One thought on “Grace in Addiction: The Good News of Alcoholics Anonymous for Everybody

  1. Jason Kanz

    As a fan of the Mockingbird blog, over the past few months, I have seen occasional references to a book written by John Zahl entitled Grace in Addiction The Good News of Alcoholics Anonymous for Everybody 2012 As a Christian psychologist, this book piqued my curiosity Certainly, addictions are of interest to psychologists though many of us do not work intentionally or exclusively with addicts Further, I confess that despite my knowing that Alcoholics Anonymous AA has a Big Book and 12 steps , I [...]

  2. Cindy Marsch

    I have read this book in bits and pieces over a couple of years and find every time I dip into it, as is the case with recovery and the steps in general I like the idea that the rooms of 12 step recovery provide a different door into the Christian faith, and as Zahl maintains, garden variety Christians have a lot to learn from those who have wrestled visible sins and weakness in public ways Those in recovery can teach us all a few things.

    John Z has given us a great book So often, books about addiction are heavy on psychology, light on spirituality, and extremely light on theology This book melds together addiction and theology in a readable and very insightful way At times very humorous and it becomes clear that he writes from the perspective of someone who has been bound by the throes of addiction and yet has experienced the grace of recovery He gives a great commentary on the Twelve Steps and clergy would do well to read this [...]

    A really interesting comparison of the Alcoholics Anonymous 12 steps with tenets of Christian theology The subtitle The Good News of Alcoholics Anonymous for Everybody says a lot about the book It was helpful to me even though I have not struggled with addition to alcohol or drugs, and I think it would be very helpful to those that do As someone who has himself been helped by AA and is now in ministry, the author is in a unique position to make these comparisons Thoughts about ways the AA operat [...]

  5. Nita Lovelady

    I knew practically nothing about twelve step programs before reading this book Even though we may not struggle with alcohol or drug addiction we are all addicts in our own way It is so appropriate that Grace is the theme John Z has a solid theology supporting his writing This book has been helpful in dealing with someone close to me.

  6. Scott Sjoblom

    An incredible resource for anyone struggling with addiction or who knows someone who is which is pretty much all of us Here is what the church can learn from AA and what AA could learn from the church.
