Dick B. Presents
Research on A.A. History and Its Application in Christian Recovery Efforts Today
For your listening, viewing, and learning as to how worldwide recovery from alcoholism and other addictions is seeing the role that God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible have played and can play today for those who want God’s help in the cure of alcoholism and drug addiction. The following video classes are for those who want God’s help in the cure of alcoholism and drug addiction. For more detailed descriptions of these three sets of videos discussed on this webpage, please click on their respective links to see and listen, learn and pass along, and support us in our ongoing work.
After 25 years of research, investigations, travels, interviews, collecting historical books and materials, and visiting archives and libraries relevant to A.A. and Christian Recovery, authors Dick B. and Ken B. have filmed, explained, and accompanied with a guide book the “rest of the story” about A.A. which has been virtually unknown to the recovery community, to AAs and 12 Steppers, and to still suffering alcoholics and addicts. Filmed by videographer John Henry of Wailuku, Hawaii.
This series of four videos presents a narrated tour of the Research Library of historian of Alcoholics Anonymous Dick B. and related interviews with Dick B. This Research Library contained at the time of the tour—February 2 and 3, 2001—some 30,000 A.A. history and Christian Recovery items gathered by author Dick B. During the tour and interviews, Dick B. discusses with videographer Stephen H. Glagola (presently residing in Stuart, Florida) the materials in his library, their relevance to the study of A.A. history, and their application in Christian Recovery efforts today.
Part One of this class presents: “The Founding, Activities, and Summary of the Original A.A. ‘Christian Fellowship’ Program. Part Two presents: “Christian Organizations and People That Shaped the Recovery Ideas of the Original A.A. Program Before It Began.” Part Three presents: “The Manner in Which the Alcoholics Anonymous Society Came about, Beginning in 1931; Part Four presents: The A.A. Program Changes between 1935 and 1940.” This class has been used by Christian treatment programs; Christian recovery pastors; and recovered Christian leaders to orient viewers and listeners to many of the Christian elements present in A.A.’s early history but basically unknown in the present-day recovery scene. (Videotaped at New Life Spirit Recovery, Inc., of Huntington Beach, California, in March 2010.)
