Turning to God

Full Product Description

‘Turning To God’ questions the age old skepticisms of religious conversion – is it necessary? Is it biblical? Or is it simply something the church has adopted into mainstream thought?

David F. Wells tackles this challenging question head on, with biblical strength and religious humility. He successfully compares Christianity with the other major religions, making the striking observation that salvation and conversion make Christianity unique.

Laying all the facts on the table, this book offers a very balanced and thought-out discussion on Christian conversion mapping its history, scriptural grounding and the controversy surrounding it. Those who want to better understand this fundamental process will find this read to be enlightening and challenging.

Publisher's Description

Does a person have to "convert" to be a Christian? Or can one merely "follow" Jesus by studying Scripture? Does the Bible ever say that conversion is necessary? Or is it a development of the church?

Turning to God explores these fundamental questions about regeneration and conversion, distinguishing Christianity from every other faith as one in which conversion is unique, supernatural, and necessary for salvation. In it you will find a clear, thoughtful, balanced discussion of the Christian conversion experience, including its history, controversy, and scriptural basis.

Anyone who has marveled at the mystery of how and why we turn to God, along with those skeptical of religious conversion, will find themselves challenged and encouraged by this thorough treatment of one of the fundamentals of the Christian faith.
