    Nadia Bolz-Weber takes no prisoners as she reclaims the term "pastrix"(pronounced "pas-triks," a term used by some Christians who refuse to recognize female pastors) in her messy, beautiful, prayer-and-profanity laden narrative about an unconventional life of faith. Heavily tattooed and loud-mouthed, Nadia, a former stand-up comic, sure as hell didn't consider herself to be religious leader material-until the day she ended up leading a friend's funeral in a smoky downtown comedy club. Surrounded by fellow alcoholics, depressives, and cynics, she realized: These were her people. Maybe she was meant to be their pastor.

    Story
    If you could sum up Pastrix in three words, what would they be?

    surprising, thoughtful, vulgar


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Her husband. He seemed to have a pretty clear mind.


    What about Nadia Bolz-Weber’s performance did you like?

    It was her story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. We may have listened to a couple of chapters at a time. But then we needed to stop and talk about it or I would just need to think about what she had said.


    Any additional comments?

    I both liked and hated the book. There were things in it that I just could not agree with, and sometimes she was conflicting. However then there was other times that she would look at things differently so it would really stretch me.
