Item description for More Fascinating Conversion Stories by Samuel Fisk...
Overview Conversion is "a radical change, a transformation, a turning around,...a conscious act, not an event passively experienced. For the Christian, the changed life of the converted is the outward expression of a changed heart" (from The New Internation Dictionary of the Christian Chruch). As a sequel to his previous book, "Forty Fascinating Conversion Stories," Samuel Fisk once again presents the personal, life-changing experiences behind the definition. For many of the persons presented in this volume, conversion was only the beginning of many years of dedicated Christian service and, for some, widespread fame and recognition by their contempories. The focus of "More Fascinating Conversion Stories," however, is upon the actual circumstances and decisions that resulted in a changed heart. Included in the collection are the dramatic conversion stories of: William Jennings Bryan, the American political leader; George Mueller, the orphanage founder; John Wesley founder of the Methodist church; William Wilberforce, English social reformer and statesman; and Bill Stiles, the last of the Jesse James gang.
Publishers Description The focus of these stories is on the circumstances and decisions that resulted in the changed lives of figures such as George Mueller, John Wesley, and William Wilberforce.
