"Stick with the Winners!" Publisher Brief for Release

Stick with the Winners! shows step-by-step how to establish or modify A.A. or Christian Recovery meetings which include information on the roles played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in early A.A. It answers: (1) “How can we conduct 12-Step meetings that both honor A.A.’s existing Traditions, Steps, and techniques, and at the same time allow us to talk about Jesus and the Bible?” (2) “What do we do when someone says, ‘No, you can’t talk about Jesus or the Bible at an A.A. meeting’?” (3) “How can we organize, list, and hold an A.A. meeting using studies of A.A. history, the Christian origins of A.A., the “old-school” program of Akron A.A., and the foundational tools of  today’s  Twelve Step Fellowships?” (4) “How can our 12-Step group persuade newcomers that it is important for them to know and try to apply today the principles and practices of First Century Christianity, described in the Book of Acts, and used by the early A.A. ‘Christian fellowship’ in Akron?” Stick with the Winners! suggests: Begin with A.A. General Service Conference-approved literature that actually tells about and endorses “old-school” A.A., such as The Co-Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous pamphlet and DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers. Share the informative statements about early A.A. that are already in print and available today from Alcoholics Anonymous World Services, Inc., and from the AA Grapevine. Then it shows how, with God’s help, to organize, format, resource, and conduct your real early “old-school” A.A. meeting.
