Read full description of the books:
What if the annoying person you try to avoid is actually seconds away from becoming an accidental saint in your life?
What if, even in our persistent failings, holy moments are waiting to happen?
In Accidental Saints, New York Times bestselling author Nadia Bolz-Weber takes us inside the House for All Sinners and Saints, her congregation in Denver. Tattooed, angry, profane--an altogether unlikely cleric—this former standup comic stubbornly, sometimes hilariously, resists the God she feels called to serve. Yet we watch as, in her doubts and her disasters, she keeps “stumbling into holy moments” which break through her resistance and sweep her up in transforming relationships where giving, receiving, even embodying grace becomes a way of life.
As her dramatic stories unfold, we begin to sense that just such holy moments are waiting for each of us.
In a time when many have rightly become disillusioned with Christianity, Accidental Saints demonstrates what happens when ordinary people meet to share bread and wine, struggle with scripture, and tell the truth about their real lives. Their faltering steps toward wholeness will ring true for believer and skeptic alike. As one reviewer writes, “This is a book for everyone who yearns to be made new.”
Told in Nadia’s trademark confessional style, Accidental Saints is a stunning next work from one of today’s most important religious voices.
