Item description for 12 Steps F/Christians (Updated) by Friends in Recovery & Rpi...
Overview The Twelve Steps for Christians, Revised Edition is a powerful resource for merging the practical wisdom of the Twelve Steps with the spiritual truths of the Bible. This combination of recovery and spirituality offers Christians an effective way to work a traditional Twelve-Step program and name Jesus Christ as their Higher Power.
The authors have a theoretical understanding of the Twelve Steps as well as a personal understanding as a result of their own recovery journeys. They know from first-hand experience how God can use the spiritual essence of the Twelve Steps to transform broken lives, heal damaged emotions, and mend shattered relationships.
The Twelve Steps for Christians, Revised Edition has a number of new elements that enrich an already effective tool. Among them are:
--Ideas for choosing and working with a recovery partner --"Step Overviews" to assist in understanding, working, and preparing for the step --"Helpful Hints" to aid the reader in areas of prayer, meditation, and Bible study --Expanded examples for "Common Behavior Characteristics" --"Key Ideas" in each step to reinforce central concepts.

I Read Before Every Serenity Groups Meeting I Conduct!!! Aug 19, 2004
I read "The Twelve Steps for Christians: Based on Biblical Teachings" before every Serenity Groups Meeting that I conduct in our church. It always reminds me of new truths that I can share with others in our Serenity Groups Meeting. I discovered this book after I revised and expanded my book "Prayer Steps to Serenity," and I wish I had found it sooner. My book is different in that it teaches you how to actually pray through the 12 Steps and the Serenity Prayer in a book with lots of white space for notes and prayers, but it is just as strongly bible-based as "The Twelve Steps for Christians: Based on Biblical Teachings." this site.com sells "Prayer Steps to Serenity" too, ISBN 0595313043. You can learn more about my Serenity Groups at SerenityGroups.org, which has many free resources for personal use and groups.
Thanks for Reading! L.G. Parkhurst, Jr.
The Twelve Steps for Christians Jan 8, 2002
My husband and I previously read this book and were very impressed. We are both in recovery and were avid believers in Jesus Christ. All of the traditional recovery books were vague in their spirituality, and we could relate and grow from this book. We currently use this book in our ministry, which is a recovery ministry in our church. We see many other people being blessed from it as well. I think people that have not had to deal with different addictions/bondages in their lives, could benefit from the steps/tools that are available in this book!
Truly a blessing from God. Oct 9, 2001
This is exactly what I have been looking for. What better sorce to go to than the Word of God to look for healing. He is the author and finisher of our faith.
Build a Group on the 12 Steps for Christians Jun 27, 2001
My wife and I joined a 12-steps Sunday school group using this book about a year ago. We both have had to deal with alchoholism in our families, as well as a lot of other hurdles. The book and the class have been a very good way for us to finally work through these and many other issues. The book and the class have facilitated a great deal of healing for me.
Some of our class members are in recovery for alchohol or drugs, others have various issues, but all are welcome. Our class is taking it slowly, it takes about 3 weeks to work through each of the steps. The group adheres to the principles of confidentiality and annonymity, to the point that my wife and I don't discuss the class if one of us misses and the other attends. On the other hand, the class has become a source of spiritual and emotional strength for many of us.
I strongly recommend this book (and it's companion workbook) for anyone seeking to organize a Christian 12 step program, and/or to expand their church's adult ministry. Go with God's grace.
non-denomaddictional resource is perfect for church group May 20, 2001
The Twelve Steps for Christians book is an invaluable tool for anyone interested in beginning a 12-step ministry within their church. I've coined a new phrase of "non-denomaddiction" to refer to the vast variety of people's struggles which can benefit from the reading of this book. Our group reads one step a week with the remainder of the hour spent in discussion of what we read. I am pleased to report that our group consists not only of recovering alcoholics or drug addicts, but also of people dealing with food addictions such as anorexia and bulimia. Other non-denomaddictions include adult children of alcoholics, obsessive controlling behavior, anger management, recent divorce, battles with depression and difficult parenting issues. The class is developing in to a fellowship and members truly look forward to each meeting and feel uncomfortable if they miss one. This type of fellowship is the missing bridge that people in the throes of pain and suffering need to feel Gods love working in their lives. I recommend this book and it's more in-depth companion "A Spiritual Journey". Just remember that building this type of fellowship takes great patience on the part of the facilitator. Members need time to grasp the concepts written within the steps before they are able to assist in building the ministry, after all, anononymity is the spiritual foundation of any 12-step ministry and it takes a great leap of faith to be willing to be visible.
