Alcoholics Anonymous co-founder Bill W. once wrote that this collection of excerpts from his writings was “meant to serve as an aid to individual meditation and a stimulant for group discussion,” and since its publication in 1967 it has done that and more for millions of A.A. members around the world. Hundreds of brief passages — excerpted from the Big Book and other A.A. literature — address the principles of gratitude, spirituality, acceptance and a host of other themes central to living a serene life free from alcohol. With a topical index to point readers to subjects of particular interest, As Bill Sees It is an easy-to-use resource of inspiration, comfort, and humor that provides a sense of belonging for those on the path of recovery. Whether seeking insight on a specific topic or opening the book at random, readers will find that there is always more to discover. The passages are perfect for discussion in group settings or for personal reflection. As Bill Sees It, formerly published asThe A.A. Way of Life, has been approved by the General Service Conference.

Family members and friends of alcoholics will find this book of readings a valuable resource into what their friend is learning as he or she attends meetings. It helps to answer the questions of why go to A.A. meetings and how this program can help alcoholics and their loved ones understand their illness. Alcoholic counselors and others in health related fields can use the readings an important tool in helping their clients attend A.A. meetings. Counselors are no longer able to require clients in treatment to attend A.A. meetings, but can make recommendations concerning the value of those meetings. These readings show what can be learned in A.A. meetings Alcoholics will discover in this book new insights into their disease. These readings challenge some of the statements made in the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous but remains true to the ideal that more will be revealed. The author uses references from popular children stories (The Princess and the Pea to illustrate how sensitive alcoholics sometimes are), to great literature, (Odysseus struggling against the call of the Sirens to show how alcoholics also struggle against the appeal of alcohol), to references from everyday life, (trying to get rid of fruit flies illustrating how difficult it is to get rid of character defects) are also used.

This collection of readings moves through the calendar year one day — and one page — at a time. For every day, a favorite quotation from the literature of Alcoholics Anonymous is followed by an A.A. member’s personal reflection, making for daily reading that is at once inspired and inspiring. While focusing broadly on the Three Legacies of Recovery, Unity and Service, this volume offers experience, strength and hope on specific topics such as willingness, faith, making amends — themes that recovering alcoholics must address each day — and reminds us that we are never really alone in Alcoholics Anonymous. Whether using the day’s reading as a source for their morning meditation, discussing it with a sponsor or sharing it with their home group, many in Alcoholics Anonymous consider Daily Reflectionsto be a critical tool in their “spiritual toolkit.” Features a topical index to help guide discussion. Daily Reflections has been approved by the General Service Conference.

When author Gary L. began his recovery journey from alcoholism at age thirty-one, he was emotionally, mentally, and spiritually bankrupt and had been contemplating suicide for about a year. He had everything to live for but was unable to see it. Hopelessness and despair were dark clouds over his life. Early one morning, while in a drunken stupor, he cried out to the God he’d turned his back on at age ten. Gary said later, “Early in recovery I discovered that God had never turned his back on me.” In Hope for Alcoholics, Addicts, Inmates (and Those Who Love Them), Gary, through a series of letters to a prison inmate, shares his story of recovery and a renewed relationship with God. Gary’s daily letters to Matt describe the journey out of the darkness into a life he never thought possible. The writings interpret, translate, and synthesize the pain, disillusion, anger, and rebellion of his own early life into a present-tense testimony of praise, glory, and gratitude to God. Hope for Alcoholics, Addicts, Inmates (and Those Who Love Them) discusses Gary’s experience with the Twelve Steps of AA and how they have influenced his life. Accented with scriptural passages, it shares discoveries he made about himself, God, and life.

The purpose of this work is to show that Christ-Centered recovery through biblical counseling produces genuine change in the heart of the addict. It proves that the only way for the addict to be free is to find a power, a power that is beyond themselves, that can free them from addiction. That power, is the power of the Holy Ghost, the power of the risen indwelling presence of Jesus Christ. But the only way that this power can rest upon them, they only way it can deliver them, is for them to confess their weakness and inability to resolve the dilemma of addiction on their own.

This book is a fascinating, in depth look at who Bill W. really was and how, from his own painful past and a strong bent for anonymity, he emerged as a powerful presence on the American scene. On a cold night in February 1951, Mel B. set out from Pontiac, Michigan, to hear a talk by Bill W., cofounder of Alcoholics Anonymous. Like many who had found strength and sobriety an A.A., Mel felt a great debt of gratitude to Bill W., as well as a deep curiosity about the sort of man who had helped bring about such a vast personal and social movement. After nearly fifty years, during which time Life magazine named Bill W. one of the century's most important Americans. Mel B.'s search for Bill W. culminates in this book: a fascinating, in depth look at who Bill W. really was and how, from his own painful past and a strong bent for anonymity, he emerged as a powerful presence on the American scene. Over the years, through interviews with Bill W. and with Bill W.'s friends, colleagues, and family, Mel B. discovered not just one Bill W., but seven: the power-driving achiever, the fixer, the individualist, the entrepreneur, the communicator, the peacemaker, and the founder/statesman. All of these facets of Bill W. come together in this portrait of a remarkable man, which is also the story of his profound effect on not only the author but also countless others caught up in the search for a better life.

Dick B. is today regarded as the leading A.A. historian. He is a writer, Bible student, retired attorney, and active recovered member of the A.A. fellowship. He has brought to the history table: (1) His strong belief in the Creator, Christianity, and the Bible as the main source book for truth. (2) His long and fervent work with newcomers in helping them to overcome their alcoholism with the power of God. (3) His talents in writing and research that emerged from his work at the University of California where he received a Phi Beta Kappa key, his editorship of the Stanford Law Review, and his vigorous practice in writing and presenting legal briefs before many many courts. This mid-point treatise had been followed by and added up to 33 A.A. history titles so far. This book is foundational.
