The Golden Book – The Spiritual Side


Author: Father John Doe

“With this spirituality and sanctity in mind, we can easily understand that even the oft used term “spiritual angle” or “spiritual side” is a misnomer.  As one outstanding member once remarked, “Spiritual SIDE?  The whole program is spiritual.”  And those who decry it or who so naively remark that they can accept all of the program but the “spiritual side” are woefully ignorant of the meaning of spirituality.  Their statement is a contradiction in terms.  As a member once remarked to the writer after a long attempt to discredit the “spiritual side,”  “There is no doubt but that my seven years of sobriety is a miracle. You figure out that one.”

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.
