Product Description

Increasing numbers of Christian people find their faith metamorphosing beyond the standard images and forms of Christian faith. Their questions about where this may lead still remain. Is this the death of personal faith or the emergence of something new? Could it be a journey that is Spirit led? Chrysalis uses the lifecycle of butterflies as a metaphor for the faith journey that many contemporary people are experiencing. Drawing on the three principal phases of a butterfly's life and the transformations between these phases, the book suggests subtle similarities with the zones of Christian faith that many encounter. For butterflies and Christians, change between these phases or zones is substantial, life changing, and irreversible. This book accompanies ordinary people in the midst of substantive faith change. Chrysalis is primarily pastoral and practical, drawing on the authors experience of accompanying people in the midst of difficult personal faith changes.

    Jamieson does an excellent job of helping people find words to describe the "dark night of the soul" experience that is a necessary part of the journey with Christ. The movement from a pre-critical faith to a post-critical faith is hard to describe, but Jamieson's metaphor of the metamorphosis of the caterpillar, through the chrysalis stage, to the emerging butterfly is a great tool in understanding the developmental stages in the life of faith.
