"Salvation on the Small Screen is fast, fresh, funny and filled with surprising twists. It is easy to point out what's wrong with a broad satirical target like televangelists. It is tougher to watch closely, with patience, empathy, and openness. Yet, Nadia Bolz-Weber and her eclectic companions find the divine even amidst the most painful religious programming. Now that is miraculous --Craig Detweiler, PhD, director, Reel Spirituality Institute, Fuller Theological Seminary and author, Into the Dark: Seeing the Sacred in the Top Films of the 21st Century
"The concept is as clever as it is brave: Spend 24 hours watching `Christian television' programming, and bring friends. Talk about what you see. Let hilarity and poignancy ensue. Lutheran minister Nadia Bolz-Weber gives us a wincing and winsome look through those cable channels that many ignore and many others make their spiritual bread and butter. With Salvation on the Small Screen? in hand, the reader can thoughtfully go `behind the label' and check out the ingredients of the oddly-influential Christian media. Bon appetit!"

PS. Pastrix, Bolz-Weber's memoir, is great. She's a tattooed, foul-mouthed, in recovery, former stand-up comic who is also a Lutheran (ELCA) pastor. It's a combination my husband I found irresistible.
