Stick with the Winners!
How to Conduct
More Effective 12-Step Recovery Meetings
Using Conference-Approved Literature

By Dick B. and Ken B.

Have you ever heard or been told in a 12-Step recovery meeting:

Stick With The Winners! How to Conduct More Effective 12-Step Recovery Meetings Using Conference-Approved literature

“You can’t talk about Jesus and the Bible here.”

“Jesus (or the Bible) is an ‘outside issue.’”

“The Bible is not ‘Conference-approved.’”

“Talking about Jesus (or the Bible) is against ‘the Traditions.’”

So have we! Are the claims above true? Find out in Dick B.’s latest title:

Stick with the Winners!  How to Conduct More Effective 12-Step Recovery Meetings Using Conference-Approved Literature: A Dick B. Guide for Christian Leaders and Workers in the Recovery Arena by Dick B. and Ken B. (2012)

Would you like to start an A.A. Directory-listed meeting where you can speak freely about Jesus and the Bible without violating A.A. Traditions (or modify an existing meeting so that you can)? Would you like to start a Christian Recovery meeting that will take full advantage of Dick B.’s 22 years of research on early A.A. history and the Christian Recovery Movement and focusing on the roles played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in early A.A.’s astonishing successes (or modify existing meeting so that you can)? Then our new Stick with the Winners! book might be just what you need.

Would you like to learn how to have a Business Meeting/Steering Committee meeting involving an “Informed Group Conscience” that will let a loving God express himself along these lines? Would you like to know which sections of A.A. General Service Conference-approved materials will help you achieve your objective? Would you like to know what to have on your literature table(s), what meetings formats you could use, and what topics you could cover that will help you move in your desired direction? Please consider Stick with the Winners! How to Conduct More Effective 12-Step Recovery Meetings Using Conference-Approved Literature by Dick B. and Ken B.
