In reading Don Wilkersons new book, First Step, I am convinced that it will benefit pastors, addicts and anyone who wishes to be involved in remedying the downward-spiraling drug epidemic! It is full of wisdom, bringing the God-factor to the forefront as The Remedy to the problem. The author has spent 54 years working with Teen Challenge, helping to rehabilitate thousands of addicts. He knows firsthand what works! ----Jesse Owens, President, Global Renewal, Inc.
Don Wilkerson, with 50 plus years of rehabilitation experience as the Co-Founder of Teen Challenge (the largest drug and alcohol program in the world), has hit the mark in this inspiring book, First Step. Its chapters reveal truths about addictions and provide a detailed, Biblical prescription of freedom from the bondage and consequences of life-controlling problems. With the severe increase of drug and alcohol addictions and the massive abuse of prescription drugs affecting every age group and social status, once again Brother Don has responded to the cry for healing and deliverance. He provides insights for recovery that very few people in the world are able to capture. ----Pastor Jimmy Jack
Having known Pastor Don for over twenty years, I can say that his kindness, his concern for people and his commitment to seeing lives changed by the power of God has never wavered. To read this book is like chatting with him over a good, hot meal where he'll tell you the truth, with genuine fatherly love. ----Pastor Charles Simpson
