Invitation to a Great Experiment
Thomas E. Powers.
When the first edition of this book was published in 1959, Louis Cassels wrote the following review for United Press International: “This is not a stuffy academic discourse on spiritual life. It is a powerfully written hand-book on how to find God, by a man who did so, to his own vast surprise. For those who are already tentatively or securely committed to a religious faith, this book offers a guide toward deeper understanding of the spiritual life. For those who do not believe in God, but who are troubled by what G.K. Chesterton called ‘the first wild doubts of doubt,’ it is a compelling invitation to a great experiment.”

The Answer to Addiction
John Burns and three other recovered addicts.
Revised 2008 by Robert Calhoun. Millions of people worldwide have experienced the miracle of recovery available in Twelve Step Programs. Where did the programs begin? Why do they work? The Answer to Addiction provides answers to these questions as well as the authors’ compelling stories of recovery from severe alcohol and drug addiction.
24 Communications. 198 pages. 6 x 9. Softbound.
The Practice of the Presence of God.
This is not just a devotional classic. It is one of the greatest how-to manuals ever written on the subject of establishing conscious contact with God. The man who wrote it, Brother Lawrence, lived three hundred years ago. He was a monk. He was also a depressive, and he suffered from obsessive fear and worry. He found a way out of life trouble. His story is in the pattern of millions of modern recovery stories in the 12 Step Fellowships. And the method he developed may be the single most useful way for a recovering addict to connect with God and with the 11th Step.
24 Communications. 130 pages. 4.5 x 7. Softbound.
