What motivates previously unchurched people to become Christians today?
By what process does conversion occur?
What do (and what could) other Christians and churches do to help facilitate this process?
Lynne's PhD explored these questions, and resulted in a new model and theory of conversion to Christianity. In this evening lecture, Lynne introduces the model and explores some of the implications of her research findings for the church.
