Shameless – An Evening with Nadia Bolz-Weber

20th August 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

Shameless is Nadia’s latest book, which reveals emotional and private details about her life. It is raw, intimate and timely, a full-blown overhaul of our harmful and antiquated ideas about sex, gender, and our bodies. To better describe her book, there is a question that needs an answer.

Why do you think the church has tried for so long to control human sexuality? 

Maybe the church has always seen sex as its competition. 

Christians are obsessed with sex, but not in a good way. For nearly two thousand years, this session has often turned destructive, inflicting pain, suffering, and guilt on countless people of all persuasions and backgrounds.

Along the way, she re-examines patriarchy, sex, and power with candour but also with hope, because in her heart she believes the “Gospel is powerful enough, transgressive enough, and beautiful enough to heal not only the ones who have been hurt but also those who have done the hurting.”

Nadia’s presentation will be followed by audience Q&A and a book-signing.
