Nadia Bolz-Weber Ê 9 Read Read ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ê Nadia Bolz-Weber characters Accidental Saints Finding God in All the Wrong People He least likely of people a church loving agnostic a drag ueen 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 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 dis­il. Here we have a continuation a collection of stories from one Saint Cookies day to another five year later when the cookies are accidentally forgotten The author is a Lutheran pastor in Denver with her church of and for people who don t really fit in the usual churches There is a set of discussion uestions at the end and a short interview with her We get to read of various events both in Denver and on author s travels within US and elsewhere You get to see her in all her goods and flaws here which in the end mirror the goods and flaws of all people And yet God shows mercy grace and humor in catching us all You get to witness some of the traditions of her church the cookies the tulips etc and to meet some interesting peopleYou end up thinking about your own versions of events featured here your own weaknesses and fears and get a feel of God s mercy and sneakiness in a good way over and over It s uite uplifting I think this book may be a good or better even companion to her previous book Pastrix and there s many details that I can see myself pondering on even later Very enjoyable a read

Nadia Bolz-Weber Ê 9 Read Read ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ê Nadia Bolz-Weber characters Accidental Saints Finding God in All the Wrong People Lusioned 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 From the Hardcover edition. On a 0 100 scale what I know about Christianity comes MUCH closer to 0 than to 100 Believe me Note I m not repeating believe me as does The Donald so you can trust that I m neither lying nor using truthful hyperbole Born Jewish and still Jewish I unfortunately don t know what I ought to know about my own religion much less anyone else s And before I discuss Nadia Bolz Weber s book I should also confess that my desire to increase my familiarity with Christian theology has never been strong enough to measure When I bought Accidental Saints I did not realize that I was in a sense registering for Religion 103 Introduction to Christianity A few days ago our Sabbath I pulled it from my to read shelf and SURPRISE Page 1 offers an old Christian hymn that begins Rejoice now all heavenly powers Sing choirs of angels Exult all creation around G d s throne Jesus Christ is risen Instead of singing I m thinkin Holy moly why did I buy this book should I read on and attempt to find out why Obviously I did Yes Bolz Weber s Accidental Saints contains plenty of material that a practicing Jew cannot embrace or even understand others acceptance of it as the TRUTH To my amazement however the foreign beliefs never became an obstacle to my appreciating a work by this Lutheran pastor The name of Bolz Weber s church is House for All Sinners and Saints and her book has chapters entitled to mention a few Absolution for Assholes Judas Will Now Take Your Confession and The Best Shitty Feeling in the World The work is a billboard promoting the value of letting it all hang out pardon the dated expression The unusual experiences and the commentary that Bolz Weber shares with her readers convey important messages none it seems important than the following In the kingdom of G d we need not cultivate a persona to hide the lame poor blind or crippled parts of us You can just be And in just being you can in the fierce and loving eyes of G d be known be whole and maybe even find a little rest Because keeping it all ie pretending or overcompensating going is just exhausting 125 26 How many times have I said or written You don t have to be Jewish to get a particular play novel movie etc On a 0 100 scale oh forget the scale it doesn t go high enough My closing comment about Accidental Saints is however a first for me You don t have to be Christian to read this book and be glad that you did
