“Courage to Change” The Christian Roots of the 12 Step Movment

Published by Hazelden. Authored by Bill P. and Dick B. The earliest book about Rev. Samuel M. Shoemaker, Jr. (cofounder of A.A.) and how his ideas fed through Bill Wilson into the very language and ideas of the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. This book helps those who want to know about the origins of the Steps, those who want to show others how to take the Steps as they were intended to be taken, and those who want to take the Twelve Steps as a means of recovering from alcoholism in the way A.A.’s Christian Founders planned when they worked up the Twelve Steps.
