Although this book was written for alcoholics in recovery it is also valuable for those who are related to or friends of alcoholics who are still on the road. It gives a better understanding of the struggles of those who are in recovery by showing the juxtaposition to the struggles and suffering of Jesus as He carried the cross to the place where He would be crucified.
The prayers and the illustrations make it real both historically and contemporarily. It is not something that happened in the past but it is brought forward to today and made personal.
This book will speak to anyone who recognizes his/her imperfections, and is willing to admit them and to receive healing through the suffering of Christ.

What a stroke of genius! Not only does the recovering addict share in the suffering of Jesus in carrying of his cross, passion, and crucifixion, as they deal with their own pain and anguish, but each humiliation and confrontation encountered by Jesus is related to the recovering addict's battle. The path of sobriety becomes enobled by the parallel with Christ's journey to the cross, His death, and burial. And because the meditations related to recovery from addiction are aligned with the Stations of the Cross (found in every Catholic Church), the recovering addict can walk the walk with Jesus and reflect on the success and pitfalls of their journey to restored health. Moreover, this unique series of meditations for the Stations of the Cross provides a beneficial approach to personal self-examination for anyone afflicted with "stinking thinking" looking for healing. Well done, Paul Sofranko. This is a great resource for anyone in a 12 step program and would be a tremendous addition to anyone's daily devotion.
