The Twelve Steps embody the Bible’s core teachings concerning God’s redemptive relationship with humankind, from salvation to evangelism. They begin with an admission of human shortcomings and a profession of faith in God’s power, love and forgiveness—the essence of justification. The Twelve Steps go on to encourage continual confession of wrongdoing, submission to God’s control and proper conduct toward others—the principles of sanctification. Finally, they encourage habits of devotion, responsiveness to God’s will and sharing the message of recovery with others—the basics of biblical Christian living.
“The Twelve Steps for Christians” book is a powerful resource for merging the practical wisdom of the Twelve Steps with the spiritual truths of the Bible. It combines recovery and spirituality to give Christians an effective way to work a twelve-step program with Jesus Christ as their Higher Power.
The authors have a theoretical understanding of the Twelve Steps as well as a personal understanding as a result of their own recovery journey. They know from first-hand experience how God can use the spiritual essence of the Twelve Steps to transform broken lives, heal emotional damage from the past, and mend shattered relationships.
The book adapts the Twelve Steps that were written over seventy five years ago when Alcoholics Anonymous was founded. This program teaches us how God uses the healing power of the Twelve Steps as a way to restore the lives of countless individuals. Members of Alcoholics Anonymous carry the healing message to others, acknowledging that they know what it feels like to be broken by life and mended by God. It is dedicated to all those who have found healing through the twelve-step program, and who continue to choose to share their experience, strength and hope with those still searching.
