Now a New York Times bestseller, Nadia Bolz-Weber
takes no prisoners as she reclaims the term "pastrix"(pronounced
"pas-triks," a term used by some Christians who refuse to recognize
female pastors) in her messy, beautiful, prayer-and-profanity laden
narrative about an unconventional life of faith.
tattooed and loud-mouthed, Nadia, a former stand-up comic, sure as hell
didn't consider herself to be religious leader material-until the day
she ended up leading a friend's funeral in a smoky downtown comedy club.
Surrounded by fellow alcoholics, depressives, and cynics, she realized:
These were her people. Maybe she was meant to be their pastor.
Using life stories-from living in a hopeful-but-haggard commune of
slackers to surviving the wobbly chairs and war stories of a group for
recovering alcoholics, from her unusual but undeniable spiritual calling
to pastoring a notorious con artist-Nadia uses stunning narrative and
poignant honesty to portray a woman who is both deeply faithful and
deeply flawed, giving hope to the rest of us along the way.
Wildly entertaining and deeply resonant, this is the book for people who
hunger for a bit of hope that doesn't come from vapid consumerism or
navel-gazing; for women who talk too loud, and guys who love chick
flicks; for the gay man who loves Jesus, and won't allow himself to be
shunned by the church. In short, this book is for every thinking misfit
suspicious of institutionalized religion, but who is still seeking
transcendence and mystery.
