These words are about more than "issues". They're about people who sit as close to us as the next pew - or our own. People struggling with problems that sermons or Bible studies alone won't solve. But there is a way the church can help the hurting move beyond their wounds to experience the healing and liberty of Christ.
Celebrate Recovery fills a long-standing need in the church in its role as Christ's healing agent. Developed by John Baker and Rick Warren of the renowned Saddleback Church, this program's life-changing effectiveness has gained it an explosive, grass-roots popularity. Drawn from the Beatitudes, Celebrate Recovery helps people resolve painful problems in the context of the church as a whole. Rather than setting up an isolated recovery community, it helps participants and their churches come together and discover new levels of care, acceptance, trust, and grace.
Whether your congregation is large or small, this 25-session fellowship-based curriculum truly will be a celebration of Christ in the life of your church and its members. A proven, groundbreaking program, painstakingly and prayerfully developed to help people discover new dignity, strength, joy, and growth in the image of Christ.

I work for the School for the Blind. Audio Books by Audible let then see with their ears.
For personal Growth. Nothing better. Except maybe the Bible
It gave me the private abiltiy to evaluate where I am in life and how I got here and why I have had so much trouble changing
I think anyone who has over and over wanted a new beginning but just kept ending up in the same old place would be unfair to themselves not to LISTEN, not just hear this book.
Love this program, and you get to listen to the live sermons this book was written from. FANTASTIC!!!
I like the audio version since I can listen to it while I drive
It is a great book to have.
This audio is VERY misleading. The content is actually sermons (messages) given by Rick Warren at Saddleback Church from (based on pop culture references he makes) sounds like they're from early 90s. Also intersperced in the audio are multiple testimonies from individuals attending Saddleback's Celebrate Recovery program. While appreciate testimonies, there are so many they this entire thing sounds like an advertisement to join Celebrate Recovery.
I was really hoping this audio was actually an audiobook of the four booklets written by Baker for CR. It is not. Do NOT spend your money or credits on this if you were actually looking for a book.
Very powerful! Everyone has some form of addiction. Not necessarily substance abuse, but in many cases work, sports, and food among other things.
It it wasn't going to be an audio book they shouldn't call it that . It was sermons or something put together which you can see on you tube very unhappy that something very recognized would do something so halfheartedly
A collection of recovery slogans I have hear many times before
