The Other Side of Chaos

Breaking Through When Life Is Breaking Down
Product Description

Discover a new way to navigate chaos and to find meaning in the messes of life.

From satisfying work to sudden unemployment. From a happy marriage to a hurtful divorce. From caring for the kids to caring for an aging parent. These are just a few of the countless ways that life hurls us into the chaos of change, where our certainties are shaken and our faith may even begin to falter. But what if we saw the chaos of our lives not as something to fear or eschew, but as something to be embraced? What if we saw life's unexpected transitions as God's raw materials for bringing about a new creation, in us and in our world?
In The Other Side of Chaos, best-selling author Margaret Silf looks closely at the subject of chaos--and the intrinsic transition it brings--through the lens of Christian spirituality. In fact, she begins by reminding readers that the entire Christian faith rests on a point of breakdown--Calvary--which becomes, for humankind, the gateway to an unimaginable breakthrough. Through Scripture stories and verses, personal accounts, and other anecdotes, Silf helps us develop an authentic "spirituality of transition" that leads us to live out life's changes constructively and creatively.
Ultimately, The Other Side of Chaos gives us the courage to trust God when life is breaking down and to see our messes not as something to be rescued from, but as something that will help us break through to a place where God makes all things new.
