Reviews - What do customers think about Prayer Steps to Serenity The Twelve Steps Journey: New Serenity Prayer Edition?
Challenging Book Jan 3, 2007
I am Bert Newton, pastor, Creekside Baptist Church, writing through my wife's account, as our purchases are made through it. L.G. Parkhurst, Jr. has made a powerfully challenging statement through this book. It causes one to focus on the practical life change that will occur with Christ at the helm of anyone's 12-step program. He helps a person to realize that to be truly effective, it takes the "new creation" power that comes from the Lord Himself living in us and helping one overcome their addictions and/or ungodly behavior. I read it as a book, but know that it would work for anyone to use for devotional study.
The New Serenity Prayer Edition is Larger and Better Jul 29, 2006
Be certain you buy the "New Serenity Prayer Edition" of this book, for it has 12 new daily readings on The Serenity Prayer keyed to each of the 12 Steps for a total of 84 readings (7 readings per week for 12 weeks on each of the 12 Steps). The new edition is also 68 pages longer than the older edition, but sells for the same price as the older edition. The book is easier to read and study with a Workbook on the 12 Steps, called The Twelve Steps Journey, as a part of the book. Unfortunately for some, there has been some confusion between the two editions, and the older edition should be showing out of print, but there are still some older copies being sold. I did change the title from "the Twelve Step Journey" to "the Twelve Steps Journey" and I did add the subtitle to the new edition: "New Serenity Prayer Edition." I hope this helps you buy the newest edition, and I am thankful that so many gave such wonderful reviews for the earlier edition. The latest edition is just better and larger.
A Truly Beautiful Book!!! Dec 4, 2004
Prayer Steps to Serenity is truly beautiful inside and out. The cover and the reviews drew me into buying the book. Then, I was surprised to see the picture of the Tree that began each new step take on new growth and leaves as I read through the book.
From my experience, this book has captured and presented the basic keys to Serenity and changing your life. My Sponsor and I often talk about the spiritual aspects of our Fellowship and I bought her a copy after she saw mine.
This book saved my life and my family Sep 11, 2004
The first edition helped me find serenity and sobriety in a way only God could have directed. I was on the brink of destruction and this book helped me find my way back. The influence was overwhelming. I have also read the recent, expanded edition and use it to help maintain my serenity and sobriety.
"Prayer Steps" is so powerful, it helped me tie my belief in God and Christianity to the Twelve Steps in a way that changed my life. Using this Twelve Step Journey along with my Faith, I have managed to return to sanity and keep my family and friends.
What a WONDERFUL resource! Aug 21, 2004
This book is a truly wonderful resource for anybody in recovery! I purchased Prayer Steps to Serenity a few weeks ago, and intend to buy another copy soon so that I have a copy to loan to friends and acquaintances.
This book is so much more than a daily devotional! Each week ends with a series of questions to ponder, and the back of the book includes information on forming and leading a Serenity Group. Included is also a "Group Journey Guide" as well as a "Personal Journey Guide."
The author has truly gone above and beyond with this book. He seems truly committed to helping people in their recovery journeys as is evidenced by this book, and all of the free resources he has on his website. (www.prayersteps.org) He has also been working with alcoholics completing their 5th steps for almost 30 years, according to the back cover. I wholeheartedly encourage anybody in recovery to purchase this book. It will not disappoint! You may even consider creating your own Serenity Group, as the author has suggested. I certainly hope to do so at some point.
