Item description for Victims and Sinners by Linda A. Mercadante...

More than one million Americans participate in nearly 50,000 Alcoholics Anonymous groups in America. Addiction recovery groups such as A.A. often rely on religious themes in their work, offering a form of spirituality as a way to deal with life's problems. Many recovery groups borrow selectively from theology because the full Christian doctrine of sin can be alienating for those in recovery. Linda Mercadante offers a theological critique of addiction recovery programs and proposes an alternate view of addiction that avoids both excessive blame and excessive victimization. This book is for pastoral counselors, clergy, laypersons, and recovery group members wanting to reassess addiction recovery from a theological perspective. It offers a wake-up call to the church to take seriously the need to establish recovery groups and to construct a language for better dialogue.

Publishers Description
A thorough examination of the spiritual and theological assumptions of both addiction and recovery. The first assessment of this depth about recovery groups -- groups in which more than a million Americans participate.

Reviews - What do customers think about Victims & Sinners?

The real victim is the reader!  Jun 22, 1999
There is no way to tell if this book is any good because it is written with such complicated language that it is incomprehensible. We would be greatly served by Dr. Mercadante if she were to write on the same topic in language that at least a college graduate could understand. I couldn't help wondering whom Dr. Mercadante was trying to impress in choosing her words; I say this because the book is advertised for everyone, including the layman. Unless you want to spend weeks in your dictionary (and it had better be a good one) in an attempt to understand this book, I suggest you pass. On the other hand, anyone with a strong education in theology may appreciate whatever it is that this book is saying.
