Ranked among the 100 best Christian fiction books of all time at GoodReads.com.
“This book is a treasure of both godly and womanly wisdom told with disarming candor and humility, yet revealing a deep heart’s desire to know God. … I do not hesitate to recommend it to men, who need to understand the wives they live with, and to any woman who wants to walk with God.” — Elisabeth Elliot.
That’s the idea behind the classic Christian book Stepping Heavenward, in which young Katherine blossoms from a rebellious teenager who frustrates her mom into a mature Christian woman who chases after God’s heart. Through journal entries about her daily life, we experience her courtship, her marriage, her raising of multiple children, and — in the final pages — her reflections on life. We also learn numerous nuggets of wisdom gained from a life of joy and sorrow.
“One must either stop reading the Bible altogether, or else leave off spending one’s whole time in just doing easy pleasant things one likes to do,” Katherine writes.
Much of the book mirrors the life of Prentiss, who — like Katherine — experienced the tragic deaths of multiple family members and grew closer to God during the process.
Prentiss wrote this book 150 years ago, yet the challenges faced and the lessons learned still ring true today. Katherine begins her journal on Jan. 15, 1831, and pens her final entry on June 30, 1859, shortly before her own death.
Stepping Heavenward is for teenagers, young adults and seasoned citizens who want to grow closer to God.
It is for lovers of fiction and non-fiction who want to be entertained and inspired, convicted and challenged. It is for anyone who desires to grow in their sanctification. It is for every Christian.
