A wonderful little book!,
This review is from: CHRYSALIS PB (Faith in an Emerging Culture) (Paperback)Chrysalis is a book that describes the normal faith journey that many Christians go on, but few understand.
Some people reading this book won't necessarily "get it", but basically Alan Jamieson (minister and sociologist) brings together research, scripture and some of the early church fathers' writings in describing how Christian faith matures and changes over time.
He uses the Monarch butterfly's life cycle as an analogy (hence the title chrysalis). His description is wonderfully validating for people who are struggling in congregation bubbles that don't get them; and this book should be compulsory reading for ministers/pastors.
