Is there only one way to come to know Jesus- one model for conversion? This book addresses the modern problem of "conversion" through a careful, sociologically informed examination of conversion in the Gospels. Jesus' model of conversion, while realistic, does not conform to any of our popular models of conversion - that is, the socialization model (growth into the faith); the liturgical model; or the personal decision model. This study suggests that elements of all of these models are present within the Gospel accounts and that an informed and enhanced reading of the Gospels should engender appreciation for differences in the contemporary church.
Is there only one way to come to know Jesus - one model for conversion? This volume addresses the modern problems of conversion through a careful, sociologically informed examination of conversion in the Gospels. Popular models of conversion today are based on three different versions: socialization (growth of faith), liturgical (ushered in by ceremonies such as baptism or confirmation), or personal (people are not converted until they make a personal decision). This study suggests that elements of all three models are present within the Gospel accounts and that an informed and enhanced reading of the Gospels should prompt appreciation of different approaches in the Church today.
