Noted A.A. Historians Reviews of Dick B.’s The Good Book and The Big Book

“The Bible and the ‘Big Book’ of Alcoholics Anonymous are not mutually exclusive, as the author, Dick B., carefully shows. The A.A. book which has helped millions with their addictions is deeply indebted to, and profoundly influenced by, biblical language, images, and themes gleaned directly from the Bible or indirectly from Bible teachers like Rev. Samuel Shoemaker, E. Stanley Jones, and Oswald Chambers. A.A. has received much from biblical Christianity, and biblical Christians can receive much from Dick’s new book about spiritual growth and victorious living.”

Rev. Charles B. Puskas, Jr., Ph.D.
Author, An Introduction to the New Testament

“Dick’s exhaustive research gives us a clear picture of how Dr. Bob, Anne, Bill W., and the early A.A.s used the Good Book to help thousands recover”.

Ray G.
Archivist, Dr. Bob’s Home, Akron, Ohio

“We use Dick’s book in all our counselor training centers. It is an invaluable resource.”

Jean LaCour, Ph.D.
Dean, The N.E.T. Training Institute

“We’re excited to have this book for scholars of A.A. that explains A.A.’s roots in the Bible!”

Ozzie and Bonnie L.
Managers, The Wilson House, East Dorset, Vermont

“Anyone seeking to learn the spiritual roots of Alcoholics Anonymous will find Dick B.’s publication, The Good Book and the Big Book, an invaluable resource. Dick has done a monumental job of finding and documenting the prime sources of A.A.’s life-renewing power.”

John F. Seiberling
Former United States Congressman
Son of Henrietta Seiberling, an early A.A. “founder”
