This book is okay; it has a lot of good ideas in it but it seems to be more of a stew of thoughts than a well-organized, purposeful text. The main point, which I think the author could have made in a LOT less pages, is that the ideal Christian life is one of constant pliability, self-examination, questioning, and changing. This avoids the stagnation, self-righteousness, and state of false comfort that's really easy to get into. An excellent point, although I think it's baby food for most of the ...more

Metamorpha examines how people change and applies it to how the church in post-modern North America needs to change.

Similar to many post-modern and emergant authors of today, Kyle allows himself to question everything that he knows about himself ...more

Very interesting book.. a mix of psychology and spritual formation. Good input on the role of belief in our spritual development. The second half of the book is stronger than the first with a solid focus on a relationship with Christ being the foundation of mission and discipleship. I want to review my highlights about 3 months from now.

This is a great book that talks about the journey of the Christian life. It gets kinda dull and repetative in the middle, but I read it at a time when I was just starting to realize that God is as concerned about the journey as He is about the destination.

In the midst of this for a small group study (just three of us), liking the idea of being forced to shift my worldview to meet God, not the other way around.
