My Word Like Fire Alcoholics Anonymous is in opposition to the Bible. A.A.’s own history has been incorrectly interpreted by those who–undoubtedly with the best of intentions–wish keep Christians involved in the twelve step religion. Interestingly, in one of his own books, Dick B. (an advocate for A.A.’s non-existent “Christian/biblical” roots) records how author Mel B. tried to correct him about Christian influence in early A.A. Dick B. writes, “[New Thought heretic Emmet] Fox appeared to teach that the death and resurrection and ascending of Jesus to the right hand of God was not merely the accomplishment for those who believed, but for anyone and everyone, if at all.

SPIRITUALITY TODAY Winter 1986, Vol. 38, pp. 337-348. Michael Downey: Jean Vanier: Recovering the Heart THERE has been a glut of literature of late on the subject of Christian spirituality. Likewise, there has been ample discussion about the heart and its role in the Christian life. What useful purpose is to be served by yet another article on the spirituality of the heart? Perhaps one of clarification. My aim here is to spell out briefly what the term "spirituality" means, and to present a more thorough explanation of what is meant by the term "heart."
