Item description for Conversion in the Wesleyan Tradition by John H. Tyson & Kenneth J. Collins...
Overview This collection seeks to re-invoke the notion of conversation as an identifiable experience in a Christian's life in opposition to gradualist soteriologies that now predominate, in the opinion of the contributors, among Methodists. The notion of conversion is explored by a diverse body of scholars from various Methodist traditions and fields of study--bible, history, theology and practical.
Publishers Description This new collection of essays explores the subject of conversion in the Wesleyan tradition from biblical, historical, theological, and practical points of view. Written by leading Wesleyan scholars, the essays reinvoke the notion of conversion as an identifiable experience in the Christian's life. The contributors, drawn from a diversity of backgrounds, rightly call for a much needed, and inclusive, balance: process and instantaneousness, nurture and regeneration, holy living and vibrant faith. The recovery of conversion as an illuminating paradigm of saving grace promises both renewal and revitalization in the Wesleyan tradition.

Conversion in the Wesleyan traditon. May 5, 2008
The book compiled by Dr. Ken Collins and John Tyson is a real treat , along with getting the history of conversion in the Wesleyan movement we get the progressive and evangelical acts in which there are articles about the aboliton movement women's sufferage. One can see how evangelical and progressive the Wesleyan movement is while staying true to biblical principles. Besides writtings by Kenneth collins there are articles from other great scholars such as Joel B Green , William J Abraham, and Ben Witherington the third. The book is a strong compelation of wesleyan thought. It is a good book to have for any Methodist, Wesleyan or Nazarene.
