The Twelve Steps have been called the most significant spiritual movement in the past century. They have helped thousands overcome addictions in groups from Al-Anon to Codependents Anonymous.
Philip St. Romain was one of the first to apply the Twelve Steps to a Christian spirituality in Becoming a New Person (Liguori Publications, 1984). His increased understanding of the Twelve Steps since then prompted him to write a yearlong series of articles for Liguorian magazine (1991). In answer to hundreds of letters, those articles were compiled into Twelve Steps to Spiritual Wholeness, two appendixes, and a suggested reading list.
This book presents the Twelve Steps as a way to grow, to move toward a “spiritual awakening, an awareness of our true self in God.” Every page bears gentle reassurance that fulfillment of the Twelve Steps inspires a cleansing sense of wholeness -- a renewed spirit that helps readers “break free from negative and sinful influences in their lives.”
Twelve Steps to Spiritual Wholeness will be a faithful and valuable companion on the challenging journey of the Twelve Steps.
