The Frequency of Mention of God in A.A.'s Big Book

The Frequency of Biblical Names for God in the Big Book

The following information is from:

Dick B., The Good Book and the Big Book: A.A.'s Roots in the Bible, Bridge Builders Edition (Kihei, HI: Paradise Research Publications, Inc., 1997), 49-50.

"God" is mentioned 277 times by name, with a capital "G," in the third edition of A.A.'s Big Book.1 The Big Book also contains 107 specific pronouns—he, him, his, and himself—which are capitalized and clearly refer to “God.”2 Counting the Big Book’s use of Biblical names for God (such as “Creator,” “Maker” and as specified below), the God of the Bible is mentioned over 400 times.3
