Addictions and struggles with the passions are rampant in our culture. Fr. Meletios Webber, an Orthodox priest with a doctorate in counseling, helps us to understand addiction and explores ways to overcome it. He clearly and skillfully explains the Twelve Steps of the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. In correlating the Twelve Steps with basic Orthodox theology, Fr. Mel identifies the implication of the Twelve Steps for Orthodox and for all Christians. Using examples from the life of the Orthodox Church, he shows how the Steps can be a valuable resource for our own spiritual journey.
"Fr. Meletios Webber's Steps of Transformation presents the vision and practice of Twelve-Step programs for dealing with addictions, particularly alcoholism. He relates the Steps to Orthodox Christian spirituality with clarity, conviction, and appealing personal engagement. Here is a book which addicts and their friends are sure to treasure. It is true, deep, pure, rich, and highly rewarding." -Fr. Thomas Hopko, Dean Emeritus, St. Vladimir Seminary; speaker, author
