                                              Jim B. - A.A. Pioneer

 First self-proclaimed agnostic to join AA, Jim B. is credited with suggesting the expression “as we understood Him” to qualify “God” and make the spiritual angle more accessible to others like him. Here he gives a personal history of the trials and tribulations in the early days of the fellowship (1:11:26 min.). For more on Jim, see “The Vicious Cycle” in "Big Book Q&A," Personal Stories, on this site.
