Dick B. on How the Early AAs and their Akron Teachers Relied on the Bible for Alcoholism Recovery
Three parts of the Bible were not only favorites of early AAs and their Akron teachers. The material from these three parts surfaced (without attribution) in A.A. Conference-approved literature - The Co-Founders of Alcoholics Anonymous: Biographical Sketches Their Last Major Talks; Alcoholics Anonymous, 1st ed., 1939; Alcoholics Anonymous, 1st ed., 1939; and DR. BOB and the Good Oldtimers .
Boost your knowledge and experience as to how early Akron A.A.'s Christian Fellowship used these three parts of the Bible virtually every day.
