Description
Raw, intimate, and timely, Nadia Bolz-Weber's latest book offers a full-blown overhaul of our harmful and antiquated ideas about sex, gender, and our bodies. Christians are obsessed with sex. But not in a good way. For generations countless people have suffered pain, guilt, and judgment as a result of this toxic fixation on sex, the body, and physical pleasure. In the follow-up to her celebrated New York Times bestseller Accidental Saints , Bolz-Weber unleashes her critical eye, her sharp pen, and her vulnerable but hopeful soul on the caustic, fear-riddled, and religiously inspired messages about sex that have fed our shame. In turn, Bolz-Weber offers no simple amendments or polite compromises, because the stakes are too high--and our souls and our bodies are worth too much. Instead, this tattooed, swearing, modern-day pastor calls for a new reformation. She urges us to take antiquated, sexist ideas about sex, gender, and our bodies and "burn them the f*ck down and start all over." This is a journey of holy resistance. Along the way, as antidotes to shame, heresy, and all-too-familiar injustice, Bolz-Weber dispenses grace, freedom, and courage. She shares stories, poetry, and scripture, cultivating resilient hope and audacious love rooted in good news that is "powerful enough, transgressive enough, and beautiful enough to heal not only the ones who have been hurt but also those who have done the hurting." In Bolz-Weber's most personal, bracingly honest book yet, she shares intimately about her life, with her trademark blend of vulnerability, humor, and candor. If you've been mistreated, confused, angered, and/or wounded by the shaming sexual messages so prevalent in religion, this one is for you.

display_description Nothing gives church folk anxiety quite like the subject of sex. And that's why Pastor Nadia sets out to reclaim the conversation for a new generation. She calls for a reformation of the way believers understand and express their sexuality. To make her case, the author draws on experiences from her own life as well as her parishoners', then puts them side by side with biblical narrative and theology to explore what the church has taught and about sex, and the harm that has often come as a result. Along the way, she reexamines patriarchy, gender, and sexual orientation with candor but also with hope. Bolz-Weber offers an honest, affirming and intellectually robust experience on the pages that speak to skeptic and believer alike. -- Publisher.
