Synopsis

  • 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.
