Life Changers is first and foremost about how one man, Frank Buchman changed the lives of millions of people throughout the world. The Oxford Group as his work had come to be known was the most successful worldwide Christian movement of the 20th Century the power of his work is highlighted by heartwarming stories of rebirth and recovery of the young men of the Oxford Group in England... Many of the Oxford Groups, founding principles, (confidence, confession, conviction, conversion and continuance) live on today within the fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous. The stories told in life changers are as powerful as those told in the A.A. big book, with the notable exception that they cover the full gambit of maladies. It also validates the second half of the 12th step. That bringing the principles of the program to all your affairs works as well as is does for the malady of Alcoholism
Life Changers is comprised of century-old stories of men who had their lives changed so profoundly and so dramatically that the original book was reprinted 12 times. Now 100 years later, with its 13th printing, this precious classic is set to change the lives of many more men and women. The words in this book are as true today as they were then. Life Changers is also about a man, Frank Buchman, who was first and foremost a teacher. Buchman could change the lives of students and scholars in the course of a single conversation; changing those lives so profoundly and persuasively that the world was in disbelief. Buchman started a movement that reached the shores of America and lives today in the form of many 12-step programs. While the original movement was founded on Christianity, its principles and ideas moved beyond religion and Christianity into a more generic spiritual movement.
