Overview

This inspiring look at conversion in the Bible offers promising new changes in the way we view-and do-evangelism today.

In order to be effective in evangelism, one must clearly understand the dynamics of conversion. Richard Peace here examines two very different conversion experiences-Paul's and the twelve disciples'-and explains their implications for contemporary evangelism. By showing how conversion can take place either suddenly or gradually over time, Peace gives good reasons, and suggests practical ways, to replace one-sided evangelism techniques with more wholistic methods.

Editorial Reviews

CBA Marketplace
"This robust theology warrants careful consideration because understanding of conversion governs evangelism practices. The book concludes with helpful insights on how this approach to conversion can assist in evangelizing a cynical, post-Christian society. This study is critically needed in a church jaded with the "selling Jesus" evangelistic paradigm."
Interpretation
This book combines insights from the fields of New Testament studies and practical theology to produce an understanding of Christian conversion that is both exegetically illuminating and ecclesiastically useful.
Church Times (U.K.)
"Peace's book is a valuable reminder of the essential variety of Christian experience which is found in the New Testament, and should prevent us from making superficial judgements about the "right" way to evangelise."
