Gordon T. Smith (PhD, Loyola School of Theology, Ateneo de Manila University) is president of Ambrose University College and Seminary in Calgary, Alberta.

Endorsements

"Transforming Conversion is a welcome addition to the growing literature on conversion. With great skill, Smith explores the fields of biblical studies, theology, church history, and religious biography to develop new language to capture the complexity of conversion. Unwilling to be confined to the outdated and inaccurate language of revivalism, Smith articulates a holistic understanding of conversion to guide renewed modes of outreach for a church often paralyzed toward evangelism in the twenty-first century."
--Richard Peace,
Robert Boyd Munger Professor of Evangelism and Spiritual Formation,
Fuller Theological Seminary

"This is an important book and full of surprises. What appears to be a simple historical survey of 'conversion literature' turns into a serious work on the theology of conversion. Transforming Conversion is of ecumenical interest because Smith's attention to the doctrinal and sacramental aspects of conversion goes far to bridge the divide separating evangelicals from Orthodox and Catholic believers. It is heartily recommended."
--Patrick Henry Reardon,
Senior Editor, Touchstone: A Journal of Mere Christianity
