Good Morning!: Quiet Time, Morning Watch,
Meditation, and Early A.A.
by Dick B.:

AAs and those in most recovery programs are urged to involve themselves in "prayer and meditation." But what does that mean? Does it mean acquiring and taking a look at the hundreds of "meditation" books that have been marketed over the past decade or so? Does it mean looking at a verse or a thought for the day or a packaged prayer? Those questions are best answered in this book about how early AAs observed what they then called "Quiet Time."

The James Club and the Original A.A. Program’s
Absolute Essentials
by Dick B

A.A. Co-founder Dr. Bob stated frequently that the Book of James, Jesus' sermon on the mount, and 1 Corinthians 13 were absolutely essential in the early A.A. program. So popular was the Book of James that early AAs wanted to call their society The James Club. This book studies, line by line, and verse by verse the relevance of these three Bible segments to A.A. principles, practices, and basic ideas.
