Also is an effective tool to help in overcoming an addiction.

I appreciate that the words of Jesus are in red and I also like having the Psalms and Proverbs included with the NT.

Besides the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, this neat little book also contains the New King James Version of the New Testament, including Psalms and Proverbs. The purpose of this compact paperback is to combine the spiritual teachings of The 12 Steps of A.A.'s Big Book, with the religious texts of Jesus, the disciples, and Paul. New Testament verses appropriate to each Step are highlighted for easy cross reference to show how they intertwine.
However, in some instances, I found the cross referenced verses difficult to associate with the corresponding Step.
This does not take away from the meticulous way the authors have put together their comparisons.
I would recommend this book to anyone who still has difficulty in seeing the differences between religion and spirituality, and who wish to live a life according to God's Will.

This is my third book that I have bought. I enjoyed it so much that I have given them all away. This last one I bought seemed to have a little bit smaller font and I did not like that. Older eyes need print that is larger or bolder for reading ease in lower lighting. Having the Bible coincide with the 12 Steps is exactly what can put you over for understanding and making some steps more clear. I appreciate that the words of Jesus are in red and I also like having the Psalms and Proverbs included with the NT. Wonderful addition to the book shelf. I am going to get another one to have and probably give away again. This time I will look for an older version that has the little bigger print. Dr Hemfelt has written other good literature along recovery lines.

Format: Paperback
Serenity is a bible for those in the twelve step recovery program. This is a red letter New King James Version with the entire New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs.

The first eighty pages explain the twelve step program. Scattered throughout the bible are examples and scriptural support for each of the twelve steps.

I believe the bible is an excellent book to live by, but especially for those struggling with an addiction. While I also believe the NKJV is an excellent translation, I think there are other translations, like the ESV for example, that maintain biblical accuracy, yet are a little easier to read and understand, especially for someone struggling with an addiction.

Overall, I would recommend this bible to anyone struggling with addictions or learning about the twelve step program.

this book was tremendously helpful and much more in depth than traditional 12 step literature in working my "steps". because all 12 step programs originate from a Christian movement; using this book which is the New Testament,Psalms,and Proverbs proved more "on target" . I would, and DO recommend this book to others I know in "the program" who are working their steps

Format: Bonded Leather
This is a bonded leather (black) 5"x7", 535 pages, New Testament and Psalms, New King James Version. The Bible contains a gift page in the front. It also contains an explanation of each of the 12 Steps of the AA program, and 7 page-long meditations on each of the 12 steps in relation to particular scriptures. Further, it lists and highlights in the margins dozens of other scriptures that pertain to each steo. This is a wonderful resource for anyone who's working the steps or who desires a deeper insight into the application of the scriptures in light of any kind of addiction. Highly recommended.

The Serenity Bible is an excellent source from my point of view to understand relationships and to grow as a person. It guides you to look at your life in places where you may have been condition to believe it is okay even though all personal peace and health is letting you know something is very wrong. I challenge anyone to take step four as outlined, write it out answering the questions honestly and then start at step one. I challenge you to do this even if you are a believer or a nonbeliever in God. This is a challenge that was given to me at a retreat several years ago and the results were positive changes that brought both peace and health. I took step four as outlined in the Serenity: A Companion for Twelve Step Recovery.
Try it for your peace and for your health.

I recently gave this as a gift to someone very dear to me.

An excellent resource for those seeking assistance in overcoming addiction whatever the addiction may be which is causing havoc in one's existance. A clear, easy to understand plan for journeying forward in serenity. Recommended for anyone who is sincere about being proactive rather than repeating cycles of unhealthy behavior(s).
