Oxford Groups history

 Please note that some other BigBookStepStudy groups ignore a Big Book direction that the 1980 Hyannis Group believes is vital to discovery of the "exact nature of our wrongs (stp5)".  AA's Big Book (all editions) step 4 includes,  "Referring to our list again, where had we been selfish, dishonest, self seeking and frightened?" update (Jan 2002).  
 to examples and directions of this process.

Additionally, the 1953 book Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions," written largely by AA Cofounder Bill Wilson added the "Assets" to Step 4. This encourages emotional balance when combined with the 1939 book Alcoholics Anonoymous "search for flaws that caused our failure."
