Accidental Saints

But it saddened me—saddens me still—that somehow the liberal church got the copyright on that slogan. I read the book with a few nods—yes, my church has people like that, too. And I read with more than a few sighs—why are stories of welcoming the outcast generally acknowledged as the exclusive property of mainline Christianity? Let me be clear from the start: there are seriously offensive things about Accidental Saints.

Given these things, many potential readers would be wise to never open Accidental Saints at all. Whether Bolz-Weber should have clothed the unpresentable parts with greater modesty is a recurring question I had while reading. She does. She talks a lot about grace. Bolz-Weber wants people to practice love and forgiveness. But her empty theology strips those actions of their substance and source. Phillip Keller. Andy McGuire. Max Lucado. Becky Thompson.

Description 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 invites readers into a surprising encounter with what she calls "a religious but not-so-spiritual life.

But God keeps showing up in the least likely of people-a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, 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 often feels less like being wrapped in a warm blanket and more like being hit by 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 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. People who bought this also bought. Shameless Nadia Bolz-Weber. Add to basket. Tattoos on the Heart Fr Gregory Boyle. Wounded Healer Pbk Henri Nouwen.
