Church of the Beloved Presents : Nadia Bolz-Weber
Nadia Bolz-Weber will be giving some hilarious readings from her new book Salvation on the Small Screen? that chronicles her experiment of watching 24 consecutive hours of cable televangelism-prosperity gospel fare on Trinity Broadcasting Network. 28 contributors, including Bible Scholars from Iliff School of Theology, a gay Unitarian, her non-religious ex-boyfriend, a couple Jews, her Evangelical parents, Lutheran pastors and her 9 year old daughter all joined Nadia for an hour each so that the book becomes a conversation between what’s happening on the TV, what’s happening on the sofa, and what’s happing in the writer’s head. The result is a narrative which is frequently hysterical, often insightful and occasionally totally surprising.
“Turn off your TV and read this book. It’s enlightening and entertaining and
it doesn’t emit any radiation whatsoever.”
–AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically
Music by Tara Ward. Wine and Cheese reception. This event is free for you.
