But Zerubbabel and Jeshua and the heads of fathers’ households of Israel said to them, “You have nothing in common with us in building a house to our God;” (Ezra 4:3)
Despite continued claims by pro-AA author Dick B., the Word of God and the Christian faith have nothing in common with the Big Book, a.k.a., the AA “bible.”
For those who do not know, the Big Book contains testimonies, advice, and assorted twelve step wisdom. It is recommended to every new AA member, often spoken of with reverence, and many treasure and treat it as if it were a holy book.
An AA member recently commented that “the whole AA book is written from the Bible…” The person who said this undoubtedly believes this is true.
Pro-AA author Dick B. writes about a “Christian AA leader and speaker who is preparing a Big Book sponsor’s guide covering the Big Book in detail and showing its relationship to Christianity.” 
It’s relationship to Christianity?
Dick B. modestly notes that the above mentioned “Christian AA leader” wants “to append a ‘Where Dick B. Found It’ segment that would use bite-by-bite, footnoted references to actual facts embodied in the AA, 12 Step, and Big Book story.” 
The Big Book denies the gospel and supremacy of Jesus Christ. Therefore, there is no Big Book relationship to Christianity.
The Big Book unapologetically promotes a broad spirituality. For instance, it states, “We found that God does not make too hard terms with those who seek Him. To us, the Realm of the Spirit is broad, roomy, all inclusive; never exclusive or forbidding to those who earnestly seek. It is open, we believe, to all men. When, therefore, we speak to you of God, we mean your own conception of God.”  (bold mine)
Can we find this anywhere else in AA’s Big Book? Yes. According to the Big Book, “If our testimony helps sweep away prejudice, enables you to think honestly, encourages you to search diligently within yourself, then, if you wish, you can join us on the Broad Highway. With this attitude you cannot fail. The consciousness of your belief is sure to come to you.”  (bold mine)
Yet, Jesus Christ warns against the broad way. The Lord tells us, “Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is BROAD that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it.” (Matthew 7:13) (bold mine) “For the gate is small and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it.” (Matthew 7:14) There is no gray area here.
So, again, how is the Big Book based on or influenced by the Bible or Christianity since it rejects the gospel of Jesus Christ?
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. (John 14:6)
Any Big Book use of Scripture , generic or otherwise, doesn’t mean much. After all, followers of the Swedenborgian, New Thought, and Mormon religions use the Bible even though they reject Jesus Christ as biblical Savior.
Insisting that Christianity has a relationship to the Big Book is about as silly as claiming that Christianity has a relationship to the Book of Mormon. But pro-AA author Dick B. has an agenda. With numerous books and articles about the alleged Christian or biblical roots of AA and the 12 Steps, the aged author is once again not letting facts–or the very Word of God–get in his way.
