Few things are more coveted to writers than the Midas-touch of an endorsements by Oprah Winfrey. Most will never earn such a boon, but those who do often find themselves launched into stunning commercial success (or at least, a bolster to their pre-existing fame). Such titles have included Pulitzer Prize winning novels and new age, self-help guidebooks. When Brené Brown’s appeared on Oprah’s ‘Super Soul Sunday’, her books joined the ranks. The topic of Brown’s books, however, held a unique and unexpected theme: the importance of making yourself willingly vulnerable. Who chooses that? And why would that appeal to someone like Oprah and her countless fans?

–Alcohol Anonymous, step one

 

       St. Patrick at first does not seem the poster child for addiction—what we commonly think of as wild and wicked behavior—at least, not how Jamie Arpin-Ricci introduces him.  In his new book Vulnerable Faith: following in the way of St. Patrick, Arpin-Ricci introduces a Patrick who looks a lot more like me and everyone I grew up with: young, privileged, self-assured and secure in the knowledge that life will work out well for him in the end.
