Conversion

£4.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

"Christianity is not the only world religion in which conversion experiences occur, but it does seem to be a unique feature of Christianity that conversion is experienced in terms of answering a call from and entering into a personal relationship with a master who is himself God and man. Do these conversion experiences have anything in common? As an attempt to see if patterns of conversion can be established, this book examines the conversions of Christians from different times and different backgrounds, and then looks back to discover what conclusions, if any, may be drawn. Thus after discussions of three fundamental models of conversion, Paul, Augustine and Francis, we have portraits of Martin Luther, Ignatius Loyola, Blaise Pascal, Armand-Jean de Rance, founder of the Trappist order, John Bunyan, William Booth, Charles de Foucauld, Edith Stein, Simone Weil and Thomas Merton. These life stories make fascinating reading in themselves; even more fascinating in the final chapter when, looking back on the figures whom he has introduced, the author draws together some of the consequences of what we have seen."

Book in very good condition, although there is a small inscription on the first page.
