The Golden Book of Tolerance


(Formerly the Golden Book of Charity)
Author: Father John Doe

“To thoroughly understand how this change takes place in a human being, we must first understand the meaning of love.  There are many erroneous definitions of love in the modern world.

To many people, love is synonymous with lust; to others it is merely dependent upon human emotion; and there are some who think that love only aims at possession.   All of these conceptions of love seem oblivious of the fact that such “love” is in reality selfishness – the desire to have, to possess, to satisfy self.  It is true that true love also ultimately seeks possession, but primarily it seeks to give.”

Hazelden is extremely proud to once again offer this early classic recovery series. The Golden Books series is composed of fourteen booklets written by the late Father Ralph Pfau, known originally as Father “John Doe” who was an immensely popular lecturer and author.  These treasured booklets offer thoughtful, positive advice on almost every human experience.  Helpful in examining character defects or in exploring the realm of spirituality, these booklets are firmly grounded in the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous.
