Summary:

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.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! It was both inspirational & interesting. This book is making Jesus real & explains grace & gives hope! Thank you Nadia! I recommend this book & author.

  • Jolene Hager

    A beautifully written but down to earth explanation of the dulling complexities of humanity with Christianity. It's what I've been and I'm sure what a lot of people have been thinking but never could articulate it. It's also full of hope, forgiveness, and the grace that God gives us all.

    Wonderful, refreshing and real. Nadia's reflective style of story telling is insightful and gives the listener the opportunity to be in her failings as well as successes.

  • Charles Johnson

    Wonderfully written and refreshing. A peek inside the life of a church and its pastor that are really serious about making a difference in this crazy, chaotic world.
