"Without exaggerating, this is really an excellent book! Not only does Joanna Thyer write very well, and in an engaging way, but she knows her sources--from the perennial Tradition of wisdom and saints, from the Scriptures, and from her own living experience. Read, and be taught well, even if you are not formally in any recovery program! This guidance is for all." - Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M.

"This invaluable book explores the connections between the transformation journeys of 12-step programs on the one hand, and Christian - and especially Ignatian - spirituality on the other. Both lead the pilgrim from utter vulnerability to life-changing transformation. In both the pilgrim must surrender to the wilderness that lies between the place of un-freedom and the place of promise. Joanna Thyer brings to this exploration an authority forged in her own painful personal experience illuminated by profound spiritual insight, both of which she shares with disarming honesty and humility. Whether you come to the journey as a 12-step participant or a spiritual searcher, or both, you would look far to find a more authentic guide."- Margaret Silf, author of Inner Compass
