A sampling of Amazon.com book reviews:

  • “Unflinchingly honest (and funny)…You don't have to be religious to get something out of this book.”
    -NPR’s “Best Books of 2015”

  • "[Bolz-Weber] is one of the most important Christian voices around -- not because she has come up with some catchy, easy new way to do faith, but because when talks about the destructive power of sin, as well as redemption and grace, she knows of what she speaks."
    -Huffington Post

  • "Wickedly funny and painfully vulnerable, theologically nuanced and lyrically sonorous. [Her] voice communicates the scandal of the Christ and the sacraments of his church with more force and vitality than most writers can hope to summon."
    -The Christian Century

  • “Engaging and accessible…Bolz-Weber is clear-eyed about the personal travails faced by the marginalized and those without faith.”
    –Booklist

  • "If Saint Augustine were to return to life and live among us now, he would be Bolz-Weber; and if his Confessions were to be written in 21st century rhetoric and style, they would be this book. Accidental Saints is what every Christian yearns to know is possible." 
    -Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine Hours and The Great Emergence
