The Good Book-Big Book Guidebook

How to Include the Creator’s Impact on Early A.A. in Recovery Today

This is a working guide book to Dick B.’s most popular and widely distributed book on the roots of Alcoholics Anonymous in the Bible. That leading Christian recovery book today is The Good Book and the Big Book: A.A.’s Roots in the Bible. Thousands have read The Good Book and the Big Book; and hundreds have phoned me in Hawaii saying they’ve read that book and want to start a Big Book/Bible study fellowship among their recovered and recovering alcoholic and addict friends. And, to facilitate that mission, The Good Book-Big Book Guidebook was published and is now available to all by print on demand format as well as electronic book format. It can readily be found and purchased on Amazon.

Specially prepared by A.A. author and historian Dick B. as a guide to study groups, recovery programs, sponsors, and individual AAs who want to use the strong points of the A.A. Fellowship, Big Book, and Twelve Steps in conjunction with those vital tools the early AAs took from the Bible and used to achieve their remarkable healings and cures. This book is a practical “how to.”

It begins with the newcomer’s entry into a recovery fellowship. It maps out the appropriate qualifying interview, determination of the newcomer’s serious desire to quit, his identification of others in his plight, hospitalization, and launching out with the “absolute essentials” from the Bible’s Book of James, Sermon on the Mount, and 1 Corinthians 13.

It makes very clear the importance of viewing a real divinely aided recovery approach in the following light: abstinence; resisting temptation; relying on the Creator; accepting Christ; fellowshipping with like-minded believers; obeying God’s will by living the law of love and eschewing sinful conduct; growing in fellowship with God, His son, and other believers through Bible study, prayer, seeking guidance, and studying Christian literature. All to the end of loving and serving the newcomer to the glory of God.
