Addiction and Grace offers an inspiring and hope–filled vision for those who desire to explore the mystery of who and what they really are. May examines the "processes of attachment" that lead to addiction and describes the relationship between addiction and spiritual awareness. He also details the various addictions from which we can suffer, not only to substances like alcohol and drugs, but to work, sex, performance, responsibility, and intimacy.

Drawing on his experience as a psychiatrist working with the chemically dependent, May emphasizes that addiction represents an attempt to assert complete control over our lives. Addiction and Grace is a compassionate and wise treatment of a topic of major concern in these most addictive of times, one that can provide a critical yet hopeful guide to a place of freedom based on contemplative spirituality.

I am so thankful for God leading me to this book. I had no idea how one can displace himself from a naturally wired desire to seek a personal relationship with our Father- God. From this disassociation, one only has things to attach himself to. Further behavior in this way only leads to addiction, whatever that is, in essence, is fear based.
Chemical substance abuse is surely the most vicious as he states and I can personally attest to.
Maybe this supports Christ's statement- "Be in this world, but not of it!"
My lesson is 'nail yourself to God, by choice, not attachments'.more
May does a superb job of describing our addictive nature and issues the hard challenge of living in the spacious moments once we've stopped.more
Though I was stretched by some Dr. May's theology, I learned a great deal about addiction from him. Truly knowledgeable in both areas of addiction and spirituality, May's writing has been a resource for many working with those in addiction or struggling with their own (however, I must say that May makes a strong case that we all struggle with addiction).more
