This new collection of essays explores the subject of conversion in the Wesleyan tradition from biblical, historical, theological, and practical points of view. Written by leading Wesleyan scholars, the essays reinvoke the notion of conversion as an identifiable experience in the Christian's life. The contributors, drawn from a diversity of backgrounds, rightly call for a much needed, and inclusive, balance: process and instantaneousness, nurture and regeneration, holy living and vibrant faith. The recovery of conversion as an illuminating paradigm of saving grace promises both renewal and revitalization in the Wesleyan tradition.

Normally I stray away from books that are written by a group of authors. In this case I would have missed a good book had I done so. Of course about the only reason that I started the book was because it was about John Wesley, Methodism etc... Kenneth J. collis and John H. Tyson have done a good job of gathering authors to write about conversion in the Wesleyan tradition. I read all of it and enjoyed it. The book certainly is out of and for the Wesleyan tradition and is enlightening. It is the kind of book I am happy to have in my library. J.
