Item Description...
Here speaking as a "public alcoholic," a recovering person willing to speak about chemical addiction, prolific and much respected ethicist Jim Nelson offers his personal and theological reflection on alcohol addiction and recovery. Drawing on the foundational ideas of liberation theology and weaving together scripture and Christian tradition with contemporary medical and sociological insights, Nelson demonstrates the healing significance of story telling for the recovering alcoholic and explores all addictions' roots in the spiritual thirst for God.

Publishers Description
This volume is a personal and theological reflection on alcohol addiction (and by extension all addictions) and recovery by renowned ethicist James Nelson. He uses his own experience of alcoholism and recovery as the impetus for this spiritual discussion, and asks the question: Where is God in all this? He shows how resources in Christian faith can be very useful to alcoholic recovery, and how the experience can illuminate areas of that faith.

An in-depth guide into addiction and recovery  Jul 19, 2006
An insightful book about the connection between spirituality and addiction. This book gave me a great deal of insight into addiction and recovery that will prove to be quite useful to me in my career. I appreciate the author's openness about his own addiction. I cannot say enough good things about this book. It broaches a very difficult subject and does it in an engaging and respectful manner.
