This book is written with a Christian view of the moral life for those involved in twelve-step recovery. One might ask, why study the seven deadly sins in the context of 12- Step recovery? The question, however, is crucial. I believe it gives answer as to why the war on drugs is a failure and why recovery from addiction is slow. This book brings an awareness of the moral principles that should guide our lives as Christians and is thereby designed to reduce recidivism and promote recovery. With the topics of the increase of obesity and sex abuse prevalent in the News, it is the opinion of this author that a lack in moral formation is at the root of this crisis. Spiritual growth cannot be limited to psychological issues alone. This book is a response to the question that has emerged from the statistics about addiction: What value has moral behavior for recovery? Those who do not believe in Christian moral values are bound to be imperfect guides and will fail in some of the most urgent problems related to the human condition concerning moral evil. Moral weakness is conducive to addiction and codependency. The addict is unable to choose real love. Christianity offers a willed commitment to a way of life that heals human wounds and rectifies the effects of sin while building character which grows in the measure that the person depends on truth and grace.
