Shame-Less by Nadia Bolz-Weber, review by Robin Templin
I love this woman. I love her heart, her spirit and her "religion". I'm not churchy, but I gladly read at Nadia's alter. Once again, she turns her sights on universal love, often despite the teachings of the church. This time she zeros in on our sexuality. Yikes!
If this is blasphemy, I am a fan. But if you know the writings of Bolz-Weber, you know she doesn't bash "The Church". Instead, she holds it to very high standards and is willing to put in the work to raise it up. And to help each of us rise at the same time. Nadia believes that if the church is responsible for a large portion of our screwed-up sexuality, it can also play a large role in the healing.
Nadia shares her personal story of owning and accepting her body. And she allows others to reveal their singular journeys. Her point is not to walk away from the church, but to challenge it by showing up. Just as you are.
