“Nadia Bolz-Weber is a tatted-up, foul-mouthed champion to people sick of being belittled as not Christian enough for the right or too Jesus-y for the left.”

—The Washington Post

“The amazing thing about Nadia Bolz-Weber is that she manages to take her Christianity into corners of life where the church can be pretty uncomfortable going.”

— The Daily Beast

“I am miles away from Nadia Bolz-Weber theologically, but I sure would love to have her in my foxhole if I got in trouble.”

— Rod Dreher, The American Conservative, author of How Dante Can Save Your Life and The Little Way of Ruthie Leming


Campbell lecture background

Established by the Lehigh Conference of Churches in 1990 and held annually since 1993, the Robert K. Campbell Lectures on Christian Unity inform and educate leaders, congregations, and the wider public on the enduring importance of Christian unity and its potential for addressing problems facing society today.

The series is held in memory of Bob Campbell, a former PPL executive and community leader who encouraged religious communities to work together to assist local people in need.
