 DESCRIPTION
spacer

Drawing on insights from psychology sociology, anthropology, history, theology, and missiology, the author provides a critique and evaluation of religious conversion throughout the world. The book examines the role of cultural and social factors in the conversion process, and describes how different religions and disciplines view conversion.

The reader’s knowledge is enhanced with a heightened sense of the richness and multi-dimensionality of the conversion process. Descriptions of supporting case histories and data are vivid and well integrated. Explicitly and implicitly, the author invites the social scientist of religion to initiate exciting research, and the theologian to consider what converts to various faiths have in common.

This book is an erudite, systematic study of the process of religious conversion by a scholar whose exhaustive knowledge of the subject is probably unequalled. It is likely the single-most comprehensive compendium of the literature on religious conversion. It is a ‘must read’ for anyone who wants to be abreast of the topic.
