Description



Book Synopsis



The founders of the modern recovery movement, including Bill Wilson, Bob Smith, and other early AAs, were deeply influenced by a handful of inspirational authors, from whom they received practical guidance, key insights, and concrete ideas. Their explorations of inspirational literature and useable spiritual methods gave rise to the program of spiritual self-help now practiced around the world as the twelve-step tradition.

Now, some of the core books that both inspired and were produced by the early twelve-steppers and recovery pioneers - including the first edition of the 1939 landmark Alcoholic Anonymous - are collected in this powerful resource, The Recovery Bible.

Here are early writings by the visionaries of recovery. Their work retains all of its impact and life-changing power - now at the ready for study, immediate guidance, and a lifetime of re-exploration in this one volume.

The Recovery Bible includes:

-Alcoholics Anonymous, the original 1939 landmark

- The Greatest Thing in the World by Henry Drummond

-In Tune with the Infinite by Ralph Waldo Trine

-The Mental Equivalent by Emmet Fox

- As a Man Thinketh by James Allen

-The 23rd and 91st Psalms

-Religion that Works by the Rev. Sam Shoemaker

-The Varieties of Religious Experience by William James



About the Author



Bill Wilson (1895-1971), AA cofounder, was the chief voice and writer behind Alcoholics Anonymous--often called "The Big Book"--on which he collaborated with many figures, including his wife and intellectual partner, Lois Wilson (1891-1988); his AA cofounder, Bob Smith (1879-1950); pioneering AA member Henry Parkhurst (1895-1954); and a wide range of early AAs who contributed stories and strategies.

Emmet Fox (1886-1951) was a New Thought leader, minister, and healer widely known for his books The Sermon on the Mount and Power Through Constructive Thinking.

James Allen was born in Leicester, England, in 1864. He took his first job at age 15 to support his family after his father was murdered while looking for work in America. Allen was employed as a factory knitter and a private secretary until the early twentieth century, when he became known for his motivational writing. His 1903 work As a Man Thinketh earned him worldwide fame as a prophet of inspirational thinking and influenced a who's who of self-help writers, including Napoleon Hill, Dale Carnegie, and Norman Vincent Peale. Allen died at age 47 in 1912.

Henry Drummond (1851-1897) was a Scottish evangelist with a strong background in science. He is widely known his writings Natural Law in the Spiritual World and The Ascent of Man.

Older brother of novelist Henry James, William James (1842-1910) was a philosopher, psychologist, physiologist, and professor at Harvard University. James has influenced such twentieth-century thinkers as Richard Rorty, Jürgen Habermas, Michel Foucault, and Julia Kristeva.
