This is a call up meeting at the 3rd Annual Columbia River Young Peoples Roundup from September of 1978. The topic of the meeting is On Awakening and has a number of folks in the audience coming up and sharing on the topic. If you have any recordings of young peoples events you are willing to share please email me, I feel like this is one area my speaker resources are a bit weak.

About once a year I get an email asking me why in the opening do I say that this "Is a podcast for men". I just got another and thought I might try to put this to rest, I am NOT saying that, I am saying "In a podcast format". When I listen to it nothing about it sounds like Im saying "for men" rather than "format" but  apparently some of you hear "for men" I assure you the word is format!

The Study Edition of The Big Book

studyeditionI have one of these and it is one of my favorite items, a really excellent and useful for book study meetings or as a gift to a newcomer who is going to be heading to one.

The First 164 pages of The Big Book with lined blank pages opposite each page of text for note taking.

  • Includes the original Foreword
  • The Doctor's Opinion
  • Dr. Bob's Story.
  • Bound in black bonded leather. 

Paragraph numbers along side the text for easy reference.  Entire Original Manuscript (about) including the stories. Easy to read retyped version. Includes paragraph numbers corresponding to the modern text for easy comparison.  

Footnotes explaining historical and obscure references in the text.  

Footnotes documenting all 79 differences between the modern text and the original 1st printing text of the 1st 164 pages (about). Yes, believe it or not, the basic text has been changed 79 times since it was first published.
