Nadia Bolz-Weber weaves personal narrative, hilarious rants and powerful spiritual insight as she relates her unusual journey of faith, offering a fresh and uncompromising look at the transformative power of grace.
As one of today's most provocative Christian leaders, she blends sardonic irreverence and brilliant theology to offer a portrait of faith that is edgy, outrageous and, above all, real.
Smart-mouthed and heavily tattooed, Nadia Bolz-Weber didn't consider herself 'religious leader material' and didn't expect to find her vocation leading a funeral in a smoky, downtown comedy club. But surrounded by recovering alcoholics, depressives, and comedians, she realized these were her people and maybe she was meant to be their pastor.
Bringing together the bracing and beautiful, this revised updated edition reminds us that we need the grace of a loving, forgiving God now more than ever.
Please note this book is published under the title 'Pastrix' in certain territories.
'This is an astonishing book...contagious, honest, captivating...a rare gift... I realize that I'm gushing, but that's what you do when a book inspires and moves and touches you like this one does.' -- Rob Bell 'Funny, raw, and packed with truth, this books is offensive in all the right ways... This book reminded me of why I am a Christian. I wept when I finished it.' -- Rachel Held Evans 'A gifted writer, a liturgical acrobat, an honest and outspoken sinner-saint, a deep, engaging, and surprising speaker - I could only be talking about Nadia Bolz-Weber.' -- Brian McLaren 'Fierce, funny, faithful, and very old-school in her passion for the Word, Nadia Bolz-Weber is a preacher of power. Read her, listen to her, and get fired up to follow Jesus.' -- Sara Miles, author of Take this Bread and Jesus Freak 'The passion behind Nadia's words is as deeply pastoral as it is God-drenched and liberating... thus the affection as well as the respect that attend her and her work wherever she goes.' -- Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence
