Turning to God

David Wells

Turning to God

David Wells

$13.99

Paperback

"Externally, Christian conversion is opposed on religious and ideological grounds by those who are hostile to the Christian faith. Internally, many churches and denominations have failed to preserve and teach the biblical view of conversion."

Over the past century the evangelical view of the nature and process of 'Christian conversion' has been steadily challenged by social gospel theologies and the move towards a world religion. David Wells calls for a return to biblical understanding of conversion. Drawing on the Bible, Church history, and modern conversion experiences, he presents a convincing and stimulating picture which takes into account both the theology and the experience of conversion.

He compares the experiences of those within and outside the Christian tradition, and discusses the difficulties of Christian conversion to Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists and Materialists. Finally, he looks to the future of biblical teaching and warns that it needs to be carefully guarded.

Truth never changes, but people and culture do. These shifting circumstances and new problems and ideas can lead us to question aspects of the faith that our forefathers took for granted. Does a person have to "convert" to be a Christian? Or can one merely "follow" Jesus by studying Scripture? Does the Bible ever say that conversion is necessary? Or is it a development of the church?
