oa Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - In search of a new life: Conversion motives of Christians and Muslims



In church practice and missiology, conversion is often understood only in one direction (towards Christianity) and with only one valid motive, namely a strictly religious one. This article argues that such a view is inadequate. Conversion should rather be understood as a two-way movement and based on combinations of various motives. It concludes with the presentation of a holistic missiological understanding of conversion. This understanding of conversion may help to promote better understanding and respect between Christians and Muslims.
