The twelve step addiction recovery process often comes in many variations and interpretations; while each variation may focus on different aspects of recovery, they all stem from the groundbreaking work of Bill W. and Dr. Bob Smith, the founders of the organization known as Alcoholics Anonymous. Twelve Steps to Spiritual Freedom: Understanding the Christian Roots of Twelve Step Programs aligns this 20th century construct with its roots in centuries old practices. This sensible approach brings together the deep spiritual tradition of Christianity to complement and support the hands-on, daily work of twelve-step programs. Interspersed with personal experiences, Understanding the Christian Roots of Twelve Step Programs identifies and contextualizes the natural connections between Christian mysticism and the wisdom of twelve step programs and makes this information usable for readers. With her intelligent and pragmatic approach, author Joanna Thyer speaks to those who struggle within twelve step programs and to the counselors, therapists, social workers, and family and friends who support their recovery efforts. Knowing the origins can make the journey through addiction recovery grounded, personal, and rooted in faith.

Illuminates biblical treasures of healing, which are sometimes neglected by the church. Addiction, personal weakness, and feelings of inadequacy are issues many face daily. In One Day at a Time, South African Pastor, Trevor Hudson recalls his own battle with a gambling addiction and how he overcame it through God's grace and vision for his life. Using a step-by-step plan for a lifetime commitment to change, One Day at a Time offers principles that will help readers learn to reclaim a sense of self worth and renewal in their lives. "If you study each of these steps carefully, you will see that they are deeply, though not specifically, Christian. Steps one, two and three invite us to give up our natural tendency to want to be in total control--to be managing directors--and instead to let God be God in our lives. Steps four, five and ten call on us constantly to examine our lives and to confess our wrongs. Steps six and seven prompt us to let God change us from the inside out. The eighth and ninth steps encourage us to mend broken relationships wherever we can. The eleventh step shows us how to grow in our relationship with God on a daily basis. Last, but not least, the twelfth step challenges us to share the hope of recovery with other strugglers and sufferers. Can you see how close these steps are to the spirit of Jesus of Nazareth and the writings of the New Testament?" (xvi) - Gift book for individuals needing an extra boost during a time of need - Individuals who struggle with worry, compulsive and addictive behaviors, battle with increasing stress and tension, or who sabotage relationships - Individuals who have feelings of guilt, regret, and self-condemnation - Individuals/Groups who feel their faith has become bogged down in pious clichés and empty ritual.

Claim the Spiritual Freedom That Waits Beyond the Suffering and Slavery of Addiction “One of the important similarities between AA and Jewish spirituality is the statement in Step 12, ‘to practice these principles in all our affairs....’ There is no dichotomy of sacred versus secular. Jewish spirituality applies to how we eat, sleep, work, socialize and recreate. There is nothing that is external to the relationship of human being to God.” —from the Foreword A major new Jewish contribution to 12-Step spirituality. This easy-to-read exploration from a Jewish perspective is the first comprehensive approach to successfully integrate classic Jewish spirituality with the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and other recovery resources. With clarity and passion, Rabbi Paul Steinberg masterfully weaves traditional Jewish wisdom with the experience, strength and hope of AA. He draws on Jewish resources—theological, psychological and ethical—that speak to the spiritual dimension of the disease, and shows how the principles of Jewish spiritual recovery directly align with those of the AA 12 Steps. Along the way, he courageously shares his own personal struggles with alcoholism and addiction in a way that will help others find guidance and a new life path—and stay on it.
