The author develops a multi-dimensional methodology for the analysis of conversion motives. He suggests examining conversion narratives consecutively from the perspective of theology, sociology, psychology of religion and anthropology. In a second step, the results of each discipline are analysed in a critical dialogue in view of the conversion motives in each case study.
