Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People By Nadia Bolz-Weber

WHAT IF the person you’ve been trying to avoid is your best shot at grace today?

WHAT IF THAT’S THE POINT?

In a time when many have rightly 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.

This book made me so happy to be a Christian.  Honest and funny, deep and insightful, Accidental Saints disarmed me and then, when I was vulnerable, Nadia’s words snuck right in to mess with me.” – Sarah Bessey, Author

“Nadia understands more than most that we are messed up people living in a messed-up world with other messed up people.  She gets the human condition.  She refuses to sugar-coat the depth of her own desperation and need.  And that’s why she gets grace – our dire need for grace.  She understands that God meets our messed-up-ness with his mercy over and over again.  I couldn’t put this book down.  – Tullian Tchividjian, Author
