In this challenging and provocative book, Gordon T. Smith contends that the chief cause of spiritual immaturity in the evangelical church is an inadequate theology of conversion. Conversion, he says, involves more than a release from the consequences of sin - the goal is spiritual transformation. But there is little transformation without a complete and authentic conversion. The key is beginning well. In this age of false starts and stunted growth, maturing Christians need help reflecting on and interpreting their own religious experience. Beginning Well is a catalyst toward this end. Through a survey of Scripture, spiritual autobiographies and a broad range of theologies of conversion (Protestant and Catholic, Reformed and Wesleyan), the author moves us from a short-sighted "minimalist" view to one that recognizes seven elements necessary for good conversions. This book - a stirring call to rethink the relationship between conversion and transformation - is a must-read for pastors, evangelists, spiritual directors, seminary professors and others who are concerned about the nurture and development of Christian converts, and the nature of authentic religious experience.
