Roger C’s detailed and interesting history should be eye opening to all who read it. He and fellow agnostics clearly do not want to destroy or flee from AA, but want only to return it to the flexible fellowship it was under Bill W.’s guidance and to make their groups an accepted part of the larger AA fellowship. At the end of the book, Roger describes the first meeting of a new agnostic AA group in Toronto. At the end of the meeting, members held hands and recited the Responsibility Declaration: “I am responsible. When anyone anywhere reaches out for help, I want the hand of AA to always be there. And for that I am responsible.” Roger’s history proclaims the many who have labored to make that declaration come true for agnostics and atheists.
I purchased this book because Roger C. described his background as having been the 'resident atheist' on the religious studies faculty at McGill University. With that background I was hoping for a nuanced and intellectual discussion of what it means to be an atheist in a culture dominated religious types. Mostly what the book conveys is grievance.
I appreciate that Roger C. has taken on a difficult subject but 'A History of Agnostics in A.A.', is not a history as much as it is a polemic. I was hoping for a more thoughtful argument.
