This is the definitive Christian book on the Twelve Steps. Miller compromises neither the Twelve Step program and its unique dynamic nor the Biblical principles of the body of Christ in this insightful and honest work. Anyone struggling with problems of whatever nature can find guidance and encouragement in these pages. The questions at the end of each chapter are an excellent way to "work the steps" - again and again. This book has become my "second Bible."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Our church staff recently presented a seven-part message series based on Miller's book and it had a profound impact on our congregation (New Life Christian Church, Centreville, VA, see newlife4me.com). We made the book available for our folks at our information table and it was the best received book we have ever used -- running slightly ahead of Lee Strobel's Case For Christ. It was so popular and there was so much interest in it that the book and the message series led to starting a couple of Celebrate Recovery/Hunger For Healing groups for those working through their own "hurts, habits, and hang-ups," including some who had never acknowledged having a problem other than some vague recognition that there was "sin" in their lives. Miller's book has been a perfect companion for our recovery groups. I highly recommend it for anyone struggeling with control issues -- those willing to admit their own lack of self-sufficiency and ready to return God to his rightful place as Creator and Lord of the Universe.

Format: Paperback
A perfect book for you who is working the steps in any Twelve Step Program - AA, Al-Anon, NA, OA or other... The book goes through the steps in a very pedagogic way from a spiritual perspective covering problems related to all kinds of problems of addiction and sin. Problems you can have even after you recovered from your primary disease. In the end of every chapter and step Keith Miller gives you questions to work with. He also covers aspects of sponsorship and problems with drawing lines/boundaries towards others. In doing so he clearly talks from his own experiences as an recovered workaholic and sinner. Gorskis' "Understanding the Twelve Steps" and Joe's & Charlie's "the Big Book Study" gave me an basic understanding of the Twelve Step Program, but this is my favorite book when it comes to getting deeper understanding of lives basic problems and to the spiritual side of the program. I "must" for anyone wanting to grow spiritual, even if they haven't worked the steps before.

I read this book after I had worked through the steps, but I wish I had read it before. Miller does a great job breaking down each step and applying it to his own life. If you thought the steps were just for alcoholics, think again. This book will open your mind to behaviors that keep you stuck in the insanities of life. If your new to the steps or if you have lived them most of your life this book hits the spot.

Format: Paperback
Are you hungry? Hungry for healing? What a wonderful book.

Here's twelve step book for people addicted to control of their lives.

What's that? Too much self control can be a problem?

It can be, if you'd rather yield your life to the Higher Power!

Echoing the previous reviewer, it's easy to read, difficult to take....

...and a journey well worth taking.

This book is for anyone addicted to sin.

Special emphasis is placed on the sins of control, anger, and resentment,

although those addicted to mundane vices such as drugs, alcohol, sex or food

can benefit from this book too! :)

Format: Paperback
Miller shares from his own life experience how the Twelve Steps (adopted from AA) are relevant to anyone today who is seeking to overcome the power of "Sin Disease" or spiritual sanctification. Great book to use either in a group setting or individual reading. Because this book touches tender spots, it is "easy to read, but difficult to take." Plan on working the recovery steps in a new way that may take up to several months to accomplish

Format: Paperback
This book deals with a lot of issues that hadn't been dealt with, from a Christian's point of view. I recommend this book highly for ALL 12 step programs. The videos are a very effective tool also. They really answer some questions that I needed answering. I would also like to know if this will ever be available on cassette? I feel that would a very effective tool, not all can take the time to sit and watch a video but most of us drive or have a cassette player of some sort. That would be such a blessing to people. Thanks for writing this book, Mr. Miller and thanks to the people that saw the need,and published it. END

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By James Suarez on November 19, 2010
Format: Paperback
Long before Celebrate Recovery popularized the Twelve Steps as a Christian Model for Spiritual Growth, Miller had laid out his work on the Twelve Steps as a model for Christian Growth. This book is by far, the most under-recognized work on the Twelve Steps and by far the best work on the Steps from a pure Christian perspective. All Christians should follow the path of the steps or something that bears a close resemblance. The idea that there are "basic sinners" and "habitual sinners" aka addicts is a false and prideful belief. As Miller states, the sin nature is at the root of all sinful behavior which manifests itself into different issues. By working the Twelve Steps we have an articulated model of how to live as a Christian. I give Miller's work two thumbs up for his audacity to challenge traditional Christian thinking in America and include "sin" into his theology. We take for granted, the sinful human condition, and just believe that believing we are a Christian is good enough. However, God requires much more and by reading this book, you can embark on a personal journey with God to overcome the reality of your sinful nature. It will change your life as it has done mine.
