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 firsthand 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.… (mais)

Some amusing and insightful anecdotes and essays, but goodness, the interstitial music was just horrendous. Maybe it works as part of a church service, but for an audiobook, it was awful and annoying, and just went on and on. Still, I'm intrigued by the ministry, and how it fits into the Lutheran (ELCA) tradition. ( )

If Pastrix is a personal memoir of becoming a pastor, then Accidental Saints is about becoming and being a Christian. It challenges me to rethink my relationship to other people and to love them and be loved as God loves us. It's not quite as wildly irreverent as Pastrix, but it is deeply moving and beautiful. 4.5 stars. ( )

“Never once did Jesus scan the room for the best example of  holy living and send that person out to tell others about him. He always sent stumblers and sinners. I find that comforting.”
― Nadia Bolz-Weber, Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People

I think I could just string quotes together instead of a review; but I'd probably cross some line and get a DMCA warning. Suffice to say, this is stimulating, challenging and inspiring. We are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses - saints of all sorts, and Pastor Nadia is finding them every day - and helping me to see them as well. And that's enough.

(Okay, here's one more quote)

“There are many reasons to steer clear of  Christianity. No question. I fully understand why people make that choice. Christianity has survived some unspeakable abominations: the Crusades, clergy sex-scandals, papal corruption, televangelist scams, and clown ministry. But it will survive us, too. It will survive our mistakes and pride and exclusion of others. I believe that the power of  Christianity — the thing that made the very first disciples drop their nets and walk away from everything they knew, the thing that caused Mary Magdalene to return to the tomb and then announce the resurrection of Christ, the thing that the early Christians martyred themselves for, and the thing that keeps me in the Jesus business (or, what my Episcopal priest friend Paul calls “working for the company”) — is something that cannot be killed. The power of unbounded mercy, of what we call The Gospel, cannot be destroyed by corruption and toothy TV preachers. Because in the end, there is still Jesus.”

This book was .... fine, I guess. If I hadn't gotten something out of Pastrix, I would have abandoned this one. Pastrix was recommended to me by both a practicing Lutheran and a practicing Pagan, and Bolz-Weber hit notes that agnostic me found worth contemplating. Accidental Saints, on the other hand, is essentially what I expect from a Christian inspirational book - and unfortunately my expectations are rather low. The book moves through the church's calendar year, with stories meant to show how G*d works through imperfect people; self-deprecation blends strangely with a chosen people narrative. On the positive, Bolz-Weber does try to be LGBTQ friendly in the stories she shares. Overall, the tone of the book comes across as slightly-progressive Christian and yet enamored of it's 'edginess.' Basically, it's Christian rock, distilled into book form. ( )

Nadia Bolz-Weber worships alongside "accidental saints" like a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious bishop, and a gun-toting member of the NRA.
