I love this book. It has helped me a ton personally in processing through compulsion that I wrestle with. It is amazing how this book can help in Christian spiritual formation especially when studied in a group context. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who has a pulse :).

This is the best book on the Twelve Steps since the Big Book 16 April 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the definitive Christian book on the Twelve Steps. Miller compromises neither the Twelve Step program and its unique dynamic nor the Biblical principles of the body of Christ in this insightful and honest work. Anyone struggling with problems of whatever nature can find guidance and encouragement in these pages. The questions at the end of each chapter are an excellent way to "work the steps" - again and again. This book has become my "second Bible."

Will Become a Classic for Christian Recovery 31 Aug. 2001
By Ronald M. Furgerson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Our church staff recently presented a seven-part message series based on Miller's book and it had a profound impact on our congregation (New Life Christian Church, Centreville, VA, see newlife4me.com). We made the book available for our folks at our information table and it was the best received book we have ever used -- running slightly ahead of Lee Strobel's Case For Christ. It was so popular and there was so much interest in it that the book and the message series led to starting a couple of Celebrate Recovery/Hunger For Healing groups for those working through their own "hurts, habits, and hang-ups," including some who had never acknowledged having a problem other than some vague recognition that there was "sin" in their lives. Miller's book has been a perfect companion for our recovery groups. I highly recommend it for anyone struggeling with control issues -- those willing to admit their own lack of self-sufficiency and ready to return God to his rightful place as Creator and Lord of the Universe.

A deeply Spiritual Way of working the Twelve Steps 13 Oct. 2000
By Anders M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A perfect book for you who is working the steps in any Twelve Step Program - AA, Al-Anon, NA, OA or other... The book goes through the steps in a very pedagogic way from a spiritual perspective covering problems related to all kinds of problems of addiction and sin. Problems you can have even after you recovered from your primary disease. In the end of every chapter and step Keith Miller gives you questions to work with. He also covers aspects of sponsorship and problems with drawing lines/boundaries towards others. In doing so he clearly talks from his own experiences as an recovered workaholic and sinner. Gorskis' "Understanding the Twelve Steps" and Joe's & Charlie's "the Big Book Study" gave me an basic understanding of the Twelve Step Program, but this is my favorite book when it comes to getting deeper understanding of lives basic problems and to the spiritual side of the program. I "must" for anyone wanting to grow spiritual, even if they haven't worked the steps before.

A great book for new or old 12-steppers 11 Feb. 2002
By "rakers5" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book after I had worked through the steps, but I wish I had read it before. Miller does a great job breaking down each step and applying it to his own life. If you thought the steps were just for alcoholics, think again. This book will open your mind to behaviors that keep you stuck in the insanities of life. If your new to the steps or if you have lived them most of your life this book hits the spot.

Do you lie awake at night with anger? Resentment? 4 Jan. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Are you hungry? Hungry for healing? What a wonderful book.

Here's twelve step book for people addicted to control of their lives.

What's that? Too much self control can be a problem?

It can be, if you'd rather yield your life to the Higher Power!

Echoing the previous reviewer, it's easy to read, difficult to take....

...and a journey well worth taking.

This book is for anyone addicted to sin.

Special emphasis is placed on the sins of control, anger, and resentment,

although those addicted to mundane vices such as drugs, alcohol, sex or food

can benefit from this book too! :)
