Synopsis: The very first, and the most popular study of A.A.'s roots in the Bible. A.A. co-founder Dr. Bob had often stated during his lifetime that the basic ideas of A.A. were taken from their study of the Bible. So too that the Book of James, the sermon on the mount, and 1 Corinthians 13 were absolutely essential to the early program. He said that the answers to their problems were in the Good Book (as he called the Bible). This book explores every observable source and appearance of Bible ideas in the Big Book which Bill Wilson wrote four years after A.A. was founded. It has become a regular shelf item among those who believe in God, understand the importance of the Bible, diligently seek to apply the teachings of Jesus Christ in the march to sobriety and a life of love of service thereafter. The book is a page-turner for those who, like the author at first, had never realized the specific sources of A.A. in the Bible, and the specific Bible language in A.A.'s basic text, talks, and literature of the early days.

About the Author: The author is a writer, historian, retired attorney, Bible student, and active recovered AA who has sponsored more than 100 men in their recovery. He has devoted 18 years of his life to researching, reporting, and disseminating early A.A. history and successes. He has published 32 titles and more than 180 articles on A.A. history. Clergy, scholars, historians, and old-timers in A.A. have often called Dick B. the leading A.A. historian today.
