Breathing Under Water

BOOK

The Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous is Americas most significant and authentic contribution to the history of spirituality, says Richard Rohr. He makes a case that the Twelve Steps relate well to Christian teaching and can rescue people who are drowning in addiction and may not even realize it. To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to breathe under water and discover Gods love and compassion. In this exploration of Twelve Step spirituality, Rohr identifies the Christian principles in the Twelve Steps, connecting The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous with the gospel. He draws on talks he has given for over twenty years to people in recovery and those who counsel and live with people with addictive behavior. Rohr offers encouragement for becoming interiorly alive and inspiration for making ones life manageable for dealing with the codependence and dysfunction (sin) rampant in our society.

Publishers Description
"A perfect writer on the subject of the Twelve Steps, Rohr] explains how the renowned AA program is preeminently spiritual and has the power to rescue people from the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction by helping them 'breathe under water' and discover God's love and compassion. Rohr identifies the core Christian principles in the Twelve Steps and connects them to the message of the Gospels. His easy-to-read book devotes a separate chapter to each of the steps and ends with a postscript that concisely addresses the question of human suffering with which addicts and their families are initimately acquainted. The deep communion and compassion formed by shared pain allows those suffering from addiction to reach out to help their fellow sufferers. Rohr draws on talks he has given for over twenty years to people in recovery and those who counsel and live with people with addictive behavior, offering hope, understanding, and encouragement to anyone dealing with the codependence and dysfunction rampant in our society."--Joan Clear, "Liguorian"
