most popular book ever written by author Dick B.--a Christian, a recovered AA, and a Bible student, as well as historian and writer. He points to the specific Bible verses found in A.A. literature. He points to specific Bible words in A.A.'s Big Book--Creator, Maker, Father, Spirit. He underlines common A.A. phrases such as Faith without Works is dead Thy will be done and love thy neighbor as thyself. For those who want to know where the basic A.A. ideas came from, this is a must read. For those who want to work with A.A. literature as well as Bible literature, this is a must. For those who want to reach recovery by relying on the Creator, learning about Jesus Christ, and finding the truth of God's Word, this book is more than a must--it is an inspiring guide to cure. I love the book

What a great book to add to my collection. I wish everyone could read this book. The Bible (the good book)was the book the AA pioneers read everyday before the Big Book was written.
