Butterflies in the Belfry—Serpents in the Cellar

An Intentional Quest for a Natural Christianity

In 1988, Michael Jones moved his family to the Middle East to be
missionaries to Muslims as part of one of the most demanding
Christian organizations. Michael found the Muslim people to be
extremely hospitable, but discovered serious flaws within his own
evangelical worldview. After a catastrophic collapse of faith, standing
in middle of the post-evangelical wilderness, Michael contemplates
the possible paths out, including returning to agnosticism or even
suicide. Michael takes the reader on an intimate yet intellectually enthralling
journey through his personal history and the history of Western
civilization. In the end, not only does he find the answers to his
personal dilemma, but, inadvertently, he discovers a refreshing form
of Christianity, that has been forgotten. | read more»
