The Transformative Power of Faith

The Transformative Power of Faith

A Narrative Approach to Conversion

eBook - 2012
Rate this:
This book argues that thick, embodied faith uniquely sustains moral transformation among those whom society deems "hopeless." It insists that by applying a narrative lens to religious conversion, we can better understand the dynamics of personal transformation in ways that make sense of psychological and social factors without ignoring so-called "spiritual" ones. It also helps us comprehend why religion often refuses to remain tamed or contained in the personal or private sphere many Americans wish.
