A.A.’s Resemblance to First Century Christianity

Many observers of early A.A. said things like, “Why, this is first-century Christianity!” (See, for example, the A.A. General Service Conference-approved book, Alcoholics Anonymous Comes of Age, 148.) To study Apostolic Christianity in the Bible, read, for example: Acts 2:38-47; and 4:29-35. Anne Smith, wife of A.A. cofounder Dr. Bob, wrote: “Of course the Bible ought to be the main Source Book of all. Begin reading the Bible with the Book of Acts.” [See: Dick B., Anne Smith’s Journal 1933-1939 (3rd ed.), 82: http://www.DickB.com/annesm.shtml.%5D
