This book is both encouragement for the journey and an embrace along the way. A solid recovery perspective lives on every page as an antidote for much of what parades in the media as the problem. A carefully crafted compendium written by a recovery insider sheds light on the essential nature of the spiritual journey that emerges from a lived twelve-step practice while travelling on the dirt road of life. The author’s experience on both sides of the fence bridges the practical nature of recovery to the essential restoration of morality. The keen eye for detail, coupled with an earthquake of personal experience, guides the clinical perspective and envelops the journey with passion and compassion. With roots in reformed thinking, the spiritual journey, which verges on the universal, maintains a balance of doubt, faith, and work. The resurrection language is rooted in the community of the Last Door Recovery Society. The author has played, worked, and celebrated recovery in this community, and every entry is evidence that recovery works. People get lives, and even when the road is gritty, they learn to savour a redeemed life!
