Chrysalis: The Hidden Transformation in the Journey of Faith


Paternoster 2007

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Have you ever felt that the very things that once inspired and nurtured your faith now seem lifeless and perhaps even frustrating?

Christians often find their faith metamorphosing and do not know how to handle the troubling changes. Using the life cycle of a butterfly as a metaphor, Alan Jamieson, helps readers to see that radical changes need not mean the death of personal faith. Instead he helps us to embrace them as part of a positive, Christian, Spirit led journey with God.

Praise for the Print Edition

There are few who could tackle the subject of nascent faith forms as well as Alan Jamieson. As spiritual guide, studied intellectual, and active practitioner, he has been guiding people through the complexities of faith in the 21st century for many years now. Chrysalis promises to be an extremely helpful framework for both pastoral work and missional engagement in our time.

—Alan Hirsch, author of The Forgotten Ways and The Shaping of Things to Come, founding director of Forge Mission Training Network

With Chrysalis, Alan Jamieson emerges as the dominant journey-theologian of our time. A book of immense wealth, Jamieson's serene, soaring mastery of the spiritual faith is destined to become a classic.

—Leonard Sweet, Drew University, George Fox University,
