Product Description

Failure is the first step on the path of redemption. In Stumble, Heather King takes a gritty look at what we mean by ideas like "good" and "evil", helping you to find your own place between virtue and vice. With fascinating portraits of people from the streets of Los Angeles along with prominent figures like Dorothy Day and Mother Teresa, she inspires you to keep on trying, in spite of - or even because of - your missteps.

Publisher's Description

Our lives are lived in virtue and vice and, most often, in the ordinary space between. We stumble and rise back up, ready to take on another day. King explains that "virtue" is the right way to deal with what life places in front of us. Stumble will encourage you to look at your challenges in a new way.

Editorial Reviews

"Heather King is the most honest blistering succinct emotionally-naked blunt writer in headlong bruised pursuit of the holiness of Everything That Is that I know, and I am an ink-junkie who reads ravenously looking for writers that tell it real, that say real things with passion and humor and a healthy dose of raw humility.

"Why should you read this book? Because Heather King writes the kind of sizzling tart prose that Flannery O’Connor did. Heather King keeps trying to punch through the mere religiosity of Catholicism, and get down to the wild illogical unreasonable nonsensical furious genius of it, like Andre Dubus did. Heather King, like J.F. Powers and Ron Hansen and Alice McDermott, hands you bruised people trying with all their motley might to listen to the revolutionary message of the Christ and live by its awful implications." — Brian Doyle, from the Foreword

"Holy smokes, but Heather King's spiritual writing is so good, so crazy, so normal, so convicting, so forgiving, so funny and so brilliantly, brutally, honest that I was making notes before I turned the first page of her Introduction." — Elizabeth Scalia, Patheos blogger and author, Strange Gods: Unmasking the Idols in Everyday Life
 
"Let’s face it, everyday holiness is a struggle. Yet Heather King shows us, with her incredible essays, the ways to truly own our holiness, no matter how hard the struggle we face." — Bonnie Rodgers, the CatholicTV Network
 
"Heather King’s visceral writing makes God very real, moving you to pray and to reach out to others in need." — Fr. Peter John Cameron, O.P., editor-in-chief, Magnificat
 
"Let the reader be prepared—this book is conversion inducing, demonstrating how in the real, raw circumstances of life, that though all of us will stumble, we need not despair, for there is in each of our falls a divine grace that is waiting and willing to raise us up." — Fr. Steve Grunow, CEO, Word on Fire
