Bill W. A Different Kind of Hero (p)
List Price: $14.95
An inspiring account of an extraordinary life. There are heroes of politics, religion, war, and history. There are heroes of sport, science, and legend. Bill Wilson was an entirely different kind of hero. After years of unhappiness and hospitalizations for alcoholism, he hit bottom. Although not a religious man, he called out to God in desperation. In response, he experienced a tremendous inner vision. Instantly, he was a changed man. In 1935, he co-founded Alcoholics Anonymous and created the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions that would serve as the foundation of AA’s program for recovery from this widespread addiction.
