Meet Lester Madison, a troubled alcoholic who meets up with a man who simply goes by the name of Harry, an AA sponsor who does not believe in God. Harry takes Lester under his wing and shows him how to work the AA program without having to depend on God or religion, rewriting many of the twelve steps along the way. As Harry tells Lester, ‘it’s not hubris or obstinacy that motivates me. It’s a life or death matter of survival. I change the steps to change my life.” Harry’s Way is a life changing story, and essential for anyone working the AA program who is having difficulty with the program’s reliance on a belief in God.
