Book Study Banner

The College and Young Adult Commission will be hosting a weekly book study via Zoom from April 10 – May 1. Anyone ages 18 – 40 are welcome to join. The study will also have facilitators leading separate discussions to discuss the book at length. Additional in-person meetings may be scheduled depending on participant location and interest.

The Book

This book study session will cover “Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People” by Nadia Bolz-Weber.

“In Accidental Saints, New 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.

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.”

A limited number of book copies has been made available for those who wish to join. Contact Alisa Carmichael for more information, or click the link below to purchase the book individually.
