Crisis Can Be Survived...

As bad as it is, as terrible as it makes you feel, a crisis can be survived. What is more, a time of crisis can be turned into a time of growth...

This hopeful feature of crisis is what we call the Phoenix Factor. The phoenix of mythology was a wondrous bird that lived for a thousand years and died in a sudden burst of flame. As its funeral pyre burned, the phoenix underwent a magical transformation -- instead of being consumed, the phoenix rose from the flames, born anew, more beautiful than ever, to live another thousand years.

There is a Phoenix factor in human life, too. When your world collapses in the flames of crisis, you can emerge reborn...

The phoenix factor is present in every crisis situation, but you have to know how to use it.

Not only can it be done; you can do it. Perhaps not simply or painlessly, but with proper understanding of the nature of crisis and the knowledge of the techniques explained in this book, you can turn crisis away from harm and toward health.
--Karl Slaikeu and Steve Lawhead
