Announcing Dick B.'s New Book:
A.A. Literature Frequently Mentioning God, His Son Jesus Christ & the Bible: The Long Over-looked Big Book Personal Stories
Our new book is written for the many A.A. Christians who don’t know how many A.A. Conference-approved personal stories about early A.A.'s "Christian fellowship" are overlooked today and lacking in authority and application today.
This new book is a “must” if you want to know and apply the power and love of God in A.A. fellowships. We show the damage wrought by language about early A.A.’s supposed flying blind, trial and error, and uneducated groping. Christians have lost touch with early cured Christian AAs
A.A.'s own Experience, Strength and Hope: Stories from the First Three Editions of Alcoholics Anonymous has ended claims that early stories are not “conference-approved” and not relevant today. Long-removed early stories have precise descriptions of how pioneers successfully followed the Akron program found in DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers on page 131. They often make explicit references to God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible.
We discuss a handwritten insertion in the printer’s manuscript that caused many newcomers to assume no belief in God is importtant, that they can choose “a god of their own conception," or that they should believe an absurd name for a higher power such as light bulb, chair, or Santa Claus will suffice. But none of these ideas is representative of A.A. before 1939. The personal stories toss a reliable life saver to today's newcomers daring to seek Almighty God's help.
