ONE BIG TENT: Atheist and Agnostic AA Members
Share Their Experience, Strength, and Hope

One Big Tent is a collection of stories, originally published in Grapevine, which represent the shared experience of secular AA members who have struggled with alcoholism, yet ultimately found a common solution in AA.

One Big Tent consists of 43 stories written by “atheists, agnostics, freethinkers or nonbelievers, who have struggled with alcoholism, yet ultimately found a common solution in AA.”

Following the general introduction, the book consists of five chapters with stories related to the following themes:
Chapter 1: “Staying Sober – No Matter What,” has nine stories. It includes a story from Jim B., the first acknowledged atheist/agnostic in AA, who is credited with inserting the phrase, “as we understand Him” after God in the third and eleventh steps.
Chapter 2: " “Supporting Each Other,” also has nine stories, which relate how non-religious members of AA care for and support each other.
Chapter 3: “One Among Many” consists of eight stories that demonstrate the essence of the statement: “AA is a We Program."
Chapter 4: “Group Life,” has seven stories, which examine the idea and experience that participation in AA service work is a key component for many AA members who are nonbelievers, whether at the group level or higher up at District and Area.
Chapter 5: “One Big Tent” delineates the title of the book with ten stories that describe how the overarching principle of Unity in AA creates a comfortable place for any member within the Fellowship of Alcoholics Anonymous.
