This workbook is intended to help you benefit from a Bible-themed approach to recovery. Each day, for a month, the book offers a reading from the Book of Genesis. Each reading is followed by a short comment that connects the Biblical material with addiction recovery concepts. For each day’s reading, there are questions to help you consider the meaning of the text as it relates to your own recovery process. Each day’s reading also contains a suggested journaling exercise based on the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous.
The goal of the workbook is to provide a way for people of faith to make progress in addiction recovery. It is not meant to supplant any existing, proven treatment modalities or literature, such as the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous. Rather, this resource is offered as a means to show a person of faith that the first five books of The Bible, the foundational text of the entire Judeo-Christian tradition, is rich with insights and revelations that can assist in the recovery process.
The book also contains a full text of the Book of Genesis.

About the Author
“MY NAME IS BORUCH, AND I AM AN ALCOHOLIC…”
Boruch Binyamin is the pen name of a 51 year old religious Jewish man who has been staying sober in Alcoholics Anonymous for 15 years. He wrote the full-length version of this book, For I Will Be With You, to connect the wisdom of The Torah – the first five books of The Bible – with the principles of AA addiction recovery. Going from Genesis 1:1 through the end of Deuteronomy, the book offers a Biblical verse and its connection to sober concepts for each day of the year. Each daily reflection is intended to give the reader a way to think about the practices of 12 step recovery programs in the context of the Bible.
