STUMBLING TOWARD GOD traces a woman’s spiritual search with an unusual twist – from an “atheist who prays” to unorthodox membership in two contrasting churches: Unitarian and Episcopal. In the second edition of her forthright memoir, McGee shares new adventures on her spiritual quest, culminating in personal encounters with a God of love. An honest, satisfying read for anyone questioning or seeking a spiritual path. Includes Reading Group Guide.

"This book is the real stuff. Read it carefully—carefully because the fine writing will repay your attention, and carefully because it's the kind of quietly dangerous material that just might change you." —Bill McKibben, author of THE END OF NATURE
“Honest, elegant, and smart—this book is essential reading for anyone grappling with life’s big questions, inside and outside what we call church.” —Christine Hemp, author of WILD RIDE HOME: LOVE, LOSS, AND A LITTLE WHITE HORSE – A FAMILY MEMOIR and THAT FALL (poems)
