Tattooed Traditionalist: Nadia Bolz-Weber

Reverend Weber is the Lutheran pastor of the house for All Sinners and Saints in Denver, Colorado and one of the five women in religion to watch, according to this CNN article by Sarah Sentilles.

Not only is Weber changing what pastors look like because of all her tattoos, she's also changing what the church looks like. Hers is all about social justice and is "irreverent and progressive."  For example, according to Sentilles, "You can even buy a church T-shirt with the slogan “Radical Protestants: Nailing sh*t to the church door since 1517” emblazoned on the back."

Last year, she released a new book called "Pastrix: The Cranky, Beautiful Faith of a Sinner and Saint." Here's a review by the Baylor University Press.  I think that Krista Tippet plans to interview sometime in the next few months.
