Item description for More God: From the Twelve Steps Into Deeper Faith by Constance Bovier...
Overview Memories of a scratchy starched dress, a cold church and baffling Sunday school lessons provided little foundation for a practical faith, so its not surprising that Constance Bovier drifted far from religion as an adult. But when Twelve Step recovery programs intervened, offering relief from problems she couldn't solve alone, she got more than she bargained for - more than she even wanted at first - a slowly dawning relationship with God. More God traces Constance Bovier's journey from wary agnosticism into a non-judgmental, all-encompassing Twelve Step spirituality and, finally, into vibrant Christianity. She writes openly about her joys and sorrows, her traumas and triumphs and, with a keen eye for the divine significance in the details of daily life, distills perceptive lessons from her experiences. These universal lessons and the resilient belief she shares offer valuable guideposts for others who've been circumnavigating their own questions of faith, just as she once did. Constance Bovier's story reaches far beyond the Twelve Step recovery community to provide encouragement and inspiration for anyone who senses a soul-deep longing, anyone struggling with growing faith...anyone hungry for more God.

Comments on "More God" by Connie Bovier Jan 1, 2005
Ms Bovier's book is a must read for anyone looking for more of a spiritual nature than the 12 steps provide. It traces her progress from "enlightened agnosticism" within the 12 steps to "More God". It gives her "experience, strength and hope" without proselytizing.

Reading this book was a wonderful experience. I read it one sitting, not really intending to. Once I started I was hooked. Fascinating journey by a terrific writer. Honest, highly enjoyable, thought provoking, loving, tender and very open. I marvel at the author's ability to write of some very painful times in her life with such profound authenticity. I was deeply touched by her honesty and vulnerability. I look forward to more works by Constance Bouvier.
God will be well pleased! Jun 25, 2002
As a substance abuse counselor, a teacher in a community college substance abuse track and a Christian, I would think that God would be well pleased by Ms Bovier's work. This book sat on my coffee table for nearly 3 weeks before I opened it this past Friday..........I finished it Sunday afternoon and have already recommended it to several friends, students and peers. Peace, Love, Joy to you.
Surprise Jun 23, 2002
I went into this book with the expectation of learning more about the Twelve Step program and how it can slowly urge people to a Christian faith. I came out with sooo much more! This author opened her heart so wide, I fell in head first and came out seeing myself in a new light. The recounting of her own soul searching encouraged me to do the same. I learned so much about myself and was challenged in ways I never dreamed. I encourage anyone who seeks to grow spiritually or emotionally to take the challenge that More God presents. It is more than a book. You will feel as though you have taken a journey hand-in-hand with the author and it is a life-changing experience.

A friend told me about this book & I feel blessed they did. I share my review in the hope it will encourage you to purchase this book - you will be glad you did.
I'm completely captivated and in love with this author!! I've read both her books - each is fantastic and highly recommended. Ms. Bovier writes in a delightful, loving, conversational, inviting, down to earth, realistic manner-- simply perfect!
I can't write this review fast enough!!
It's seldom indeed that I find myself so delightfully absorbed in a book. I was hooked by the end of page one, which is a rarity for me - not only did I finish the book but I did so in one-sitting (stayed awake until 5:00am on a work day!! believe me when I say that it was truly worth it.)
Seldom have I been so moved by an author that I "insist" someone purchase & read a particular book - yet I find myself doing just this with regards to this author. I find myself telling people they "really have to read this book, and you're going to want to share it with everyone you know". Subtle suggestions have turned into continued inquiries & knudges... have you finished the book? what did you think? isn't it a rewarding read? fabulous? witty? fun? whom have you told the book?
MORE GOD will be enjoyed by everyone, whether they consider themselves religious, spiritual, or neither. Whom among us hasn't at some time questioned their spiritual journey? Whom among us hasn't at some time, had a loved one, self or friend, who needed extra encouragement and possibly wondered about their higher power?
People who may not be "readers" will read this book, love it, and recommend it to their circle of influence.
If you're like me, before you finish reading MORE GOD you'll have a huge list of people you can't wait to tell about this book. Maybe like me, you'll find yourself keeping a running list of whom you've given the book to (to avoid duplicating your gift to the same person).
P.S. I even loaned my copy to a friend, something I do not do. The message of MORE GOD was simply to powerful to sit on my shelf.
