St. Luke’s Book Study Group to Read and discuss Accidental Saints:  Finding God in All the Wrong People, by Nadia Bolz-Weber

In Accidental SaintsNew York Times best-selling au­thor Nadia Bolz-Weber invites readers into a surprising encounter with what she calls “a religious but not-so-spiritual life.” Tattooed, angry and profane, this former standup comic turned pastor stubbornly, sometimes hilariously, resists the God she feels called to serve. But God keeps showing up in the least likely of people—a church-loving agnostic, a drag queen, a felonious Bishop 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 feels to her less like being wrapped in a warm blanket and more like being hit with 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 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 a stunning work from one of today’s important religious voices.

Please join us as we read and discuss Accidental Saints.  Our next meeting will be on Tuesday May 28th, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. in the St. Luke’s library.  The book is available in paperback through your favorite online bookseller, modestly priced, with used copies available.  It’s also available for e-reader.  It’s a quick read, so we’ll discuss the whole book on the 28th.  Bring recommendations for the next book.  Please email George Omohundro at landgo@verizon.net with any questions.  We hope to have you with us.
