Robb Ryerse is the author of the book, Fundamorphosis, which tells the story of Robb’s theological transformation. Drawing from scenes throughout his life, Robb describes both the moments that shook the fundamentalism with which he was raised and the ways in which his faith has re-emerged more vibrant and alive than ever before.
Robb states, “I wrote Fundamorphosis because I don’t think I’m the only pastor who has preached sermons I wasn’t sure I believed. I don’t think I’m the only believer who had a crisis of faith over the certitude of fundamentalism. I don’t think I’m the only Christian who has tried to re-imagine our faith in an emerging culture. Fundamorphosis is the story of how my beliefs about God, life, and church have changed. My hope is that it will be an encouragement and help to those who are going through a similar metamorphosis.”
Fundamorphosis was published November 2012.

Robb Ryerse’s Fundamorphosis gently addresses the psychological pain and nagging intellectual questions of so many who have been shaped by fundamentalist Christianity. - Mark Scandrette, author ofSoul Graffiti and Practicing the Way of Jesus
This is a compelling story of personal and theological change, told with wisdom and insight. - John R. Franke, General Coordinator, The Gospel and Our Culture Network
How refreshing to read Robb Ryerse’s Fundamorphosis, an account of leaving fundamentalism while retaining faith. - Drew Dyck, managing editor of Leadership Journal, author of Generation Ex-Christian
So many struggle with keeping their faith when confronted with those who preach an unjust, proud, and merciless gospel. It’s encouraging to read the story a Christian who has at long last met Christ.
