The Beautiful Sinner by Emily R. Zajac is now live

Hey ya'll, in case you didn't know I have the pleasure of working as a PA for the lovely Emily R. Zajac. She just released her new book, The Beautiful Sinner as a surprise for everyone. It's a bit on the racier side, but absolutely amazing. And I think you will all love it. Plus it's only $0.99 on Amazon.

I will have a review up in a few days for ya'll so be looking out for it.

Synopsis:
Faith.
Such a simple word, yet it holds no meaning to me.
It used to, but not anymore.
I’ve seen the dark side of life.
I’ve let it in.
And, once you let that part in.
There is no going back.
So many parts of who I was, and what I believed in has changed since her death.
Part of me wishes that I could be the person before.
Another part of me wishes that guy would vanish completely.
But then, there is Alyssa Dawn.
She sees the good parts of me.
She wants me to be the guy I used to be.
She wants to help me.
But, she can’t.
Faith was my whole life. It powered me to do more. Be more.
It doesn’t anymore.
It’s gone.
And, it took me with it.
My name is Cameron Drake.
Some say I’m the devils son.
They were right.

Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner & Saint - Nadia Bolz-Weber I doubt you'll find this book at your local Christian bookstore. And it might not be the book for you if you take offense to some of the more colorful four letter words. (The first line of the book is: “’$h!t,’ I thought to myself, ‘I’m going to be late to New Testament class.’”)

But if you have struggled with heavy doubts about this whole God thing at some point in your life, perhaps due to suffering a major loss of some kind, death of a loved one, or physical/mental/ or emotional pain, addiction, etc... If you were given a false view of God as the opposite of love, if you've been hurt by the church, this book is for you. (It's kind of like "The Ragamuffin Gospel" on steroids, with profanity, written by a female Lutheran pastor instead of a male Franciscan priest.)

I've seen Pastrix described as a theological memoir of grace. And that it is. She talks a lot about the God who meets us in our suffering. She is adamant that God doesn't cause suffering, but that he bears it on the cross. He doesn't initiate it, but He redeems & transforms it.

I genuinely loved this book from start to finish and was deeply moved by it. I just finished it and I already want to re-read it (and make all my friends read it!)
