News & Insights

If you haven't yet read the interview with Nadia Bolz-Weber in Faith and Leadership, I highly recommend it. I was caught off-guard by her youth and her tattoos, which she wears like a badge of hipster credibility. But she has a depth too. She had a good answer to the interviewer's question, "How do you communicate a historic doctrine in today's culture?" She replied: Read Luther's "On the Bondage of the Will" and "The Freedom of a Christian." 

Here's what I like about Bolz-Weber, who is founding pastor of a Lutheran church called House for All Sinners and Saints: She talks about sin -- a lot! -- in a way that can make sense to people who've become embarrassed by the whole topic. And by talking about sin, she can also talk about grace. And that, more than anything else, feels like good news.
