Individual Titles

Becoming More Like Christ: A Contemporary Biblical Journey

  • Author: Peter R. Holmes
  • Publisher: Paternoster Press
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 152

None of us are born Christ like, none of us become Christ like at conversion, and none of us become more Christ like by just being in church, or even reading the Bible. We all need to personally change to become more like Jesus.

In contemporary society, change is identified as essential to the journey toward personal maturity. This book suggests that from a biblical perspective, personal positive change is central to a journey of discipleship—wholeness, toward a greater personal Christ like maturity. The book calls for a rethinking of current church practice, where people are normally expected to change at conversion, becoming more like other members, but subsequently are not required to change much at all. The book outlines and introduces the reader to a step by step approach to personal positive change and wholeness, for anyone wishing to begin a journey toward greater Christ likeness.

A concrete and practical approach toward discipleship that helps us to apply Christ's likeness to our lives while avoiding ‘clone-making.’

—Mike Gammil, pastor in Houston, Texas

Chrysalis: The Hidden Transformation in the Journey of Faith

  • Author: Alan Jamieson
  • Publisher: Paternoster Press
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 168

Increasing numbers of Christian people find their faith metamorphosing beyond the standard images and forms of Christian faith—questions about where this may lead 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 life cycle 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, this book suggests subtle similarities with the zones of Christian faith that many encounter. For butterflies and Christians, change between these phases 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 author's experience of accompanying people in the midst of difficult personal faith changes.

This is accessible, spiritual, affirming, clear, positive, and contains some wonderful practical ideas.

Soaring in the Spirit: Rediscovering Mystery in the Christian Life

  • Author: Charles J. Conniry, Jr.
  • Publisher: Paternoster Press
  • Publication Date: 2007
  • Pages: 224

How can the church recover corporate discernment and thus achieve “spiritual soaring” in the realization of its threefold purpose of worship, discipleship, and witness?

This is a book about Christian spiritual growth. Charles J. Conniry, Jr. observes four key elements of the church's communal practice: preparation (marked by catechesis), conversion (marked by baptism), following (marked by the Eucharist), and Christian soaring (marked by communal discernment). The claim of this book is that ongoing spiritual growth—Christian soaring—is the birthright of every follower of Jesus Christ, and that the church's historic practice of communal discernment is the principal means by which disciples grow.

This is a thoughtful, stirring, and ground-breaking book on the neglected topic of Christian soaring through discerning discipleship.

Conniry's book is a tour de force. It not only blessed me but drew me to pray...It can be read with profit...by anyone who longs to soar in the spirit.

—Brennan Manning, author of The Ragamuffin Gospel

This book is readable, challenging, and encouraging.
