Book 11 of 2013 -- Pastrix

I am not big on memoirs or autobiographies (or biographies for that matter).  But when I saw some of the online comments about this one I thought it was worth a read.

And I was right.  Bolz-Weber tells her story with honesty and open-ness.  And in doing so casts a different light on the Gospel as she interacts with it.

There were a couple of times as I was reading her story that I saw a way to preach annual festivals (Baptism of Jesus and Easter) in a slightly different tack.  I especially liked her image of Jesus with the dirt of his tomb under his fingernails....

I would suggest this as a light, enjoyable, and very worthwhile read
