Speaker Profile: Nadia Bolz-Weber
"Nadia Bolz-Weber has probably done more than any other pastor in recent times to poke therapeutic fun at the misdemeanors and flaws of overly-churched Christianity and Christians. The passion behind her words, however, is as deeply pastoral as it is God-drenched and liberating ... thus the affection as well as the respect that attend her and her work wherever she goes." - Phyllis Tickle, author of "The Great Emergence"
Rev. Nadia Bolz-Weber is the founding pastor of House for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado. She is the author of Salvation on the Small Screen? 24 Hours of Christian Television (Seabury 2008) and the New York Times Bestselling theological memoir, Pastrix: The Cranky Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint (Jericho 2013). She blogs at www.sarcasticlutheran.com and Jim Wallis' www.Godspolitics.com. Her writings can be found in the Christian Century, The Lutheran Magazine and Patheos.com. Nadia has been featured in The Washington Post, NPR’s Morning Edition, The Daily Beast and on CNN.
Nobody really believes she’s an ordained pastor in the ELCA. Maybe it’s the sleeve tattoos or the fact that she swears like a truck driver. Either way ... she’s fine with it. Nadia lives in Denver with her family of 4 where she can be found writing bios in the third person, lifting weights and walking her Great Dane, Zacchaeus.
