Reviews - What do customers think about Letting God - Revised edition: Christian Meditations for Recovery?
Great for morning meditation Jul 10, 2006
Several years ago, I began the practice of reading and reflecting every morning, using "day" books. This is one of the best books I have used. The New Testament of the Bible is one of the two greatest books on recovery ever written (the Big Book is the other), so the Bible verse and related reflection by the author are a perfect combination, and it works well with the "24 Hour Book" and "Daily Reflections", and probably any other daily reflection book you care to use. Pick it up!
A must have for spiritual guidance Jul 27, 2005
This is an excellent book for daily reading. It's spiritually uplifting and an encouragement for addiction recovery. It gives moral lessons and does it without a preaching attitude. It's written from the heart and I recommend it for any one that is seeking a more spiritual life.
Inspiring! Strengthens and encourages. Oct 31, 1999
This inspiring daily devotional strenthens and encourages the reader. The author provides practical insights into scripture and makes the Bible come alive for living in today's world.
Also included are prayers for recovery and a handy Index of Steps and Slogans. Letting God is a "must have" for anyone who is recovering from addictions of drugs, alcohol, gambling, porn, sexual addictions etc.
Excellent,subtle, "Spirit-filled", gentle leadings. Jun 17, 1999
About the best aide to 12th step growth I've used so far. Not "heavy-handed" and not "religious>" Only gentle leadings... as those of a Shepherd or a Loving God as He manifests Himself here too. Quiet, gentle musings - great for 11th Step work. I recommend it heartily!
An excellent daily meditation book using the twelve steps. Oct 6, 1997
"Letting God" is an excellent twelve step,daily meditation book. The author, A. Philip Parham, is an Episcopal priest. He has intentionally returned to the twelve steps' original roots, which are in the Christian gospel, so the devotional meditations are unreservedly Christian in nature. (Since I am a Baptist pastor I found this welcome and spiritually refreshing.) Each devotional takes only a couple of minutes to read, and most of them include a very interesting story to illustrate one of the twelve steps.
