*** Accidental Saints by Nadia Bolz-Weber


Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People is a loose memoir and reflections by an unconventional Lutheran pastor: a tattooed ex-addict who embraces all comers and believes in grace and love amongst struggles — and adds “Blessed are the closeted” to the standard list of beatitudes. Whether she is on a plane engaging a sullen teenager in conversation or leading the funeral of a suicidal young man, she is the same honest, open person. If you sometimes wonder whether religious people want to exclude rather than welcome, read this book.
