Exploring the Spiritual Experience in the 12 Step Program of Alcoholics Anonymous

Jeff Sandoz, The Edwin Mellen Press (716-754-2788), $109.95

The author, who is a teacher, a licensed professional counselor and a columnist for the Annals of the American Psychotherapy Association, focuses here on the spiritual experience in Alcoholics Anonymous (AA), establishing spirituality as a core element of illness and recovery. He draws heavily on the experiences and writings of AA's co-founders. In the book's foreword, the editor of Alcoholism Treatment Quarterly calls the text "a humane and healing narrative with the ability to sustain a variety of pilgrims in their human journey."
