CHARACTERS ✓ Accidental Saints Finding God in All the Wrong People NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERWhat if that person you've been trying to avoid is your best shot at grace todayAnd what if that's the pointIn 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 t. 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 WEIRDI m a Catholic I hang out with REAL GAY PEOPLE I mean that is great and perhaps conservative people reading this will find it refreshing and innovative and maybe it will change their opinions and that is cool But I am looking for someone to stretch Christianity much farther Bolz Weber keeps bragging about hanging with sinners Jesus loved sinners But when you re hanging out with sinners at the same time saying I M HANGING OUT WITH FILTHY ASS SINNERS doesn t it defeat the purpose Jesus led by example and hung out with everyone but he didn t brag about it He just did When Bolz Weber spoke at the funeral of a gay man who committed suicide she called him a sinner reassuring people that they should not be ashamed that he was gay and killed himself If you really want to embrace the sinners treat them as people with as much respect as you d treat anyone else Maybe I m being too critical But if I were at that funeral and that gay deceased man was my family member I would be offended 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 levelI 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 coolgood 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
