Conversion : the old and the new in religion from Alexander the Great to Augustine of Hippo by Arthur Darby Nock( Book )

84 editions published between 1933 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of the circumstances and psychology of religious conversion during the last three centuries before Christ and the first four of the Christian era. The central theme is, of course, Christianity and its converts, of whom St. Augustine of Hippo is the great example; but Professor Nock also discusses the influence of philosophy, notably on Julian, and surveys the Non-Christian religions of the ancient world, the way in which they spread and the measure of their success. The book is written in untechnical language for the general reader, and it will be of equal interest to students of the Roman Empire and to students of the general problem of religious conversion

The varieties of religious experience : a study in human nature by William James( Book )

13 editions published between 1960 and 1975 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William James believed that individual religious experiences, rather than the precepts of organized religions, were the backbone of the world's religious life. His discussions of conversion, repentance, mysticism and saintliness, and his observations on actual, personal religious experiences -- all support this thesis. In his introduction, Martin E. Marty discusses how James' pluralistic view of religion led to his remarkable tolerance of extreme forms of religious behaviour, his challenging, highly original theories, and his welcome lack of pretension in all of his observations one the individual and the divine
