In our second special “Christian Recovery Radio with Dick B.” show, we highlighted our latest book, Bill W. and Dr. Bob, the Green Mountain Men of Vermont: The Roots of Early A.A.’s Original Program.
This special show is presented on the eve of our 10-day trip to Vermont where we will conduct A.A. history workshops in Burlington, St. Johnsbury, Northfield, Manchester, and East Dorset, Vermont. Places where one can find the real evidence of the Christian upbringings of three key figures in early A.A: (1) A.A. cofounder Bill Wilson; (2) A.A. cofounder Dr. Bob Smith; and (3) the man that Bill Wilson called his sponsor, Ebby Thacher.
We presented a brief overview of the 13 chapters in our new book by highlighting five important topics covered in the book: (1) The long-overdue return to A.A.’s Vermont roots and the trails that led us there. (2) What was going on with Bill Wilson, his friend Ebby, Rowland Hazard, Shep Cornell, and Cebra Graves at East Dorset, Manchester, Burr and Burton Academy, and other Vermont locations. (3) St. Johnsbury individuals, organizations, and institutions that directly impacted Dr. Bob’s ideas. (4) How these happenings relate to A.A.’s “original program.” (5) How the detailed facts presented in our book can help others today.
