These essays are ultimately designed for long term members of 12 step fellowships to help them be better sponsors and to help them be of service to others without allowing it to become their whole identity. In recovery, we get a chance to help others, but, in attempting to do so, we end up making mistakes, and coming face to face with our own characters defects. Service to other is a chance for us to exercise our own personal demons. Here are some essays, written by Twelve Step members, as they struggle to learn how to lead other by example. If you are new to recovery or questioning staying clean, then this book probably isn't for you. There is a whole myriad of books focused on early recovery.
Here are the titles of the four essays:
Spirituality vs. Religion
Selfish Service and Evangelism
The Thirteenth Step
