Jesus, You, And Bill W
Introducing Persons in 12 Step Recovery to Christian Spirituality
Author: Rev. Paul Brunsberg
Persons in 12 step recovery have a dilemma. 12 Step literature recommends spirituality as a path to recovery and while there are many paths, some struggle with confusion around 12 step recovery and religion and the traditional church.
“If that be the case you may be suffering from an illness which only a spiritual experience will conquer. Well, that is exactly what this book is about. Its main object is to enable you to find a power greater than yourself which will solve your problem.” Alcoholic Anonymous (Big Book), third edition, pages 44-45.
This book is an attempt to provide original Christian spirituality, straight from Jesus and the Bible, without all the trappings of religion. It has chapters for:
- Bill W. and spirituality
- Jesus, Bible, history of the church (yes, even revealing the warts)
- Spiritual quotes which are life-giving gems
- Biblical truth, and spirituality, the futility of a “law” oriented religion
- Good books to read
- Suggestions on how to become a Christian
- And how to find a healthy church.
Jesus is presented, who offered people joy, peace, freedom, hope, forgiveness, grace, and a new life. St. Paul invites people to become a “new creation” in Jesus. All of these create a new reality, which is much healthier than the old reality of addiction.
