Here is an article from the Akron Beacon Journal about the 70th anniversary of the ‘Big Book’.

Here are some interesting quotes from a couple of folks from the AA flock about the ‘Big Book’ from the article:

“It is ”God’s story of his love for the alcoholic.”

”To me, the Big Book is an inspiration of God.”

”You see its enduring, life-saving value and you know it had to be more than two recovering men that were that brilliant that put something together. It had to be in God’s hands.”

They forgot to mention that the book is “spiritual, not religious”; and these words from God are “just suggestions”.
