Abstract:

This book is written with a Christian view of the moral life for those involved in twelve-step recovery. One might ask, why study the seven deadly sins in the context of 12- Step recovery? The question, however, is crucial. I believe it gives answer as to why the war on drugs is a failure and why recovery from addiction is slow. This book brings an awareness of the moral principles that should guide our lives as Christians and is thereby designed to reduce recidivism and promote recovery. With the topics of the increase of obesity and sex abuse prevalent in the News, it is the opinion of this.
