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. 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.

Reviews
"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."
       - Church Times (U.K.)

"This book is an excellent study of biblical themes that converge on conversion. The bibliography is also excellent. For those interested in how the Bible can again become relevant to the contemporary church or those who want to add real depth to the church growth movement, this book is well worth the time and energy spent on it."
        - Clergy Journal

"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."
