Christian addicts are generally more inclined to think of addiction as a purely moral or sin-related issue, and they often tackle it by trying harder, praying longer, or repenting with greater fervor. Sober Mercies is a memoir about How Love Caught Up With a Christian Drunk. Using humor and honesty, Heather Kopp shares how a committed, church-going Christian, who authored books about prayer, had developed into a chronic alcoholic. Heather’s story demonstrates how faith and recovery don’t have to be in conflict, but can inform and illuminate each other. Together these two can light a path to a more authentic relationship with God. Heather is an author, editor, and blogger. Among her books are a critically acclaimed memoir, I Went to the Animal Fair and The Dieter’s Prayer Book.
