Review: Life Recovery Bible-Nlt

Life Recovery Bible-Nlt
Life Recovery Bible-Nlt by Stephen Arterburn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great bible for people in any 12 Step program. Overeaters Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, Al-Anon, etc.

All throughout the pages of this bible, it relates scriptures back to the 12 steps in detailed side notes with complete insights. Inside of these insights, there are more scriptures that relate to the theme or step being discussed. For example, scriptures about dangerous self deception are used to broaden the meaning of Step 1 or scriptures about forgiveness and judgement might have side notes about Step 10.

Aside from “12 Step”, it has recovery themes througout that apply to grief and loss, life’s challenges, all manner of life events. It shows how recovery requires action not just ideology, how that obstacles are a part of life, rebuilding life after major life events, etc.

I would recommend this bible to anyone in recovery from any addiction or major life event. It is insightful and easy to read and relate to.
