n Missionalia : Southern African Journal of Mission Studies - Finding and Losing Faith : Studies in Conversion, Christopher Partridge, Helen Reid (Eds.) : book review

Volume 38, Issue 3
  • ISSN : 0256-9507



The present volume is devoted to the concept of "conversion" , a topic which is rarely discussed in detail. The work is focused on conversion to and from Christianity or within culturally Christian contexts. Moreover, this is done principally through the filter of the British context, including the legacy of British colonialism. Having said that, it is very clearly not a book solely about Christianity and the British. It is primarily a religio-cultural exploration of conversion which, overall, raises key issues relating to conversion and life in religiously plural societies (:xii).
