In his book, Breathing Under Water, world known and renowned teacher and author Richard Rohr discusses how the spirituality found in the Twelve Step Program coincides with the message of Jesus. The world today is drowning in addiction which could be a metaphor for sin itself. Rohr feels that the gospel principles found in the Twelve Step Program can free anyone from their addiction. In Breathing Under Water he takes each step of the Twelve Step Program, presents scripture verses that relate to the step and discusses how the two are related and relevant to each other. The last chapter addresses the presence or lack of presence of God in the world and in the midst of suffering which can be a result of addiction when he discusses the question "Exactly how is God sustaining what God created?" Breathing Under Water is an important and relevant book for anyone who suffers from an addiction and for those involved in the life of an addicted person. Breathing Under Water is written as Rohr often writes with compassion and encouragement, never condemnation.
