    Reading Accidental Saints

    In The House for All Sinners and Saints, Bolz-Weber emphasizes the importance of acknowledging all aspects of life, and I was especially struck when she describes the rituals she and her fellow members of the House for All perform to help with their experiences of life and of deaths. Through her stories about herself and her people, I can see myself in a kinder, more loving light. I find myself tearing up as I read because I recognize myself, especially aspects of myself I judge negatively. A part of me sees that what she's writing about isn't theology, though theology is clearly a significant foundation for Botz-Weber. I, with my old, Enlightenment-shaped prejudices, worry about recommending it to others who might find it simple, and judge me as simple-minded. It's about the effect of true Gospel-Christianity on people's lives, on our hearts. On how to live with our imperfections and yet how to keep trying to encounter Christ in others and in the world. Bolz-Weber has a kind of fierceness, a kind of ferocious Christianity, that demands a harsh truthful lovingness that I find movingly meaningful.

    Accidental Saints

    I loved the book from page 1. It challenged my own thinking about the topics in the book. It is thought provoking and one that will linger with me for quite some time.
