Beyond Belief: Agnostic Musings for 12 Step Life
Finally, Daily Reflections for Nonbelievers, Freethinkers and Everyone
by Joe C

Overview


Beyond Belief: Agnostic Musings for 12 Step Life (2014 Second Printing) is a contemporary daily reflection for today's addict/alcoholic. Available in paperback, eBook or both (AMAZON Matchbook: buy the paperback & get the kindle for $1.99 also). RebellionDogsPublishing.com has a similar bundle discount.

From the Foreword by Ernest Kurtz, author of The Spirituality of Imperfection, Not God: A History of Alcoholics Anonymous and more: "The book is aimed at a general 12-Step readership, but it is mindful that there heretofore exist no such aids for unbelievers, freethinkers, and the unconventionally spiritual. Given that the latest Pew survey found that twenty percent of the American people list their religious affiliation as “None,” it is certainly time that the Recovery world took into consideration this population's needs. Beyond Belief addresses that need in a confident, non-aggressive way. I doubt that any believer will find anything objectionable in its pages. This believer, for one, finds much that is spiritually helpful."

For decades, daily reflection books have been as much a part of Twelve Step culture as morning juice or coffee. Today, addicts, alcoholics and people who love us buy 800,000 daily devotionals annually. There are specialty books for women, co-dependents, men, young people and beginners.

Beyond Belief doesn't treat doubt or atheism as a handicap; nor is it a higher plane. The Twelve & Twelve community is about unity, not uniformity. Everyone deserves to speak their truth, candidly.The long-term recovery community is a mosaic, not a melting-pot.

THE FIRST FOUR YEARS:

Hooray for small victories -Beyond Belief is now on over 9,000 bedside or reading nook tables, eReaders, smartphones and tablets. Beyond Belief is the first daily reflection book written for everyone. Freethinkers and nonbelievers are the fastest growth demographic according to the Pew Research Forum on Religion and Public Life. Beyond Belief meets a previously unmet need; finally, a daily reflection book for nonbelievers, freethinkers and everyone. However, the book is more about what we do - not about what we believe.
