At the Seoul-2016 IAMS Assembly, we are going to examine issues of conversion and religious change from the multiple perspective shaping contemporary mission studies. The issues of conversion and religious change have not received enough scholarly attention by missiologists and Christian theologians working in the discipline. In many ways the questions of conversion and transformation have been dealt with by other sciences, such as social studies, general psychology and psychology of religion, philosophy, developmental studies, pedagogy, etc. These questions have often been answered by theologians and missiologists who would employ historical or denominational approaches to conversion and transformation; at the same time, we need wider exchange of views, thus better clarifying our own Christian view on theses issues.
