Early Akron AAs wanted "The James Club" to be the name of their fellowship. The Bible's Book of James was their favorite; they also studied it, Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, and 1 Corinthians 13. These three Bible segments were considered "absolutely essential" to their program. This book takes each verse in James, the Sermon, and 1 Cor 13, and shows the influence of such verses on A.A. language.

One of the earliest and most valuable discoveries by author Dick B. in his search for the facts about the early A.A. program, which had such great successes, was the many, varied, and important Christian and other books read, studied, and circulated by A.A. Cofounder Dr. Bob among early AAs and their families. These are of great importance and utility today if you are to be healed of alcoholism. They cover the Bible, Jesus Christ, prayer, healing, alcoholism, daily devotions, Quiet Time, the Oxford Group, Rev. Samuel M. Shoemaker, conversion, and other relevant religious topics. Dick discovered the books in the homes of Dr. Bob's children, read and analyzed and categorized them, and placed them in this title. Other books were mentioned elsewhere as having been read and circulated by Dr. Bob, and are included.

This is a book unlike any of the many recent biographies of A.A. co-founder William Griffith Wilson (known as Bill W.). It is filled with information about Bill's religious education, experiences, and beliefs from childhood forward. Thus Bill's knowledge of his grandfather Willie's conversion on Mount Aeolus and deliverance from alcoholism, the involvement of Bill's grandparents--the Wilsons and the Griffiths--in the life of the little East Congregational Church on the lawn between the two families' houses, the reading of the Bible by Bill's grandfather Fayette Griffith and by Bill and his boyhood friend Mark, Bill's attendance at the Congregational Sunday School and his attendance at Temperance of revival meetings, his five (yes, five) self-described spiritual experiences including his decision for Christ at Calvary Rescue Mission and his "hot flash" conversion experience at Towns Hospital, his conversations with his famous doctor William D. Silkworth about the Great Physician Jesus Christ and cure of alcoholism through Christ, Bill's extensive involvement with the Oxford Group and particularly Rev. Sam Shoemaker, and Bill's intensive involvement in prayer, Bible study, the use of devotionals, and seeking of guidance with Dr. Bob and Anne Smith at the Smith Home in Akron, particularly in the summer of 1935. All these, and more, are told in this exciting and little-known story about Wilson and God. Was Bill converted to Christ? Did Bill believe in the Creator? Did the Creator have an impact on Alcoholics Anonymous through Bill Wilson? Did the Hand of the Creator touch the lives of Wilson and of the A.A. Fellowship? Your most detailed questions and the answers about these subject have never been addressed by A.A. historians in any depth. But A.A. historian and writer, Bible student, retired attorney, and recovered AA Dick B. presents this--his thirtieth published title--as a crowning historical piece on A.A., church, religion, God, Jesus Christ, and the Bible as they really existed at and before the founding of Alcoholics Anonymous on June 10, 1935

Dick B.'s second great discovery concerned the contents of the spiritual journal that Anne Ripley Smith had kept, shared, and used to teach Bill W., other AAs, and their families the underlying principles of A.A. The notebook lay unnoticed by historians and AAs alike even though it held the key to what early A.A. was really like--as related by the lady who was there as teacher, founder, and recorder. Dick B. is a writer, historian, Bible student, retired attorney, and active recovered member of A.A. He regards the Anne Smith discovery as perhaps the greatest of his historical finds and subjects in helping AAs to recover today.
