Item description for Conversion in the New Testament: Paul and the Twelve by Richard Peace & David M. Scholer...

Drawing on years of experience in the craft of communicating the gospel and on the very best biblical and psychological scholarship, Peace provides the definitive study taht the field of evangelism has long needed. Pastoral leaders are rightly suspicious of evangelistic paradigms that restrict God's grace to inflexible patterns of response; evangelists are rightly suspicious of developmental theories that deprecate the critical birth of the spiritual life. This detailed and sensitive volume goes far to answer both concerns, and it could well be the catalyst for new models of evangelism in countless congregations wearied by the jaded techniques of religious consumerism.

Publishers Description
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. Richard 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 - What do customers think about Conversion in the New Testament: Paul and the Twelve?

Conversion of the New Testament  Jan 17, 2007
This is a very stimulating discussion identifying two distinctive views of conversion. One follows Paul's Damansus road 'instant' experience (which has been the model for many evangelicals) while the other looks at a gradual conversion (of the 12) as layed out in Mark's gospel. This second model, Peace contends, is where biblical and pastoral focus needs to be more clearly examined. A very well put together read.
An extaordinary book  Aug 19, 2002
This reader found Peace's take on conversion to be innovative and helpful. We live in an "instant age" (coffee, pudding, credit approval, and even conversion), and Peace reminds us that conversion, like love, is something that is often gradual and needs to be slowly nurtured. The main text and argument are well documented and supported by scripture, and the final section on practical application was a joy to read. Peace gives us back another model of conversion - and one we should not take too lightly. It is after all, the model which brought the original 12 to Christ.
What is normative conversion?  Aug 17, 2000
Peace writes an exceptional book that identifies the component parts of normative conversion using Paul's encounter with the Risen Christ on the Damascus road as the paradigm. He steps outside the evangelical box by taking these component parts and identifying them in the pilgrimage of the disciples of Jesus in mark's gospel. By identifying a gradual conversion process he allows mainline christians to reclaim the language of evangelism from fundamentalists.
Conversion in the New Testament  Nov 30, 1999
Richard Peace has already amply demonstrated he understands the application of theology in the real world. This book shows that he's a leader in understanding the dynamics at work in the bible and putting them in a context that makes sense in our time.
