What if that person you’ve been trying to avoid is your best shot at grace today?

What if that person you’ve been trying to avoid is your best shot at grace today?

And what if that’s the point?

In Accidental Saints, New York Times best-selling au­thor Nadia Bolz-Weber invites readers into a surprising encounter with what she calls “a religious but not-so-spiritual life.” Tattooed, angry and profane, this former standup comic turned pastor stubbornly, sometimes hilariously, resists the God she feels called to serve. But God keeps showing up in the least likely of people—a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious Bishop and a gun-toting member of the NRA.

As she lives and worships alongside these “ac­cidental saints,” Nadia is swept into first-hand en­counters with grace—a gift that feels to her less like being wrapped in a warm blanket and more like being hit with a blunt instrument. But by this grace, people are trans­formed in ways they couldn’t have been on their own.

In a time when many have rightly become dis­illusioned with Christianity, Accidental Saints dem­onstrates what happens when ordinary people share bread and wine, struggle with scripture together, and tell each other the truth about their real lives. This unforgettable account of their faltering steps toward wholeness will ring true for believer and skeptic alike.

Told in Nadia’s trademark confessional style, Accidental Saints is the stunning next work from one of today’s most important religious voices.

    This book was recommended to me by someone at work who I THINK believes I am “edgy,” and is also aware that I love reading about religion. I think SHE thought I’d embrace this “cool” approach to Christianity. But this book was not for me. Nadia Bolz-Weber comes from an extremely conservative background. So her fresh ideas were stale to me. “Catholics are NOT THAT WEIRD!”(I’m a Catholic.) “I hang out with REAL GAY PEOPLE!” I mean, that is great, and perhaps conservative people reading this will f

    I was almost sort of offended that this book was recommended to me in the first place. Has that ever happened to you? I felt the EXACT same way when someone recommended Blue Like Jazz. The person who handed it to me thought it was hip because the author doesn’t speak like he was born in the 12th century and doesn’t have extremely conservative religious views and speaks to me on my “level.”

    I think some would call Nadia Bolz-Weber’s sense of humor self-deprecating, but you can tell with each self-put down she is boosting herself up. “I’m awful, I drink beer and have tattoos! I do evil things sometimes JUST LIKE YOU but I’m still a good person!” But does a cool/good person have to say it so much? It’s also very clear she wants to come off as badass and cool. I believe she is a good person but I don’t think she’s cool. Cool to me would be someone who makes me think of Christianity anew. Who really and truly lives the message of Jesus every single day without bragging about it. Because they want to, and not because they are image conscience.

    When that book comes around, will someone please let me know?

    I recommend the audiobook as well because NBW reads it herself.

    (3.5) I knew of Nadia Bolz-Weber through Greenbelt Festival. She’s a foul-mouthed, tattooed, fairly orthodox Lutheran pastor. This brief, enjoyable memoir is about how she keeps believing despite her own past issues and the many messed-up and outwardly unlovable people who show up at her church, House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver. I especially love her new set of Beatitudes.

    In my favorite section, she zeroes in on one Holy Week and shows the whole range of emotions and trauma that religi

    In my favorite section, she zeroes in on one Holy Week and shows the whole range of emotions and trauma that religion can address. The Ash Wednesday chapter is the overall highlight, contrasting the funeral of a suicide with the birth of a new baby. People often think that ritual and liturgy are lifeless and empty, but Bolz-Weber shows how they can be full of meaning and foster connections between the unlikely folks encountered in the Body of Christ.

    Here’s a few tastes of her writing:

    “I’m not running after Jesus. Jesus is running my ass down.”

    “we’ve lost the plot if we use religion as the place where we escape from difficult realities instead of as the place where those difficult realities are given meaning.”

    “the really inconvenient thing about being Christian is the fact that God is revealed in other people, and other people are annoying. I understand the impulse of not wanting to be in community. I can’t argue with that. But I think the experience of bumping up against other people has changed me in ways that I never could have been changed if I was just reading books and practicing meditation. We don’t get to be Christians on our own.”
