In this hope-filled approach to spiritual and personal growth, the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous are uniquely interpreted to speak to everyone seeking a freer and more God-centered life. This special rendering makes them relevant to those suffering from specific addictions-alcohol, drugs, gambling, food, sex, shopping-as well as the general addictions we wrestle with daily, such as anger, greed, and selfishness.
