In Evangelical Conversion Dr. Sean McGever focuses on a key aspect of evangelical theology: conversion. He begins by looking at the origin of the evangelical theology of conversion specifically through the ministries and teachings of John Wesley and George Whitefield. McGever then explores different dynamics that characterized the early evangelical view of conversion and compares that to the modern church’s understanding of conversion. He concludes the course by making some recommendations about how we could refocus and look at evangelical conversion in a new light by looking at where it began. This course will be beneficial for anyone who cares about evangelism and evangelical conversion.
