This is an inventory of, and the background material on, more than 23,900 historical books, articles, pamphlets, papers, videos, audio-tapes, news clippings, magazines, and archival materials that enabled Author Dick B. to find, publish, and disseminate specific details about A.A. It's roots in the Bible, its early Christian Fellowship, and its reliance, with such astonishing success, on the power of the Yahweh, the Creator they called A Our Heavenly Father. Most items are now located at Griffith Library, part of Wilson House, East Dorset, Vermont.
Making Known, the biblical history and roots of AA
I downloaded the sample because I was curious. After reading only a small bit I realized that this is not a serious work of research. The basic premise is strange to begin with. There is no question that the early roots of AA were Christian, so all of this supposed research was really a waste of time. It was Bill Wilson and the first 100 Alcoholics who put in those inspired phrases like "God as I understand him" which opened the door to millions of people to try this thing. Otherwise, contrary to what the author asserts, AA would have disappeared long ago.
