    Nadia Bolz-Weber

    New York Times bestselling author Nadia Bolz-Weber has been called “a pastor for America’s outsiders” (BBC). From her roots as a hard-drinking standup comic to an ordained Lutheran pastor, Bolz-Weber’s gospel is not just for spiritual seekers. Her message of radical love and acceptance empowers everyone. Bolz-Weber explores friendship and community; life purpose and activism; self-care; and leadership. She makes the deeply felt argument that honesty and human connection are key to creating and sustaining a community.

    Bolz-Weber offers life-changing advice in her video series “Have a Little Faith”, from the “MAKERS: Women Who Make America” documentary series. With titles like “Forgive Assholes,” “Separating Self from Selfie,” and “No One Has It All,” her take remains consistently frank, funny, and irreverent.
