Firmly based on biblical teaching, this book has provided spiritual help to Evangelicals, Protestants, and Roman Catholics in recovery. Now in a revised edition, subtitled, Following Jesus on the Path of Recovery, this book thoroughly integrates biblical teaching with the Twelve Steps to provide a solid spiritual foundation for Christians in recovery from addiction. Written also for those who practice the Twelve Steps, but are not Christians, the familiar language of The Gospel and the Twelve Steps can provide a palatable means for those Twelve-Step practitioners who are resistant to Christianity to develop a spiritually vital relationship with Jesus Christ. The Gospel and the Twelve Steps weaves scripture directly into the text and adds highly relevant biblical commentary from several widely known, beloved authors whose wisdom has stood the test of time. Including C.S. Lewis, George MacDonald, William Barclay, and others, these teachers' words relate directly to the Twelve-Step program of recovery. The combination of ample scriptural references, thoroughly integrated into the text, and highly relevant commentary, makes The Gospel and the Twelve Steps unique among books for Christians in recovery.
