About The Author:

Dick B. is an active, recovered member of Alcoholics Anonymous; a retired attorney; and a Bible student. He has sponsored more than one hundred men in their recovery from alcoholism. Consistent with A.A.’s traditions of anonymity, he uses the pseudonym “Dick B.”

Dick is the father of two married sons (Ken and Don) and a grandfather. As a young man, he did a stint as a newspaper reporter. He attended the University of California, Berkeley, where he received his A.A. degree in economics with honors, and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa in his Junior year. In the United States Army, he was an Information Education Specialist. He received his B.A. and J.D. degrees from Stanford University, and was Case Editor of the Stanford Law Review.

The author became interested in Bible study in his childhood Sunday School and was much inspired by his mother’s almost daily study of Scripture. He joined, and later became president of, a Community Church affiliated with the United Church of Christ. By 1972, he was studying the origins of the Bible and began traveling abroad in pursuit of that subject. In 1979, he became much involved in a Biblical research, teaching, and fellowship ministry. In his community life, he was president of a merchants’ council, Chamber of Commerce, church retirement center, and homeowners’ association. He served on a public district board and was active in a service club.

In 1986, he was felled by alcoholism, gave up his law practice, and began recovery as a member of the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. He was completely cured in 1986. In 1990, his interest in A.A.’s Biblical/Christian roots was sparked by his attendance at A.A.’s International Convention in Seattle. Since then, he has traveled widely; researched at archives, and at public and seminary libraries; interviewed scholars, historians, clergy, A.A. “oldtimers” and survivors; and participated in conferences, programs, panels, and seminars on early A.A.’s spiritual history.

He is regarded as one of the top historians writing about Alcoholics Anonymous and it’s Biblical roots; in addition to this present volume, Dr. Bob and His Library: A Major A.A. Spiritual Source (Third Edition), he has published many other widely read books on the Alcoholics Anonymous program and it’s Biblical roots.
