I dip into this AA World Services publication daily. I find it best to read one story at a sitting and reflect on the comments and experience of the recovering person -- most of the short reflections are peoples' spiritual experiences in recovery and they range from the "bolt of lightening" to the slow emergence of everyday spirituality. Keep it with your morning or evening meditation book(s) and dip into it. You'll "keep coming back."

Format: Paperback
I love this book. I'm a twelve-stepper who came to the program from a Christian fundamantalist childhood by way of a period recovering from that.

One thing I came to believe from reading this book was that a higher power is not comprehensible by me or anyone else living or dead. Many traditions have been established that attempt to essentialize something greater than the individual in ways that suit their own needs.

I'm fortnuate enough to be very well educated. I'm not into fairy tales. I do, however, experience many things about life that I cannot explain. This book helped me to understand that whatever shorthand various humans have assigned to the phenomena of life and their experiences is just that. Some power greater than myself, however, is a simple concept.

(I'm a literary sort and rate this book within the context of recovery literature and books that have made an impact on me. The prose is not where it's at with this one.)

This is a great little book - very thin, an easy read. It is full of first-person stories relating how each person came to believe in a higher power. It is inspiring and enlightening - it shows many different ways that people have grappled with this issue and what happened in their lives as a result.

Came to believe that a Power greater than myself could restore me to sanity. Finding a God concept is very difficult for some AA just coming to the program. this book of shared experience tells how many have made it over this hurdle.

This is a good book to read and ponder. Addicts need help that is at least as powerful as the disease of mind and body that wants to destroy our lives. Help is out there and in here. Read this book.

Great companion piece to go along with the Big book and the step book. Other people's perspectives and what they've been through.
