Overview

Bridging the gap between spirituality and the recovering community, Rising from the Dead: Stories of Women’s Spiritual Journeys to Sobriety tells the stories of alcoholic women in long-term sobriety whose faith-based rehabilitation healed and transformed their lives. Using the format adopted by Alcoholics Anonymous in telling their stories, each woman tells “how it was, what happened, and how it is now.” Their stories are first examined within the more secular models of treatment, and then in relation to theological categories and models. Illustrating the catastrophic nature of alcoholism as well as the hopeful path to recovery, this book offers a practical and valuable guide for professionals working in the Christian community to assist women suffering from addiction.

Rising from the Dead describes the 12-step spiritual approach to treating addiction, and offers strategies for strengthening and developing the spiritual lives of those afflicted with this burden. This book examines the use of stories from a therapeutic and Christian perspective, and suggests models for therapeutic listening and counseling. It also covers narrative construction, issues with shame and guilt, threshold experiences, God language, and much more. An indispensable book on healing through communities of faith, Rising from the Dead: Stories of Women’s Spiritual Journeys to Sobriety is ideal for pastors, pastoral counselors, chaplains, parish nurses, and seminary faculty teaching in the area of addiction ministry.
