In the next few days, we will be releasing some short quotes from either A.A. Conference-approved books and literature, or from documented sources, or from some of my books which we pray will draw many into a greater appreciation and understanding of the real roots of Alcoholics Anonymous and Twelve Step Fellowships.
The quotes will come from Bill Wilson, Dr. Bob Smith, Anne Ripley Smith ("Mother of A.A."), Rev. Samuel M. Shoemaker, Jr.--a cofounder of A.A., Dr. William D. Silkworth, Jr.--one of the three major A.A. Step sources, and from others directly involved or contributors to A.A.'s spiritual program and development beginning with "old school" pioneer early A.A.--founded as a Christian Fellowship in 1935.
This year as some go to San Antonio to celebrate another A.A. anniversary, they can--if they wish--be among those who can carry an accurate message about the origins, founding, original program, astonishing successes, and changes in the A.A. Society.
