Reviews - What do our customers think?
A gentle look at 12 step recovery   Nov 6, 2007
The Linn family has done it again! They've written a nonjudgmental guide to living in full communion with GOD. While all three are Roman Catholics, you can be of any faith to get "something" out of this book.

We need to belong. When we feel empty, lonely, and that we don't belong, out come the addictions, severe personality flaws, etc.

The Linns ecourage us to embrace our addictions so that the "genius" inside of these addictions comes through. Then, we're no longer battling a negative addiction; rather, we're using the best of ourselves, often the part that was hidden away during the addiction, to the best of our ability.

The Linns encourage us to recover by sharing their own stories. We hear heartbreaking stories of severe emotional abuse, childhood sexual abuse, anger, greif, etc. We also read stories about their retreatants. The Linns incorporate a variety of psychologists and philosophers into their writing, including an "appearance" by Joseph Campbell.

We work through the 12 steps with the Linns. With each step, we get plenty of history on AA, Bill W., and GOD. We are encouraged to embrace our view of GOD as we view GOD at this present moment. (Atheists are welcome, too!) The Linns mix personal experience with their theological background to provide solid applications for each step. (Apply any addiction.) Each chapter ends with a well-designed activity to get in touch with the chapter's major theme.

What touched me most was their interpretation of GOD. I've had a very negative, judgmental view of GOD for many years. The Linns explain how I can recreate that GOD so I can heal. We become like the GOD we believe, posit the Linns. Thus, if our GOD is angry and venegeful, we will also be. And, we are going to fear the fires of hell. But, we should change our view to see GOD as GOD really is- loving. The Linns remind us that "God loves us at least as the person who loves us most".

We also learn to see Heaven and Hell in a new light. Yes, it's quite possible that the Hell is empty. We're given some insights into how people wind up "eternally damned", and it's by their own choosing, according to the Linns.

The last chapter, Step 12, ends on a bang. We're told how to give and receive and how we can be healed when we received. We're taught how to avoid codependent via step 12: Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to others, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.

And why should we help? The crux of this chapter's argument is based on Erik Erikson's idea that "growth comes primarily by reaching out to generate a new life in another".

With plenty of footnotes, resources, and two appendices, this book is such a loving, positive vehicle on the road to healing from any addiction. Please read this if you're hurting or know someone who is.
Belonging--A place to start  Jan 9, 2007
I found the authors' persernal perspective very enlightening. Many of the things that keep us from being "fully alive" come from the same kinds of wounds, that healing and recovery can address.
